What’s the fuss about? Find Out! Watch Suzie – “My Body” Video

BellaNaija.com

Published

 on

There is considerable buzz/fuss (depending on what side of the fence you are on), about the new video “My Body” by musician, Suzie.
The song “My Body” is a sensual ode to a lover so we guess Suzie wanted to ensure that the video matched the lyrics and tone of the song.
Many have likened the video to D’Angelo’s iconic video for his song “Untitled”.
The video was produced by Clarence Peters – For Capital Dreams Pictures.
We are actually feeling the song and the nudity in the video was quite tastefully done.

    Wonderful song but the video will definitely be banned. A bit too racy for our culture. She could have been more creative.

    @Chilolo: Nudity is a FUNDAMENTAL part of our culture. Nigerians are over religious facetious hypocrites.

    i have nothing against baring skin so far it looks good and is tastefully done.

    this did not look good, the body art was too distracting. the tats did not complement
    her, they overwhelmed her. the hair was too much. a bit too contrived

    the song itself aint bad. i applaud her courage

    If th video was pushing boundaries, I knew it had to be cuz the vocals were mediocre (typical of 9ja female musicians: Goldie, Barbara etc). Methinks I was correct!

    She looked rather uncomfortable towards the end, like “what did I just do?” Who does she want to be watching this video in Naija? The teenagers? Fathers & Mothers? Or university graduates. Abeg there is a place and time for everything, despite the creativity the video is still profane and not suitable for younger audiences. It is R-rated and most likely will be pushed into the pornography industry.

    Why couldn’t we at least see her legs or belly or something. It gets boring very quickly, especially as the face isn’t particularly attractive. Just another excuse for the hapless ratings bodies to have some work to do. Not even worth banning in my opinion.

  18. chichi

    May 13, 2010 at 7:41 pm

    wooooow the video is not sexy at all… the hair was nasty and gressy… the stupid un sexy tattoos they were drawn manly ….

    Nonsense! The song, the Video, everything. Just CRAP!!! Tseeeew…. We don’t need to copy the west on everything. Jeez, how bout we leave out the bad and the ugly hunh? I’ll pray for the salvation of her soul.

    To be honest, the video is really boring and the song is not great either. Her voice needs some work as well but here’s an A for effort. Try to be fresh and original. also peeps lets leave salvation out of this cos the last time I checked, it was personal. Not to be harsh but come on, Nigerians pray d most, have d most churches in d world and yet look at d state of our country, abeg.

    hypocrites!!! y’all just sit dere and judge, why not appreciate a work of art!
    me likey and not cuz its pseudo-nude but cuz it breaks new grounds, a bit
    D’Angelo-esque but it wud stand its own ground anywhere….nice one Suzie

    The video is meh to me, but, when beyonce does it, we are like “best video everrr” when is another
    person from naija “you will go to hell oo! shame on you o!” lol, nawa for our own hypocrisy

    well at least her armpit was clean… but there is nothin racy about it… naija sha we need to change and stop makin big deals outta nothin… sheesh…. nice vid but quite unoriginal…

  32. notaplayahater

    May 14, 2010 at 9:54 am

    the song can pass…not bad. Video on the other hand…. i dunno. really bad make-up, or maybe she’s just too ugly for any significant effect of the make-up to come thru. @poster who talked about cheap hair, well, if ur going to be ‘cementing’ the hair to your boobs with a ton of glue, u’d want something you can come at with shears immediately after…lol. Body art???? what a hot hot mess!! maybe w’ed all have been happier if this was just an audio release??? if ur going to be ‘pushing boundaries’, me thinks you should try something qualitative…there’s enough examples from the west! This aint no era for mediocrity….I’m unapologetically Naija, and that never did, or ever will equal mediocrity!!

    Cheap hair, average looking market girl, rubbish and meaningless song, Ajegunles female version of D’angelo etc…. She should have worked more on the song… Rubbish.

  34. Asili

    Why so many flyaways? She couldn’t just slap some conditioner on her weave before the shoot?

    Ndi naija,Naija people,na wa for us oo…..feels like its impossible to please us!

    we are always too slow to show appreciation,gratitude & encouragement even for the slightest effort. instead we are always quick to judge & condemn.
    A Little MORE APPRECIATION don’t hurt nobody…… πŸ™‚ πŸ˜‰

    *singin*…. ”my body my body O, dey do me tini tini….”

    alot of these comments are just spiteful…
    cheap cheap hair…so she should go and prostitute to human hair abi?
    How many average nigerians can afford to buy human hair…hiss…
    Keep ur bloddy opinions to urself…
    appreciate the concept…leave the insults at home
    awon olodo!

