Mr Eazi, Davido and grammy-nominated Nigerian singer Kah-Lo link up with U.K. producer, Riton, in the new music video for "Money."

With "Money" the grammy-nominated producer—who's previously worked with Mark Ronson and DJ Mehdi—takes a journey into the world of afrobeats and brings some of the genre's biggest names along with him.

The Lagos-shot music video sees Riton, Mr Eazi and Kah-Lo taking a ride through the city and hanging with locals before heading to a party. Davido joins in remotely from a TV Screen.

“It was my first time in Lagos and I was super psyched to go there as I’ve been a fan of Afrobeat for so long," the producer told The FADER. "It’s a wild experience shooting on the streets of Lagos. We really wanted to capture as much of the life out there without it looking like an Instagram mood story. The video reflects the message of the track, that the best things in life are free."
