[embed width="560"][/embed]


Nigerian singer/songwriter Bez, whose smooth, soulful voice has graced Okyafrica before, became the first African artist to have a video premiere on BET Inernational when the network aired his video for "That Stupid Song" at the end of January. The track comes off Bez's debut Super Sun LP and features another talented singer in X3M Music artiste Praiz — is it just me or do they both sound like John Legend? The video was shot and directed in Lagos by award winning director Clarence Peters of Capital Dreams Pictures.  It's a great pairing of two of Nigeria's finest young talents in their respective fields.  Check out more from Bez.
