    Nice video.. she has flawless skin too
    Sesan and clarence peters are the leading video directors in Nigeria for now ! The other “female director” should at least take some advice from them on how to make videos of international standard!

    You can tell this video was shut on a tight budget but I still love it. the last scene wasn’t needed though looked too much like a nollywod movie.is that zizi guy one of those nigerian lebanese cause he is fine! :-*
    Chidinma looks great nonetheless and this is my favorite song by her. This song has so much potential wish it could have really told us the true love story. But yeah…Chidinma rocks!!!

    Loved the vid!!!
    But dang! That Zizu guy is sooooooo cute to the infinite. If I was married to him, I would just stay up all night admiring God’s creation. Plz let me go dream this to reality…(*daydreaming mode*)

    Love the song and video. But the nails were a little disturbing. My eyes were following it everywhere.

  33. eazzie

    May 24, 2011 at 2:32 pm

    Ok! am forced to see something dysfunctional about all these comments i have been reading. are u guys serious like for real???? first i hear jennifer hudson? are u kidding me??? jennifer whaaat??!! please my very honest opinion: the video was beautifully pieced, the chemistry between them was fab, her dress was gorgeous, her cleaves well presented and good to look at (speaking for the guys), lovely hair and makeup and her smile is to die for but the song…. Dry!!! i would definately skip this song if it came up on the radio while driving.
    Hold it before u start to bite…i have seen chidynma perform and became a fan but if na by this song hmm, hmmm, hmmm(waving one finger). Oya bite! Am out.

    May 24, 2011 at 3:45 pm

    Beautiful video with some fresh people! lol. Great vocals, great production quality but I think better expression of emotions will do. And voice dint sync in some places. Video was a bit too long but generally, I love!!! Good job! Great start!

  35. rosebud

    May 24, 2011 at 4:53 pm

    dont like the video match with the song especially the end…song is just ok…nice voice tho

  36. judith adaeze

    May 24, 2011 at 5:16 pm

    great vocals, nice lyrics,cld pass as nigga JENNIFER HUDSON.BUT i expected more frm SESAN the video concept wasnt strong enough to pass the power and d strength of this great song.the ending clip was too poor,the suspence? noooooooo way!!!! didnt feel it one bit

  37. ojaybaby

    May 24, 2011 at 5:40 pm

    d video is okay its not great,i fell it didnt portray the power of the song and she needs to work on producing more emotions but she has maaad vocals damn,when she went so high i was like waaaaat! damn ndi igbo,we are rocking it! jisie n’ike o

    May 24, 2011 at 5:52 pm

    now my thoughts,
    1. blood on victim , then suddenly it disappears.
    2. bad vocals i know cause am a voice coach. (went off key more than once)
    3.the lyrics had like five songs in one it didnt tell any story.
    4. her nails and boobs were all over
    5.was she talking or singing
    6. accident scene no body not even the victim from the other car.
    7. her driver brings her and sits in the car.
    8. his pics dissapers from the photos then he lives (haba)

    seasan go and watch bez’s video

      thanks jare….

    • Purpeliecious Babe

      May 24, 2011 at 9:34 pm

      I agree…. the concept could have been more creative and felt… I had no connection WITH IT…

      This is my idea, she should have been wearing a black dress at the start not shimmering blue but a dazzling black dress to make the story believeable….and appear with black shorts eyes, showing she had been crying… Keeps us guessing what with the tears, middle of the video, show us a picture of them together on holiday, or having a fanstastic time… and maybe he disappears… She just carries on singing taking the audience on a story and maybe towards the end of vid. Show her living or getting through the situation and appearing in the light shots with nice shimmering blue dress no cleavage… why: it takes away the purpose of a mourning lady in love..

      I didnt get the story line whether the guy survived or not… nothing was believeable… I just didnt feel any connection… But well done Chi… nice voice and u can only keep going places and ur gap is what makes even more unique..Gorgeous face too… @ Video director creativity comes in different dimensions make it unique…

      I know…how come the blood and injuries kept dissapearing from his head!!Abi na d concept be that

    • bimbo

      May 25, 2011 at 6:42 pm

      i agree with some of your critic but saying…you are a voice coach and she went off key more than once..hahahahaha, joke of the day, was she was talking or singing…she was doing both… and how was her boobs and nails all over o_o?

    • Thelma

      October 12, 2011 at 7:59 pm

    hope its same video im watching….played out accident concept, nuthing new….watched it again n its same opinion..average..but is she the Chidinma that won MTN Project Fame West Africa.. maybe she added so much weight…just asking sha..not feeling her

    nice song but d video no get connection with d song,powerful voice

  43. nich

    May 24, 2011 at 9:12 pm

    she tried….but square records by p-square would have done more justice….she should have shot the video in the united states……this song was supposed to be the song of the year….but waje has just stolen the show….by doing a great video in sounth africa……..

