Lagos has seen more of Skepta since his legendary set at NATIVELAND 2016. This year alone, the rapper has tilted towards a subtle green-white-green campaign; hosting his debut BBK concert in March, bagging a chieftaincy title and releasing “Energy” featuring, Starboy Wizkid on the chorus. Though “Energy” is more a tribute to the positive vibes, Meji Alabi provides more context for Skep and Wiz’s unlikely friendship with a vacation-themed music video shot in Lagos.
“Energy” captures the power of two of the most charismatic artists on earth, simply having fun on a beach. While Skepta and Wizkid perform their verses, the Lagos art scene cameos through notable appearances from several indie creatives like Bai, Falana, Wavy the Creator, Santi and more. Their presence highlights Skepta’s chemistry with Nigeria’s growing urban culture.
