Ice Prince Gets Romantic In The Visuals For 'Marry You'

Nigerian star Ice Prince courts his potential bride in the romantic music video for "Marry You," off his 'Trash Can' EP.


Nigeria's Ice Prince drops the music video for "Marry You," a DreyBeatz-produced pop tune off his Trash Can EP from earlier this year. The single's romantic visuals follow the Chocolate City Music star as he courts his potential bride from the park to the pool and introduces her to his parents. Ice Prince has had a good year so far, he was spotted taking meetings with Jay Z a few months back and was recently nominated for 'Best Rap Act of the Year' at the Nigeria Entertainment Awards. Watch the Studio Space Pictures visuals for "Marry You" below (Nigerian wedding videos seem to be a theme this week). If you missed it, revisit our Afrobeats At SXSW video with Ice Prince, Sarkodie and R2Bees underneath.

How You Can Help Nigeria’s #EndSARS Protests

We round up some ways you can support the movement and its cause, no matter where you are in the world.

Widespread protests against Nigeria's notorious Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) are becoming more of a revolution. The movement is an outcry from youths demanding a general reform of the country, majorly characterized by poor governance, with a focus on the harassment and assaults committed by SARS. The movement has been raging through the city of Lagos for the past three weeks, as protesters home and abroad have taken to the streets in masses to express their keen dissatisfaction.

Hashtags like #EndSARS, #EndPoliceBrutality, and #EndBadGovernanceInNigeria have brandished across all social media platforms to amplify the voices of the youth people fighting back. These hashtags have, in turn, gained traction with the help of celebrities like singers Rihanna, Demi Lovato, and Beyoncé, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, and many others. Nigerian stars, Falz, Runtown, Tiwa Savage, Davido, Wizkid, Burna Boy, and many more also joined in the movement, as many of them took to the streets with placards.

To date, the peacefully protesting Nigerians' needs have not been met. With said needs not being satisfied as they demand justice for lives lost due to the brutal and corrupt practices of police officers.
