Kayswitch x Olamide x Wizkid's 'For Example (Remix)' Video

Nigeria's Kayswitch, Olamide, and Wizkid star in the video for 'For Example (Remix)' from Patrick Elis.


When last Kayswitch and Naija music video director Patrick Elis teamed up it was for the wedding party visuals for "Obimo" with Kayswitch's big brother D'banj. With a new single and video set to arrive later this month, the DB Records champ finally delivers on the visuals for his September 2013 banger "For Example (Remix)." Enlisting none other than Elis to direct, the fiery video shot in Lagos sees Kayswitch joined by his all-star team of collaborators, self-proclaimed Baddest Guy Ever Liveth Olamide and a no nonsense Wizkid. Watch it below and look out for cameos from Omo Akin, L.A.X, Deevee, 2Kriss and Dokta Frabz.
