New Video: Banky W feat. M.I – Feeling It

BellaNaija.com

Published

 on

A few weeks ago, Banky W and M.I were in South Africa for the Channel O Music Video Awards. While in Johannesburg, the two music stars not only enjoyed the sights and sounds of the city but also filmed a video for Banky W’s track – “Feeling It“.
We got a sneak peek of the video via photos on twitter but now we have the video.

The video was directed by Jonathan “Josh” Clarke and based on what we see in the video, Banky and M.I play the role of 2 gangsters on the run. As usual, Banky beats the odds and gets the girl in the end…

      u guys can be so close minded,must theme always go with the song,when jay z did on to da next one and the ting didnt make sense no one complained,when omawumni was stealing jewellery from bank no one talked…freedom of expression is what it is.

    The hat again? Glasses too? Would be great to see a different look than the stagnant Banky W usual Sheesh! Oh well, Video not doing it for me. Same ol same ol. He should borrow a leaf from his contemporaries who are breaking new grounds. No need to mention names. It’s obvious enough…..

      December 8, 2010 at 8:29 pm

      Darey you mean!!! Anyways the Videos didn’t do much for me..M.I always got it but again Banky show us he’s still not his own person..why copy ur last video? why use d same storyline…becos we bought it @ 1st..hire a team,build a music castle, not a music cage

    this video doesnt make any sense, is like they got confused about the guns and what to do with it. theres no story, d song n video dont make any sense. and what was djinee doing there 🙁

    “Feeling it” is my favorite song off Banky W’s The Experience Album. The video to me did not do the song any justice. I feel Banky did not put in as much effort into the video as much as he did with “Strong Ting”. My two cents !

    Would you be my Rihanna and I will never Chris brown you! why should he say that? Its a nice music with ma man MI but… dont like that Rihanna – Chris Brown point…

    • ko-eazy!

      December 6, 2010 at 7:20 pm

      It means be my gf, I would never lay a finger on you, I don’t understand how you can’t see the humor in that….I don’t think there is anything wrong in saying that. On the other hand, I love love love this song and Banky buh the video is just SILLY! No correlation whatsoever.

    • tami

      December 6, 2010 at 11:29 pm

      I so agree with you….love Banky o…but not feeling that reference at all…it’s all love though..:)

  18. Peperempe

    December 6, 2010 at 5:00 pm

    The song is very smooth, I like it. The video on the other hand is just terrifically random! As a previous poster said, this mata of going to SA to shoot videos is just 199-late!

    Still on topic; what can we do about Banky, his creepy manicured beard and his dated clothes? His constant hat-wearing nko? Everybody don beg am, but he has refused to change his ways. We will have to surrender him and Olisa Adibua to the Lord at the next Shiloh! Okbye.

    • missy~spectacularrr

      December 6, 2010 at 9:03 pm

      about the hat…erm…you see…its is widely rumored that u DONT wanna see the shape of his unadorned head…LOL

    • Peperempe

      December 7, 2010 at 12:52 am

      I thought as much…lol. Okay we will let that one slide, but this Craig David beard and the Teacher Chike clothes gats to go ASAP!

    This must be the concluding part of strong thing(too similar)… i dont see any hard work in this story line i’m afraid… I am still trying to understand the concepe of the video 🙁
    The song is dope and the video quality is nice though but the story is a NO NO from me
    ps *MY OPINION PLS*

    • Karen

      December 6, 2010 at 11:05 pm

      moral of the story feel it in my heart, feel it in my soul…banky and Mi somewhat predictable, the video is good quality.
      guys stop complaining about banky cap, if he feels the need to wear it..let him be

    Nigerians nigerians, y must we slander our own efforts! dont call sum 1s video rubbish jus cos u dont like the concept, its far from nice. Also them being in sa, if they thought ”oh well we r here lets knock a video out” its all well and good! we need to encourage ourselves and not constantly bring each other down if not we wld never move 4ward! please think b4 u comment, lets act civilized for once

    December 6, 2010 at 7:04 pm

    RUBBISH VIDEO, as far as i am concerned its just pure effizey without application of sense….i mean like d south african chick, buh d video no gas anything to do with d song, oh! nice concept with DJINEE as the swat man with an AK or sumthn….nice melody but overall JAGBAJANTIS concept if we must go by the song.

    Banky needs to lose the look! He’s doing such a great job with his music, but somebody please help him out with his wardrobe, abeg.

    Victor and Hugo. The video director should be BANISHED asap! and the girl waited till Banky W finished shooting Abi?

    December 6, 2010 at 11:19 pm

    LOl. The song make sense sha ooo ! But the video, hmmmm !!!!

  41. Oga ju

    December 7, 2010 at 1:51 pm

    The Video try very very SMALL sha but THE WHOLE CONCEPT IS NONSENSE?CRAZY/STUPID. Djinee should buy the next police recruitment form. Banky has copied from everyone even himself (STRONG TIN) must BANKY be a Mafia everytime……Stop watching too much MAFIAN FILMS

    • mariaah

      December 7, 2010 at 4:32 pm

      That’s what happens when you watch “The Godfather” and “Scar face” way too many times. Bet he sees himself as “Tony Montana” saying “say hello to my little friend” haha..

    December 7, 2010 at 5:03 pm

    dear, even in europe they have wat people call critics. Thier job is to criticise and rubish peoples work so its not a nigeria or african mentality abeg. This bankys video does not make sense and people have to tell him dat so he wnt do it again. its as someone started den another person finished it. very confusing

  43. sola

    December 7, 2010 at 7:28 pm

    chei see as pple come finish this guy o 🙁

  44. Kilonsparkles

    December 8, 2010 at 2:37 am

    It’s the best Banky video IMO. Sure it’s long and all, but at least it has a concept. I personally hate when a song has a literal video. Would it be better if he was acting out the words?

    As for the South Africa thing, correct me if I’m wrong, but they shoot it there ‘cos of the camera lense right? I figured that was why they all fly to shoot there.

    I thought Djinee was Desmond Elliot too lol.

    • Chipii

      December 8, 2010 at 2:05 pm

      OK, granted, they shoot in SA for d RED and ARRI cameras but uhn…u say concept? Poorly executed concept that leaves the audience feeling quite let down. Quite dry and empty to be honest. I love the song but the video ? Not 2 much!

  45. oke

    December 8, 2010 at 9:48 am

    lovely song. This is a song that i could dance to with my boo. love the beats. love M.I’s bass voice and Banky’s sexy voice. Nice collabo.

  46. mimi

    December 8, 2010 at 11:34 am

    nice collabo, video was impromptu maybe thats why it didn’t make much sense coz banky was in SA for Channel o awards then decided to shoot the vid. still love the song tho…

    • Chipii

      December 8, 2010 at 2:06 pm

      Well, this’ll teach him not to be spontaneous next time. BAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

  47. Saffroneta

    December 8, 2010 at 12:39 pm

    I think the videos quite nice actually …dnt knw why ppl are complaining that they dnt get the video …if he did it on beach or a club …ppl will still complain well done banky and the short black dude !!!

    Musicians go to shoot videos in SA because, believe it or not, shooting videos in SA actually makes sense. The possibility of power failure (and the need for generators that must constantly be refueled) are slim to none. There is no need to bribe area-boys. The post-production takes place in established studios that run as businesses, not in somebodies house (where the mayguard will tell you “oga is not on seat” and refuse to let you enter). Believe you me, with the expenses involved? The moment Nigeria is able to match the quality our musicians will stay home…. as evidenced by Kemi Adetiba and Clarence Peters.
