BN Exclusive: Behind The Scenes Pictures From Chykay’s ‘Drama’ Video Shoot

Published

 on

Our radar glowed a bright (BN) red in May this year, when we focused on Chykay. His debut video (for Drama) was shot in Cape town in July.  The song, on which he featured label-mate: Mo Gevson is his official debut single on Blackbody. The video was directed by Alisha Ludick of LLP productions. It drops next weekend, so watch this space. In the meantime, you can view pictures from the video shoot.

    youre selling to a majorly black continent and your main video attraction is white. 70 percent of the people buying this are going to be nigerians. out of that 60 percent female and youre lead is a white chick becauseee??? nice mate.

      Really looking forward to this video…Chykay is a very talented artist. Although I would have preferred the featured lady to look like the average Nigerian, our music has crossed our boundaries and appeals to other Africans and even non Africans. I love that Chykay has embraced our “diversity”… I’m sure our Asian Nigerians will feel the love ; ) This guy has amazing talent, i love his voice and style.

    @ oh for f#ck sake, and ur point is??? Its people like you who make our industry and artistes look bad. Ure discriminating and you forget or maybe u just don’t know that music does not care bout race,sex or tribe. So when white people use blacks in their videos its ok right? Hiss. And u obviously can’t notice but she’s not white, she’s mixed and obviously has asian blood.

    Chykay keep up the good work and use whtever and whoever u want in ur videos. U hv an amazing voice. Please Bella keep us up to date. Banky W has a new competitor

    @samyrush we’re not saying anything wrong with white or black all people. But in an economic sense u’ll never see caucasians sell to a majority caucasian audience with a black female lead. Ibo no wo n ti n se iru e?
    It does not make sense. Just as big fashion houses like chanel do not use black models (in majority) cos thats not their market. Simple

      exactly..no one gives a hoot about his ethnic preference, but when it comes to selling your sh*t to the world, try and connect to them. ITS SHOWBIZ not “i-must-to-put-white-chick-in-my-video” competition.

    It never ceases to amaze me how bad some of these artists are at marketing. Bella, do they not know the average profile of your readers? No one is saying don’t put average looking foreigners in your videos, but frankly, most of us are not interested.

    this is rubbish! how many times would u see white men with black women as leads in their video! majority of the consumers are black women! PUT A BLACK WOMAN AS THE LEAD IN YOUR VID! dont be a FOOL!

    • Zeliha

      September 6, 2011 at 2:47 pm

      What you just said is the rubbish. And who says white people don’t use girls with black skin as their lead models?? Seriously?? This has nothing to do with d skin colour of his models, if his music is good, he will sell. Pls critisize sensibly

      People try and use beautiful women in their videos to sell the product, sorry I’m white but she’s no beauty. Is that the best he can do, really??..ROFL!!

    Some of you Nigerians, like to focus on silly issues ,as long as the song sounds good and the video is great. that is all that matters not the skin of where the person is from. Kim is a new South African video model, S.african as in” a south african” does it matter if she’s white?. No!. So why will some of you come here forming you would have preferred if she was black.. ie @oh for f#sake and @bims. Does it even matter, Isn’t Music a universal language?. race, language, dance etc .ya’ll should please chill and focus on more important issues.

    Look at the uncle tom chicks commenting sorry Zigler, Zehila, you do not get the point- am sure you may be from his musical camp posing here…as for me, i will not patronise him as he does not care to sell to me…..black african like him crooning to who??? yet his love interest is the status quo white chick- am tired of that rubbish and as such will not spend one kobo of my money on his music……

    ZIGLER do you understand the history of white SOuth AFRICANS in Africa? In South Africa??? It seems that you do not know that white SOuth Africans do not consider themselves as Africans as you and I are….AND YES IT MATTERS THAT SHE’S WHITE….
