Reekado Banks and Vanessa Mdee Catch The Love Bug In “Move” Video

A sultry club jam

How far would you go for love? Well Vanessa Mdee might not go as far as the moon but she has crossed political and label boundaries for Reekado Banks.

The Mavins recording artist released a new single, “Move” with an accompanying video directed by Clarence Peters featuring Tanzanian pop singer, Vanessa Mdee. For those who didn’t know already, Reekado Banks shows that there’s more to East Africa than Kenya. With Victoria Kimani’s connection to Chocolate City, it’s easy to forget that other East Africa countries also have talents in their music industries unless Vanessa has something to say about it. Leaving her MTV VJ career behind, she has focused more on music and grown more acclaimed with last year’s “Cash Madame” blowing up outside Tanzania.

Produced by Altims, “Move” is a sultry club number featuring a cross-continental romance between Reekado Banks and Vanessa Mdee. Reekado Banks begins with his “gbedu wey dey burst brain” catchphrase declaring that “Move” would fit right into DJ mixes thanks to a similar drum arrangement with Vanessa’s “Never Ever”. The energetic yet oddly somber beat sees him play against Vanessa Mdee’s emotional vocalizing to effectively deliver the song’s message of wooing and  winning a lover’s affection.

Clarence Peters shot the video for “Money” with a storyline that brings to mind Rihanna’s “What’s My Name” featuring Drake. But the traditional African attires and dancers keep it legit.
