Timi Dakolo (BTS)Timi Dakolo has teamed up with Clarence Peters for the video of his romantic hit “Iyawo Mi“.

The 1970s inspired video was shot in Ogun State, Nigeria with a vintage Mercedes Benz, decade appropriate costumes and other props.

The video shows the journey of a newlywed couple; played by Timi Dakolo and his wife, Busola through good and difficult times.

“I’m really proud of this video,” says Timi Dakolo. “I have always wanted to do a vintage video that was fun and features my wife.”Iyawo Mi” was inspired by her so it was just right that she played a part in it. We had an awesome time.”

“Iyawo Mi” is the lead single for Timi’s forthcoming album – Love and Consequences.

    Great song…. creative storyline…. liked the fact that Timi featured his wife in it.. Would have wanted a definite dance routine in the video. Big ups!

    I love the video, however I find a problem with the long weave. That did not blend in with the concept.

    Beautiful song, vieeo concept, story…love it all….. only issue was with the wardrobe…..whatever year they were trying to capture surely had tailors to fit his suit, and probably hadn’t worked th3ir way to brazillian weaves….. cute story still.

    Nah this is what I call genuine love not all ‘these’ people pushing down their love by fire by force through my throat. I know all must not realize a video or a song but when we see something natural and real we will know and not just for the camera.

    I’m a very big fan of these two. Well, it’s far fetched to look at two people via pictures and captions and say you are a big fan of their love life. But these ones ? I have always been a fan and the love I have for the two of them keeps increasing, so you can imagine the excitement on my face watching this video. J’adore!
