BN Exclusive – WORLD PREMIERE: Ego – Fall In Love


As the vocalist for Lagbaja’s band, Ego amassed a lot of fans and after she left to pursue a solo career, her fans have been waiting for this talented singer to release her solo material.  ‘Fall in Love‘ is Ego’s first single off her debut album which will be released before the end of the year. The album is a fusion of soul, jazz, afrobeat, R&B. The album was produced by the talented Cobhams Asuquo and co-produced by the equally talented Nathaniel Bassey. The album which also contains songs including I Believe, Bianulu and Palava. You can feel Ego’s love for mellow,soulful vibes from this album.

The video for “Fall In Love” was shot in Brooklyn, New York and directed by the very creative Kemi Adetiba of K’Alpha Innovations. The video features a surprise cameo from the multi-talented (and handsome) eLDee!

        Abi oh, I’ve watched this video about 10 times now…the acting and directing is so good. Eldee could well have been a professional actor, same goes for Ego. I think Kemi Adetiba has definitely changed the game for good !

  • Aibee September 1, 2010 at 1:45 pm

    Great song, great video. Me likey. Love Ego’s costumes too particularly the ‘ibo ankara’ (you know the one the igbo women in Lagos wear for their community association mettings, lol). Eldee looks so hot, i think I’m in love with him. however, the other chic definitely looked hotter than Ego so I’d have picked her if i were Eldee too!

  • Aibee September 1, 2010 at 1:51 pm

    Loved the video so much I went back to watch it. What’s with the ‘my sink is clogged’? lol. Now I’m really pitying Ego,lol. Eeeeeya, pele. Rminds me of Disappearing Act a la Snipes and Sonia Lathan.

  • pweery babie September 1, 2010 at 2:01 pm

    yea the cobhams touch is so there. Nice one from Kemi too…I love good music, but the majority of nigerians love noise, so thats my concern for classy artists like Ego.

  • show me hate September 1, 2010 at 2:48 pm

    This song + plus video is good..ish…I likey

  • Ifreke September 1, 2010 at 3:34 pm

    well,quite frankly,Ego hits those dizzy heights again! and just to feel among,Nathaniel is my cousin…Hihi!

  • beese September 1, 2010 at 4:21 pm

    there was this look ego had at the last straw trying to get the guy, when the other chick appeared and placed a hand on Eldee’s shoulder at her door…it was so….touching. i think i shed a tear. for all the heartbroken darlings out there. love is tough. sigh!

  • Segz4u September 1, 2010 at 5:13 pm

    Nice video.
    Eldee the Don is now Eldee the repair man or if u like plumber/technican…lol!
    The best of concept came into the clip. Rep.Naija mehn!

  • Bukky September 1, 2010 at 9:07 pm

    Very nice and convincing video! Nice vocals!!

  • Casy September 1, 2010 at 11:00 pm

    I think I wanna be in love 2, Oh Ma Goist!

  • Ujubaby September 2, 2010 at 12:14 am

    Heya @Grace, don’t worry He’ll surely send urs, amen!

  • nawaooh September 2, 2010 at 5:55 am

    nawaoh, how come not one person has said ego was trying to be quite the husband snatcher in the video. lovely video, but sorry I can sympathize with her. Wait till soemone tries to “chyke” your man in front of you! hiss!

  • nawaooh September 2, 2010 at 5:56 am

    meant “I can’t sympathise with her”

  • Smiles September 2, 2010 at 7:05 am

    I love ego, but the lyrics could have being deeper. This could be so much more soulful. Still love her

  • Dee September 2, 2010 at 9:29 am

    Mehn Kemi Adetiba is on a whole ‘nother level. Her work just keeps getting better………..the babe is seriously raising the bar. Her creative/artistic direction is really to be commended. Fantastic video!!
    Ego has always been one helluva singer and clearly she’d make a good actress too. You did it once again.
    As for the Don……he was working the handy man part.
    Big ups y’all!!

  • RMG September 2, 2010 at 12:18 pm

    some people won’t just stop criticising!!!It’s a job very well done abeg!

  • KemiPen September 2, 2010 at 12:43 pm

    I Love Love Love the song…can’t stop listening to it and the vid, need I say is brilliantly directed and produced…
    Ok, I have to write that it was not until dis vid did I realize or think of eLDee as being HAWT!!! Dang!

    [Hmmm! I can’t believe I wrote that out loud…Hahahahaha…anyways, d word is on the street…just appreciatin’ sumthin’ gud]

    Back to “Ego”: She did not fail to deliver an amazing vocal…it was like listening to Indie Arie + with a little of Asa or maybe much more…But Geez! I can relate w/ Ego on dis one…You love/like a guy and he just does not realize b/c of all those small small distractions…Oh my!

    Gr8 Job Ego on the vocal…and on d vid, nice one Kemi…I love the concept.

  • beese September 2, 2010 at 2:17 pm

    @nawaooh: nah! ego is not playing the husband-snatcher, and neither is the other chick. i think they are all neighbours, and both chicks have their eyes on the el-dee. i dont think it has a lot to do with who is prettier, but who is bolder. Ego always chickens out when the other lady comes along with her audacious moves…men are usually to preoccupied, so i guess the bolder one gets the pie. lol!

  • bookie September 2, 2010 at 10:33 pm

    lovely, ego didnt disappoint me, i really didnt like it when she left lagbaja for her solo career, and i tot can she make it, bt now she has proved me wrong, u go girl, fab video.

  • Shade September 3, 2010 at 4:00 am

    The song is very nice, she’s definitely a very talented artiste. The video showed her make up in bad light in some parts and I thought she was rejoicing a bit too much in some parts of the video for someone who wasn’t getting something…

  • crackhead September 5, 2010 at 2:41 am

    at least ego is using her glo money for good use….dis is an excellent outng from ego…didnt knw she could sing like dis…this song is so international.kemi adetiba killed it with d video…i love it ….100/50

  • THE AMAKA September 7, 2010 at 8:16 am

    and the whole time i thought the guy in the video was M.I, i always get the two confused, they look so much alike. lol
    but uhm…the video was nice, cool, sweet, but something about the storyline was sketchy….unless she is American based and thats where her target market is.
    i mean, the plumber? lol

  • ijey April 2, 2011 at 11:06 am

    wow! nice one Ego.
