Watch Jidenna's New Music Video For 'Bambi'

Jidenna premieres his latest music video for "Bambi," from his new album 'The Chief.'

Jidenna's riding high off the release of his debut album The Chief, which dropped last Friday following much anticipation.


The Nigerian-American artist shared the Chief Obi-assisted music video for "The Let Out" just last week, and today, he premieres his latest video for the highlife-inspired, slow-burner "Bambi," a track that sees Jidenna flexing his vocal range atop hazy production.

The new video sees Jidenna chasing his long lost love—played by Nigerian actress Megalyn Echikunwoke—through an empty bottle, and ends with him crashing her wedding.

Check out our premiere "Bambi" above and listen to Jidenna's The Chief  below if, for some reason, you haven't already.
