New Video: Dipo – Be Your Man



BellaNaija selected Dipo for our BNM Red Alert feature in October 2010 and the response from readers was very enthusiastic. Dipo’s track “Be Your Man” got the a big thumbs up from BN readers.
The video for the song has been shot and has just premiered online. The video was filmed in Kaduna State in Northern Nigeria and directed by Toka McBaror.
We totally love the mellow retro vibe of the video – from the wardrobe to the set. Amazing!

    One of my favorite songs of 2010. You’ll catch me singing:
    “i’m OLUWATOSIN I can be your man”

    Complimentary video for an already awesome song, and like @dewowo pointed out… it wasn’t shot in SA. Thank Goodness.

      April 8, 2011 at 8:14 am

      well, if you care to know, the song was released on radio before Asa’s be my man was released, the video has only taken a while to come out. so he didnt copy Asa, it was just a beautifull coincedence.

    This is more of my thing……. very cool for a niche market in nigeria… it can effectively target the older generations too who seems to be lost in the fast moving pace of Nigerian music industry…

    I wana help this guy expand his target market, customer base, brand and music.. I can see him going places….. he is unique…
