See the video for Brymo’s new single, “Heya!”

The lead single from his new album, 'Oṣó'

Brymo is arguably one of the most creative artists in Nigeria at the moment and it has seen him garner as many fans as it has haters. Since his career took a bit of a wobble after his exit from Chocolate City, the singer has seemed on a mission to win over more fans with decidedly conceptual releases like his Klitoris album released in 2016. His latest effort is the video for “Heya!”, the lead single from his new album, Oṣó. 

As a lead single,“Heya!” does a good job of conveying the crux of the 10-track album which his website describes as an introspective project built on “philosophy and rhythm”. For the Ayomikun Oludoyi directed video, Brymo goes off the grid dressed in nothing but a vaguely revealing pant. Through the video, we see clips of Brymo playing a piano and exploring the earth under Lagos’ Third Mainland Bridge. He sings “Some dey talk and some dey walk and time just dey pass us by”, as the video cuts from cars moving on the bridge, to a barely clothed Brymo—who looks straight out of a “God’s Must Be Crazy” set—walking under the bridge. Drawing inspiration from the San tribe in Africa for his costume, it’s perhaps a reflection of how one place can change over time.