    ….nigeria is too dry for such a video….it is only p-square that can shoot in nigeria and it still meets international standard becos….all their videos are in 35mm camera……

    …..waje was inspired by p-saure to shoot amazing videos…i wish chidimma approached p-square rather than mo-hits

  44. nich

    May 24, 2011 at 9:20 pm

    the picture quality is good though…..the song is more amazing…….but if she has shot this video in south africa or the united states….

    Mayb na me o but aint feeling this vid @ all… 2/10 in my opinion… Nice vocals as usual (she’s got a great voice) and the song is lovely but this vid….. No no no. @ all. They need acting lessons. Doesn’t even look real. Too many things to point out… Abeg go shoot another vid jo. or don’t release vids. Stick 2 just d song

    awesome video! abeg all those critizing this should go dodge somewhere.

    May 25, 2011 at 12:26 am

    the video is okay..like videos are for promotion purposes and this song has enough publicity already…i mean why make a crappy video to an amazing song just spoils everything…no denying that her vocals are awesomeee!…but this video was really unnecessary especially since it didnt convey the message of the song..

  53. NNENNE

    May 25, 2011 at 12:32 am

    Nice one but don’t like the sad end in the video. I was thinking it would be a nice wedding song.Why the tragedy?

    Omoh….see the passionate comments oh…Pls Chydima if your reading these you know what they say “any press is good press” and with all these comments (2 pages worth oh), it have be for you (Gbagun!) You looked awesome in the video, and the quality was great but like a lot of people said, the story telling (video wise) was a tad off.

    It’s your 1st of many videos I can tell, but please do some comparing and contrasting yourself, you should be your own biggest critic. If you listen to Jennifer Hudson or Adele right after your tracks what do you feel?

    Keep up the hard work and aim high hun.

    Good make-up, good picture quality, but voice off…. some points, and concept hmmmm……who was driving d other car? Who informed her bout the accident and left Obimmo on the road for the wife? And shouldn’t one naturally try lifting the dude to d closest hospital ,drag him, fire prayers,something…not cry.

    May 25, 2011 at 1:57 pm

    Wow, there’s a lot of positive and yet negative sides to both the video as well as the song. Overall I think it was a good attempt, although the lyrics were quite poor and didn’t really engage in the audience. Firstly, I think she needs to write better songs to encapture her listeners as well as audience and secondly she needs to add more empathy in her videos. Maybe if the song actually meant something we as the audience would be able to see this through her video. It felt as if she was being paid to play a part she had absolutely no clue what was about. Yes, her voice is good but I believe it still needs some developing. Comparing her to Jennifer Hudson is a big leap which I feel she isn’t capable of jumping yet. She is possibly the best in Nigeria (vocally) out of a bad bunch, although Tiwa Savage is slightly more vocally advanced. Having said that, I still think Chidynma has some potential and with more work she has a lot in store for her Nigerian as well as worldwide fans.

      someone made comment earlier that he should join Nollywood. Join that Nollywood for what? so he can be playing crappy roles and doing sex scenes? some months back someone somewhere (i think youtube) said the light skinned guy in Bracket was cute and should start doing Nollywood movies. like WTF is that? are some people only interested in seeing light skinned guys play roles in Nollywood movies? I’m sorry, but there is a shortage of fine dark skinned men in Nollywood. Desmond Elliott is old and his time has passed, RMD don run to politics, and Jim Iyke (for those who ever thought he was cute) is state, Bob Manuel don old now! lol. the only people carrying it are Joseph Benjamin and Ghanaian actor John Dumelo. other than that? abeg! what is the obsession with yellow guys? personally, i feel there should be a good mixture.
      sorry, my rant. lol

    I don’t understand what I just watched. She is so beautiful though.
    You can tell she has a nice voice but her singing is the problem. I think she needs to work on her singing technique.
    I am no producer/ director but if she wanted to look glamorous (blue sequin dress and all), she could have been in a scene where it applied. For me, standing idly in a dark background looking glamorous and singing a sad song do not apply.

    May 26, 2011 at 6:28 am

    Luv her and luv the song…this girl is truely devoted to her art. The video might not be the greatest (the end was sooo corny)…but no one shud say her voice doesnt have the “IT” factor…how much more “IT” do u need in her voice. She is FANTABOLOUS!!! LUV HER!!!

  63. Dont Worry..

    May 26, 2011 at 7:07 am

    No Offense But I Could Have Done Way Better (Vocal Wise)..The Vid Was Mediocre…I Only Liked The Chorus Of The Song…But Chidinma Is a Very Beautiful Girl

  64. tosin o

    May 26, 2011 at 8:57 am

    nice “music” (yeah music not song), she has potential but on this one a few -ves, she was lipsinging…and it was way too obvious (thre me off)…n yeah HORRIBLE VIDEO CONCEPT!!! Sorry

    1st of all the song is wack, 2nd of all, he got in an accident and while the car didn’t capsize he somehow fell out of the car :s… He didn’t pick up the phone right? so I ‘m guessing she stumbled upon him… Azeeza your a hot stuvvs sha, Chydnma same goes to you but please use this video for a different song

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Get some acting lessons. The song and voice are great but the acting is horrible …ughh.
