Fast-rising Afro-Jazz singer and songwriter, Nissi Ogulu, simply known as Nissi, releases the anticipated visuals for one of her most recent singles, Trouble off her forthcoming EP.
When Nissi, who is Spaceship Records’ first signing, released the audio in December 2019 alongside Tornado, it was clear that a regular, run of the mill video wouldn’t do the song justice.
Trouble encapsulates brilliant blends of Afro-Pop and Dancehall to deliver an up-tempo, infectious, drum-led genre-bending song. Laced by Nissi’s velvety vocals, arresting delivery and vibrant flow, Trouble is a song of redemption narrated from a feminine point of view. It’s a song that rebels against any pre-set notions or underestimation of the female gender.
The visuals open with Nissi, who was followed by “her girls”, strutting into a local neighbourhood bar, immediately becoming the cynosure for all present. In no time, a tussle for her attention begins, affirming her stance as she sings: “as soon as the girls organize, it’s trouble… and “if by chance you’re in the way you will know”.
The video was directed by The Alien.
