BN Video Premiere: D’banj Feat. Seyi Shay, Vector, Phyno + More – “Raise Your Glasses (2013 Hennessy Artistry)”



Vector, Seyi Shay & D'banj - December 2013 - BellaNaijaMusic - BellaNaija

It’s the festive season, so you are going to be raising a lot of glasses in the air.

D’banj was the headlining act for the 2013 Hennessy Artistry event. And of course, BANGALEE had to record a fun track for the brand.

Titled “Raise Your Glasses”, the music superstar featured other buzzed-about Nigerian artistes including Seyi Shay, Vector, Sean Tizzle, Phyno and Pucado.

MattMax directed the video.

    I read the (negative) comments then tried the song. It’s ok. Nice at the beginning, really nice at the end, harsh sounds in between. The electro voice thing doesn’t sound great, better when it’s the natural DBanj voice. That’s my main criticism, the harsh autotuning sometimes.
    For the person that criticized 1:40, lol. It was sort of a twitchy moment.
    For the person that said, is it an ad, yep, I guess it is.
    For the person that said terrible video, it’s not all bad, it’s kinda cool I think.
    In general, these days it’s like DBanj missed a step, trying to find his feet again after walking away from the Naija music scene for a while, but he still has cred and swag, so maybe soon enough.

    the beat of the song is not bad,have to admit.but i expected more from hennessy.and dbanj was not really “singing” the song,i.e it was obvious it was a mime.unlike his normal vids where he pours his soul in delivering the lyrics and the song,some of the scenes were repeated in an obvious manner…and yes,i agree ,Seyi shay also made me really uncomfortable.
