This Animated Nigerian Music Video Is A Must-Watch

Olamide's new video for "Love No Go Die" is the perfect meeting of Nigerian music and 3D animation.

While the internet still buzzes to his new single, "Wo!!," Olamide has dropped another video for his latest joint, "Love No Go Die."


The video, which was produced by the YBNL Toons, begins with Olamide's 3D avatar, in his signature black shades, lovingly staring at a girl on a hospital bed.

The segment then cuts to better times—a flashback of the two animated characters playing video games. Their gaming session soon escalates as they start getting more intimate, while a larger-than-life portrait of Olamide hanging in the background looks on. There are levels to this thing.

As they're both asleep in bed,  Olamide's love interest receives an enigmatic text asking her to report to headquarters. She then gears up in full super spy attire and disappears into the night.  Olamide wakes up disoriented, to an empty bed.

He heads to the studio but can't concentrate, his mind replaying the times they were goofing off in the studio together.  He suddenly receives a text and storms out of the studio but not before playing a few keys on his synth.

Olamide suits up in a white suit jacket and black pants—because if you have to rescue the girl of your dream you might as well do it in style, right?

He pulls up to what appears to be a club in his orange sports car and, after negotiating entrance with the bouncer, starts playing poker with a local gangster.

In the midst of it, he dramatically drops his cards, dodges all the body guard, pulls a gun on the gangster and walks out with the girl of his dreams.

All-in-all this is a must-see meeting of animation and Nigerian pop music.
