BN Video Premiere: Wizkid – Pakurumo

It goes without saying, that Wizkid is the rave of the moment. Hate him or love him, his 15 minutes won’t stop in a second. EME brings us a new video, this time directed by Clarence Peters. The video features Pasuma, Ali Baba, Tee-A, Funke Akindele and Skales with cameos from Lynxx, Davido, Banky W, Pope Da Hitman, Tiwa Savage, Mo’cheddah and Ice Prince. The video for the song doesn’t start for a bit, but the end of the protracted intro is a tad amusing. All in all, justice is done to the already popular song from the Superstar album.

    I real love it joooooo

  • bill December 11, 2011 at 1:01 am

    abeg wizkid costume is out of place!! he should have also dressed in natives!

    • Oju December 11, 2011 at 8:41 am

      You obviously don’t get the concept of the video.

    • The Kinkster December 11, 2011 at 10:15 am

      Did you miss the part where he ended up at the wrong venue as he was meant to be performing somewhere else entirely?

    • jmayaki December 11, 2011 at 3:40 pm

      he couldnt have , didnt u c the party he was supposed to attend? or u dnt understand the video?

    • Salama December 11, 2011 at 7:13 pm

      You obviously didn’t get the storyline…WizKid was meant to be going to a show but that aproko receptionist at EME mixed up he and Pasuma’s venues.Pasuma ended up at his show and he went to entertain at Funke’s party. What would you think of WizKid if he showed up at a show in native? Lol

    • ……. December 11, 2011 at 9:59 pm

      If you don’t understand the concept of the video….ask, and it will be explained to you.

    • Tosin December 11, 2011 at 9:59 pm

      Hey Bill, I hate to spell it out for you but I will: the plot of the video was such that Wizkid’s booking was mixed up with Pasuma’s, hence, his costume was deliberately “out of place”.
      The business of criticism is for those who pay keen attention to detail. Tread lightly.

    • Mike December 12, 2011 at 9:28 am

      Like you didnt get the concept of the video,he went to the wrong party.Pasuma was meant to be at funke’s party.

  • Ebony’n’Ivory December 11, 2011 at 1:13 am

    Ain’t no party like an Owanmbe party!! We just know how to get down! Oya pakurumo…

  • Darkvixen December 11, 2011 at 1:29 am

    Sobbing, sobbing, I misssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss home. Nice one.

  • honey December 11, 2011 at 1:34 am

    Funke Akindele has finally killed me!!! lmao@nigga raw and whiskey

  • judy December 11, 2011 at 2:05 am

    did they just refer to those girls as trophies?

    • LindsayLohan December 12, 2011 at 9:07 am

      They did oh. Abi you don’t know we Nigerian women are prizes? Prizes for the men to take home after being useless all their lives.

  • Kubs December 11, 2011 at 2:15 am

    Awesome Video

  • sigmund December 11, 2011 at 2:44 am

    Crazy, different and simple storyline very well executed and just so much fun to watch, and the cast and crew were on point, i wonder if the did takes on each scene, cos they all looked relaxed and charmed us viewing pretty well, i doubt if anyone would see this and not smile……….. at least, simple idea and brilliant execution, not to forget, great song too…………..wheezy , i’m sold !!!

  • Demmy December 11, 2011 at 3:37 am

    I watched it yesterday on Soundcity. Funke Akindele is hilarious. I love it.

  • ebi December 11, 2011 at 4:51 am

  • maya December 11, 2011 at 5:11 am

  • niceness December 11, 2011 at 5:43 am

    no offense but nigerian artist need to upgrade their video quality,clarence peters needs to do a better job everything is the same and quality is low but the concept is cool

    • jmayaki December 11, 2011 at 3:34 pm

    Vry stupid senseless video

    • Mayowa December 12, 2011 at 6:24 pm

      Very deplorable and illogical comment. It’s so outrageous how some of you Nigerians grumble about everything. Please, take a seat!

