Nigerian superstar Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde has just stepped things up a notch! Omotola was in South Africa a few weeks ago (during the World Cup) and she shot the second video off her sophomore album which is tentatively titled ‘Me, Myself and Eyes‘.
The video is for the song ‘Missing U‘ and was shot by renowned Nigerian music video director, Bobby Boulders.
‘Missing U’ is an emotional song and tells the story of a partner who disappeared without any explanation. Omotola’s “runaway love” was played by South African male model Chris Du Plessis, who recently won the Heat Magazine “Six Pack of 2010” Award!
There were mixed reactions to Omotola’s debut album but she has taken all the feedback and applied it to this album which promises to be catchy and entertaining with lots of music that listeners can dance to, relate to and singalong to. Omotola is working with Bigsam Media, a Lagos based publicity company and Now Muzik, a management company to help retool and lay claim to a bigger stake in the music industry.
Omotola will host selected guests and friend to an exclusive album listening party on the 24th of September 2010 while on the 26th of September at Fantasy Land in Lagos, a special listening party will be take place for Omotola fans. She will also be flagging off her ‘Give and Let Get’ project, a charity project which will provide platform where her friends and fans can donate gifts which will be distributed to various orphanages.
Judging by these photos, the video is going to be a hot one. We love the emotions that Omotola is conveying with her eyes! Can’t wait! In addition, its great that she is pursuing her passion for music, its commendable that she is acknowledging fan feedback and putting out a better product this time. The video will debut exclusively on BellaNaija.com in a few days. Also, check out Omotola in her new movie “Ije – The Journey” – the movie hits Nigerian cinemas this weekend.
