Why I Lambasted Sesan Over ‘Skelewu’ Video—Davido Opens Up
Several unprecedented events happened in the entertainment industry in Nigeria in 2013. Apart from the superlative events that shook the industry, few odd things occurred in the year. One of them was the music video of Davido's hit single, 'Skelewu', which had many videos.
When the singer released the song, he tasked his fans to record the 'Skelewu' dance with any device of their choices and upload such on the internet. This was exactly was D'Banj did when he released his smash hit single, 'Oliver Twist'.
As expected, many people responded to it and in a short time, the 'Omo Baba Olowo' announced that he was shooting the music video of the song.
However, before its official release, the music video, shot by Sesan, reportedly leaked on the internet, but the video received knocks from fans, who felt disappointed at the work. As a way of damage control, Davido took to twitter to dissociate himself from the video and slammed Sesan for the job.
He thereafter announced that he was contracting UK-based music video director, Moe Musa for another shoot of the song. Though the second job fell below expectation, Davido later gave up on the job after he was slammed by his fans as he was allegedly planning to shoot a third video for the song.
Speaking recently on why he publicly took on Sesan, Davido declared that he felt bad about what Sesan did because he had expected much from him.
Corroborating him, his cousin, Shina Rambo, lamented that Sesan didn't do what was expected from him. He said they were angry with him (Sesan) because they paid hugely for the job and thought he would do what would be appreciated by all.
