Naeto C 'Finish Work'

Naeto C drops video for single "Finish Work"


Apparently daddy duties and role as man-of-the-house haven’t stifled the self-acclaimed "only MC with an m.scs" stride as Naeto C serves up the visuals to his absolute inferno of a single “Finish Work” (released under his White Kaftan Gang imprint). As club burners go it's no doubt a scorcher. And, it's nice to see there wasn't too much of a time delay to get the video out since the single's September drop. But that’s where the good news stops.

Shot by rote and feeling like creativity-by-checklist rather than anything out-of-the-box, the video directed by linchpin of the Nigerian video music game Clarence Peters serves up the mandatories in typical fashion– girls shaking god-given adornments check; doper-than-thou posturing supplied by Naeto and producer E-Kelly check; only things missing are the club scene and up close product placement shots of expensive liquor.

But hey, sometimes you don’t really need to do much– or re-invent the wheel (or the reel). As Naeto C himself once rapped “I got nothing to prove.” Visual accompaniment is visual accompaniment and a hot song is a hot song.

It is tempting to make saints out of the departed. The former Zambian struggle hero did many great things. He was, after all, one of the giants of the continent's struggle against colonialism. Ultimately however, he was a human being. And as with all humans, he lived a complicated and colourful life.

Here are six facts you might not have known about him.