  40. silva

    May 15, 2010 at 11:56 pm

    @ iya iseyin, dat was too harsh and unnecessary…

  41. Anya

    May 17, 2010 at 1:20 am

    Some of the criticisms were not constructive at all…c’mon Naija people, there’s hate and there’s constructive criticism. Like what the heck is “…maybe she’s too ugly” or that comment about her synthetic weave? Yea…what’s so witty about stating the obvious? the hair does not look great, yes. But what other productive thing could you possibly come up with it?

    we cannot develop our own culture by tearing it down. Commend the positive like the song is catchy and authentic naija with the pidgin slang infused. Yes, maybe the concept is borrowed from D’angelo’s video. But what is REALLY original these days? EVERYTHING IS RECYCLABLE.

    oh my gosh…i love this site by the minute, Nigerians doing what they do best HATING!!!
    I saw the video for like 2 min and was like oh purlease, waste of my time and AIRTIME, cheap hair or not who gives a toss? clearly not me.
    Yet another one of us trying to be what we are not, its alright if beyonce does it cos her culture accepts it but ours dont,(21st century or not) need i say beyonce is just a dignified prostitute. Banky w ( which i am not a fan of) i reckon is the only one that has good thought out videos…. COME UP WITH SOMETHING ELSE!!

    I didn’t feel the video honestly.. Methinks she was forcing herself to be unduly sexy,and too bad she didn’t win me over at all…. Maybe her next one!

  45. nikky(xoxo)

    May 17, 2010 at 10:59 pm

    Nawa oooooooooooh! ppl free d babe! asin seriously u guys are never satisfied. Personally i like d song and i like d video. Ok yh i agree maybe its a lil too much for Nigerian television but still u ppl shudnt trash d babe like dat. firstly ppl tlkn abt how d babe is ugly; i dnt see anything ugly abt her. There r other female nigerian artists who are not even half as pretty as dis babe is, n puHlease! there’s nothing wrong with her makeup!her makeup is simple n neutral and it blends really well with her skin tone. Compared to all d painting some of our naija sisters do to their faces. Most of them don’t even use d right tone of foundation or powder for their skin to start with not to talk of their lip or eye makeup so pls if ur looking for people with horrible makeup to criticize kindly log on to facebook. Secondly there is nothing wrong with her body! because she doesn’t look hungry or malnourished doesn’t make her or d video any less sexy! u dnt have to be skinny before u can be called sexy. Also pls u ppl calling yaki cheap abeg when did u discover human hair? cos last time i checked it wasn’t a crime to use it..infact some hairstyles can only be done using it. Yes! u guys calling d video boring; pls did any1 strap u to a chair and make u watch it? u might have aswell hissed and moved to d next video. Maybe the remaining minutes “wasted” watching this video would have been used to watch a more interesting one.
    To be honest personally i don’t see anything wrong with this video. We all know there are videos out there with more nudity and explicit content than this and they are aired every time on tv (u can tune to mtv base n oda music channels for visual reference)…its nothing new! The only reason why you ppl have all condemned this video is because she is a Nigerian. All the same sha “Suzie” i gbadun ur jam mehn!…LoL! buh really though nice one..

    P.S ehn Yes oh! I know say i to talk…..but sorry i’m only stating facts.

    May 25, 2010 at 11:12 pm

    I think d song in itself is good. video…boring, body paint…hell no (i think she was sweating and some of it’s running)!

  51. Muna

    May 25, 2010 at 11:15 pm

    and for those saying its OK, maybe we can get a male version sometime? nude guy alone singing and just blurr out the ‘essentials’….

    May 26, 2010 at 12:25 pm

    ees jus’ dere jare!
    daring. mhm.
    not a lot o’guys will be wanting to be taking her home to mama tho.

    song is not bad, nice r&b from a chic-artist in naija (grossly under-supplied here
    we are).
    @nino: hair looks cheap sha, and this IS entertainment. it’s a lux-biz and it’s got to
    fulfil every fantasy.
    check out Ciara’s video “ride”. i blushed. true story. but she looked “perfect”.
    purpose achieved.

    Im sure the video did what they intended: def got ppls attention.
    The video is quite dry…I saw no BODY, all I saw was her back!!!
    everything else was blurred. The Director did a very bad job.
    Plus, what’s the deal with her frizzy ass weave?

  56. Rouge

    June 12, 2010 at 4:39 pm

    I think simply dat being nude both in naija and ova dere is not in anyway tasteful…
    is it dat she’s so sexy or too hot…whats d whole idea?
    breakn new boundaries….is porno a new boundary dat we shld b thinkn of breakn???
    When we do stuff…we should think of what we want our kids to see when they
    switch on the TV??
    r we tryn 2 giv dem d impression dat talent doesn’t matter and being nude is talent
    enuf???
