You Need to Watch These New Videos From Nigerian Rapper Nezi Momodu
Check out the new music videos from her mixtape, The Endless Hour.
Momodu just dropped two videos— "Broken" and "The Endless Hour (Outro)"—that feature songs from that new mixtape which was released in June.
Sharing the experiences that have shaped the new project she told OkayAfrica:
"The entire mixtape is an ode to '90s and early 2000s. Making the videos, especially 'Broken,' I wanted something very simple. I'm Nigerian of course, and I also am Muslim, and I wanted something that paid homage to my culture yet [my] still feeling 'empty.' The song is about how life and time almost stands still like a broken clock. I wanted the video to have all that space and void of something that could be whole, but wasn't. I took the time to hand sew each outfit I wore and really make sure it looked exactly how I envisioned. In short, it became a video with these beautiful pieces and still shots that are somewhat fragmented and alone."
"'The Endless Hour (Outro)' has the most rapping in the whole tape, and is the longest song. The video is a cumulation of all the other videos as well as a map of how I've come lyrically. Before I started on the mixtape, I worked on a mural for a couple months which really helped clear my mind. I wanted that to be in there along with the community it represents. It's a restaurant called Catfish Smith on South Lamar in Dallas. Overall it has a sense of summary and I honestly love the nostalgia it gives me, and I wanted to share that with everyone."
The Endless Hour mixtape is available on all streaming services. Listen to it on Soundcloud below and grab it on iTunes.
