Watch Nadia Nakai and Tshego’s Gory Music Video for ‘More Drugs’

Watch Nadia Nakai's new music video for "More Drugs" featuring Tshego.

Nadia Nakai's latest music video is reminiscent of a Quentin Tarantino movie. From the vintage film color scheme and grading to the gory scenes—in one scene, Nadia is literally taking a bloodbath.


In the clip, which was directed by Studio Space Pictures' Alessio Bettocchi and Jiten Ramlal, the South African rapper pulls up in a vintage car which we later find out has a dead body in the boot which she has tasked herself with disposing of.

In the song, Nadia and her collaborator—singer and rapper Tshego—speak of a relationship that went wrong. Tshego sings in the hook:

"We were better when nobody knew us/ Then you started changing when I blew up/ You been getting loose, and now it's screwed up/ Sippin' D'usse while I throw the deuce up"

Nadia raps in the first verse:

"As a man you were meant to protect me/ Why you let these bitches disrespect me?/ Knowing damn well that would affect me/ I let you hit it raw, it could infect me/ I thought I told you not to go embarrass me"

"More Drugs" is the latest single from Nadia Nakai's debut album Nadia Naked, which was released in 2019. Alongside Tshego, the project featured the likes of Cassper Nyovest, Khuli Chana, Stefflon Don and Lady Zamar. Previous singles from Nadia Naked include "Amai," "Naaa Meaan" and "Imma Boss."

Interview

A Candid Conversation With Olamide & Fireboy DML

We talk to the Nigerian stars about the hardest lessons they've learned, best advice they've ever been given and what Nigeria means to them.

Olamide and Fireboy DML have been working together for three years, but the first time they sit down to do an interview together is hours after they arrive in New York City on a promo tour.

It's Fireboy's first time in the Big Apple — and in the US — and the rain that's pouring outside his hotel doesn't hinder his gratitude. "It's such a relief to be here, it's long overdue," he tells OkayAfrica. "I was supposed to be here last year, but Covid stopped that. This is a time to reflect and refresh. It's a reset button for me."

Olamide looks on, smiling assuredly. Since signing Fireboy to his YBNL Nation label in 2018, he's watched the soulful young singer rise to become one of Nigeria's most talked-about artists — from his breakout single, "Jealous," to his debut album Laughter, Tears & Goosebumps, hit collabs with D.Smoke and Cuppy, and his sophomore release, Apollo, last year.

Even while he shares his own latest record, UY Scuti, with the world, Olamide nurtures Fireboy's career with as much care and attention as he does his own, oscillating between his two roles of artist and label exec seamlessly. His 2020 album Carpe Diem is the most streamed album ever by an African rap artist, according to Audiomack, hitting over 140 million streams. When Olamide signed a joint venture with US-based record label and distribution company, Empire, in February last year he did so through his label, bringing Fireboy and any other artist he decides to sign along for the ride, and establishing one of the most noteworthy deals on the continent.

Below, Olamide & Fireboy DML speak to OkayAfrica about their mutual admiration for each other, what makes them get up in the morning and how they switch off.
