On Set with Nigeria’s rap princess Mo’Cheddah: Behind the Scenes at the video shoot for “If You Want Me”



BellaNaija brought you the exclusive first listen of Mo’Cheddah‘s official debut single “If You Want Me” in 2009. Mo’Cheddah has built her rap credibility via scene stealing features on Knighthouse tracks. She also excelled during last year’s Hennessy Artistry competition.
She recently filmed the video for “If You Want Me”. From these photos, it seems like the video will be a hot one. From Mo’Cheddah rocking a couture piece from designer Lanre DaSilva-Ajayi‘s “Golden Girl” collection to having a shouting match with her on-screen boo, we can’t wait to see the finished product.
The video was shot by Clarence Peters.
Check out the photos below and listen to the track as well.

    If i want to listen to a song, i would listen to the Asa, Omawumi, Waje of this world. She can rap no doubt, but sing? Thats like a tall dream. This song is a joke!

    I agree Soso, its auto-tone, she sounds like she held her nose to belch out the vocals. The vocals is zero, she should stick to rap.

    A part of me wants to say this girl is just 19 years old… but it’s not her fault that she’s living her dreams earlier than I’m living mine so…

    She sounds a bit like Nicole from Pussycat Dolls.Don’t knock the chick’s hustle,
    if she has fans that like her sound, goodluck to her.

    ABEG JO, free Mo’Cheddah. This is her #1 fan soeaking.
    the chick has a hot voice. Listen to Uncensored, Shampoo, and her Christmas 09 album. She’s got talent!

    I’m surprised that the video is for her first song, she’s done other songs after that.
    Anyhows, I cant wait to see me some Mo’Cheddah!

    *loves her look in that LDA, chick’s looking absolutely stunning*

    This is a fantastic song and i dont know what all u ppl are saying about autotune. sure
    her voice’s been treated but that’s def not autotune. Go n listen to little wayne, kanye or even D’banj to hear autotune and then hey…it’s the biz. y’all dont complain about all the thousands of artists tht do use autotune; abeg free the babe. she looks HOT and sounds even HOTTER. really looking forward to seeing the vid…..’Mo’Cheddah diva o lenu jo’

    If ur still waiting for someone that can sing proper, ur on a looooong tin! which artiste doesnt have some form of processing on their voice these days? Concerning the artiste mo’cheddah, she’s got a good voice and talent… if its true that she’s just 19 then all i have for her is encouragement and as far as the song goes, i think its on point… Mo’cheddah, diva o lenu.

    you people are still on this ‘i hate vocal tuning’ blah blah blah blah…
    Almost all the american artistes have used tuning and efx on their vocals cos they want
    to appeal to the pop crowd. i dont think cheddar is claiming to be the naija bebe
    winas. the artistes wey sing pass, una buy dem album?? abeg… young, rapper,
    singer, entertainer, student, hot enough to be a model…. must be beef.
