Talented new school act and Spaceship Record’s current golden boy, Buju, releases visuals for the remix of his hit single, L’enu, featuring label founder and African Giant, Burna Boy. This collaboration doesn’t come as a surprise to fans and followers of the artiste as it was hinted over a couple of weeks ago by the artiste himself. Buju who recently got signed by Spaceship Records drops his first video under the label, and I, or rather, the team and I had a couple of things to say after watching under scrutiny.
Firstly, we’d like to appreciate the video director, TG Omori, his team and everyone else who put in work to give viewers quality content. But regardless, a few things/questions need to be said or asked and we’ll make this as brief as possible.
1. The locations – Listening to a song like L’enu, it creates a party or club scene in your mind and no one would definitely think of a school setting. I mean, why’s he telling his classmate “…it’s either you dance or you leave, there’s no place for pretense, I can’t watch you standing” while he attempts to take her up from her sitting position in a place that seems like the school’s hallway?
Also, it’s the close of school day and Uncle Burna comes to pick Buju up from school. Buju’s face is really lit up on his arrival and then you think “okay, it’s party time.” But no, they take a ride around town and end up in somewhere that looks like… definitely not the party or club we were expecting.
It kind of looks like a remake of Wizkid’s ‘Holla At Your Boy’ music video with Banky W.
2. Styling – If we’re keeping it real, Buju or his stylist need to step up their game. He’s looked the same since he gained prominence in the summer of 2019. He doesn’t have as much drip as his peers which really could be bad for branding.
All in all, L’enu is a mad tune, and with the addition of Burna Boy to the remix, we expected nothing less. But as for the video, we do not think it lived up to the hype and was really worth the wait.
