Music of Thursday, 23 July 2015
One?year after releasing the song, Legelege, musician, Mzbel, came out with its video on Tuesday, July 14.
Mzbel is noted for the production of good videos and Legelgege is no different. The first scene of the 2.40 minutes video, shot and directed by Phamous Philms shows Mzbel team her gold evening dress with a tekua headgear lying in a chair.
The song, Legelege talks about the beauty of the African woman and her assets. And typical of the sultry singer, her dancers come on shaking their behinds sporting halter neck tops and thigh length slitted long skirts made from sheer fabrics.
In the video, Mzbel takes it easy as she sings from the chair. And later joins her dancers somewhere along the line to do ‘formation’ dance moves. And they do shake what their Mama gave them sometimes amidst some smoking effects.
The scenes from the clip switch among Mzbel singing, her female and male dancers, a display of artefacts as well as a slide show of men playing various instruments.
The 2.40 minutes video clip is pleasing to the eye and one will certainly not get bored watching it.
And of course it will not be a Mzbel video, if she does not show some flesh. Sporting a pair of black knickers and a sheer top plus her hair worn in a long pony tail, she brings the exciting video to a close and fades away with the song at the end of the music video.
Talking to Showbiz last Friday, Mzbel said she acknowledged the significance of music videos to an artiste’s brand and said it had been a major contributing factor to her well known brand over the years.
“Mzbel is known for good videos. From the early stages of my career till date, I have put in a lot in my videos and within this short period of releasing the video of Legelege, I have received positive feedback about it,” she stated.
When asked what motivated the concept for the video, she said, “If you listen to the rhythm of the song, one could tell that it was traditional Francophone style and so the video had to be African and traditional.
“Legelege is not a funky song so it was really important to get a good concept to tell the story and I’m really excited about the outcome,” she added.
Since February this year when the Awoso Me artiste held her Red Carpet show to mark 10 years of doing music, she has been releasing songs. Last month, she released a highlife song titled Ekua.
Take It Slow, Help Stop Dumsor, One More Time and Onye Ogbemi are some of the songs she has released this year.
