Minz Celebrates People of All Shades In the Sensational Video For 'Skin'

The rising Nigerian artist shares the music video for his latest banger.

After a period of silence, Minz returns to the spotlight with his latest single "Skin," a crisp and seductive afro-swing track that appreciates the beautiful skin and figure of all women.

Shot and directed by Mahine Sef in Gabon, the music video is sensational and will have you transfixed while you view it.

"I want everyone seeing this video to feel good about themselves. To know that they are special. The little imperfections that make us insecure about ourselves are actually what make us unique and beautiful," he writes to OkayAfrica on e-mail.

Now 24, Minz excels as a songwriter, producer and singer and it's only a matter of time until the scope of his talent sets him skyrocketing into stardom.

Interview: Wavy The Creator Is Ready to See You Now

The multidisciplinary Nigerian-American artist on tapping into all her creative outlets, creating interesting things, releasing a new single and life during quarantine.

A trip canceled, plans interrupted, projects stalled. It is six months now since Wavy the Creator has had to make a stop at an undisclosed location to go into quarantine and get away from the eye of the pandemic.

The professional recording artist, photographer, writer, fashion artist, designer, and evolving creative has been spending all of this time in a house occupied by other creatives. This situation is ideal. At least for an artist like Wavy who is always in a rapid motion of creating and bringing interesting things to life. The energy around the house is robust enough to tap from and infuse into any of her numerous creative outlets. Sometimes, they also inspire trips into new creative territories. Most recently, for Wavy, are self-taught lessons on a bass guitar.

Wavy's days in this house are not without a pattern, of course. But some of the rituals and personal rules she drew up for herself, like many of us did for internal direction, at the beginning of the pandemic have been rewritten, adjusted, and sometimes ditched altogether. Some days start early and end late. Some find her at her sewing machine fixing up thrift clothes to fit her taste, a skill she picked up to earn extra cash while in college, others find her hard at work in the studio, writing or recording music.
