Maybach Music boss, Rick Ross has released a new video shot in Lagos, Nigeria. The American rapper performed in Lagos few months ago and the video shoot was the first thing he did once touching down in Lagos.
The video is the Nigerian version of Rozay’s song, Hold Me Back. A lot of Nigerians have been airing their opinions on the video with many saying Rick Ross has helped Nigeria wash her dirty linen in public. Others just appreciate the quality of Rozay’s work and enjoy the music.
We came across a couple of tweets from some Nigerian artists about the new video. Here are three of the ones that caught our eyes.
“@idcabasa_coded: It’s so sad dat it took a foreign artiste 2 tell d 9ja situation in a song! All we do nowadays is sing abt a fake life u might never live”
“@idcabasa_coded: Many dress like Fela, smoke more than Fela Bt none of them make sense like him! Rick came and did what Fela would ve done!”
“@BrymOlawale: Rick ross kill am for this video tho, conceptual!!! Cc@jessejagz”
Well said Cabasa; it’s high time our artists started using their music to address the Nigerian situation. You don’t have to shoot all your videos abroad. Kudos to those already addressing the Nigerian situation.
