Watch Starboy's Terri in His New Music Video 'On Me'

This vibrant and colorful music video is definitely a winner.

Wizkid's "Soco" was no doubt a major hit and kicked off the music career of its standout feature, Terri. The latest signee to Wizkid's Starboy crew, the young musician looks set to continue delivering hits that showcase his immense talent. His latest music video for "On Me", proves just that.


The music video follows a straightforward story line. At the start of it, Terri is being swarmed by excited fans as he leaves his house. Whilst he's in the midst of taking selfies and dishing out his autograph, he spots a young beautiful woman walking by and is immediately enamored with her. Sure enough, as the music video progresses, Terri tries to win her love and towards the end, he succeeds in doing just that.

The new music video comes just days after Terri dropped the "On Me" track which was produced by Quebeat. Terri, who also released "Shuu" and "Same You" late last year and earlier this month respectively, couldn't be doing Wizkid more proud as he seems determined to follow in the music giant's footsteps.

The David Anthony-directed visual explores the use of vibrant and contrasting colors from the backgrounds to the clothes worn by Terri and a number of his dancers.

Interview: Focalistic’s Blend of Hip-Hop and Amapiano Is Working

A few weeks before Focalistic's hit single "Ke Star" is announced to have gone gold (it has since gone platinum), a large group of school kids gather around the driver seat of the rapper's sporty BMW. "I realised that people really love him during the shoot of the 'Ke Star' music video," a passer-by says. "It was wild."

Just like today. The same group, which has now grown bigger, waits outside the spot where Focalistic will sit down for an interview. They each want a picture with one of the country's most promising rappers. They have to wait until he's done answering our questions. Asked if he enjoys being mobbed by fans, he says, "It's not like I like it. But it's something you get used to and you understand it. It's love, it's never to irritate."
