VIDEO: M.I Abaga ft. Nonso Amadi – “Playlist”

M.I. Abaga debuts the music video for hit single, Playlist featuring Nonso Amadi.

The sublime affair upholds a tradition of unforgettable and cinematic visuals from M.I.

The video has a unique visual language with a 70s inspired look blended into a modern context. It uses natural light, in a way that feels familiar to anyone who’s lived in Lagos. Director UA makes Lagos feel mystical.

M.I. Abaga barely needs no introduction. Fondly called Hip-hop’s Messiah (but rather seriously by his biggest fans), he brought rap music into the popular consciousness across Africa with hits like Safe, Number 1, and Anoti. He set standards in the industry, while managing a successful career spanning 10 years and counting, giving Africa the likes of Wizkid, Ice Prince, Jesse Jagz and Brymo.

Playlist by MI Abaga featuring Nonso Amadi, is the crowning single off the Rendezvous project. With barely any promotion, the artist’s loyal fanbase pushed the track to the number 1 spot on his Spotify with almost a million plays. Throughout the project are strategic collaborations, an M.I trademark. M.I’s genius ambition is obvious on this particular track; gunning for the top of all summer playlists with fan favorite Nonso Amadi on the hook.