    Lololol. This was fannnnnntastic LOVED IT

  • naijalove December 11, 2011 at 3:39 pm

    @bill, i dont think you understood the concept of the video, his outfit is “misplaced” because the assistant mixed up the bookings therefore he wasnt supposed to be there but still put on a show 🙂

  • Gen Adewale olorundare December 11, 2011 at 4:18 pm

    @niceness, what better or more quality do you want from this video…… why, people like you need to grow and stop critizing nice and good quality work like this.

  • Busola December 11, 2011 at 5:23 pm

    Now this is what a video should look like !!!

  • trickalist December 11, 2011 at 6:20 pm

    ok let’s ask ourselves…why is this the best video? is it cos its filled with familiar faces and the jenifa factor or was there talent in there? lmao @ nigerians and their mediocrity. sorry but the video is just there and the song is just there too. nothing spectacular. y’all saw Jenifa, Banky, Mo Cheddah, Tiwa and its a wrap. pls we need to aim higher and hold ourselves to higher standards. this concept has been done over and over again.

    • T December 12, 2011 at 1:28 pm

      Ask yourself… what have you done lately? who are you in your field? what have you achieved? hiss………. sorry for yourself, nonsense. Obviously the word “concept” means something else to you. Park well jooor!

    • naijalove December 12, 2011 at 6:58 pm

      excuse me “concept has been done already” wheree!!!!!!!……..the critics have come

  • Flygirl December 11, 2011 at 7:41 pm

  • Morenike December 12, 2011 at 8:02 pm

    Great Video, so many errors… Receptionist states the party will be at Wellington Close..When Pasuma arrives it says Wellington Street and at the beginning they write EME “Headquaters” it is is spelled HEADQUARTERS get it together my people..Laziness is a disease..

    • MzWooMe December 12, 2011 at 9:20 pm

      remove the spec in your eye first, it is not they ‘write’ EME, its they “wrote” EME. Antagonistic behavior is a deadly disease……

    • Salama December 12, 2011 at 11:27 pm

      Laziness? How about an honest mistake?

    • tezy December 13, 2011 at 9:48 am

      All u pple that like to criticize good work.. listen well she actually said wellington street and they wrote wellington street too..

  • kinky December 12, 2011 at 9:53 pm

  • ibrahim sunday mayowa December 13, 2011 at 1:10 pm

    It okey for december

  • Debo December 13, 2011 at 1:21 pm

    Question: what does pakurumo mean? Love the story line delivered appropriately by; the receptionistist, who got addresses mixed up, Funke Akindele cos she hosted an “owambe” and was sent a “wassup” or in her words, a “nigga raw”, the elderly lady at the party who was put off by Wizkid at the beginning of his performance. But the rest of it is just jumbled together. There should have been a follow up on Pasumo after he arrived at his own venue and not just to tell us he did well and took home trophies, what was d story behind behind the naughty old man tapping a girl’s bum with his walking stick, she grabbing him at a party with his agbada and then he turns to drinking. And the every every dancing in booths, at an owambe? Durh. Most of the guests were just eye candy and nothing else. but still for cinematography, concept and budget, let’s give them a healthy 60%!

    • trickalist December 13, 2011 at 7:35 pm

      Kpom. that’s my point that i don’t see anything besides a star studded video and comedy delivered by our one and only Jenifa. errrm, how is that talent? msehceeeew! oshi o da

  • kokolette December 13, 2011 at 1:25 pm

    long but nice … dts ugonna designer now kool

  • anonymous December 13, 2011 at 9:44 pm

    Trickalist or whatever you call yourself and Debo please be quiet, give them some credit, they did a job well done, yea minor glitches here and there but for the most part it was good. You guys keep talking about mediocrity, if you feel the video wasn’t good enough how about you go direct it for them since you have all ideas in the world.

  • nok10 December 13, 2011 at 11:21 pm

    Love the song!!! Please we need more original songs like this not the same old crap!

  • Mena Oudha December 14, 2011 at 10:51 am
