Let Olayinka Ehi's 'Jeje' Kick Start Your Week

The Nigerian-born singer comes through with a dance video for her addictive single.

Olayinka Ehi is a Nigerian-born, New York-based afro soul singer who we've previously covered for her beautiful take on Nina Simone.

Earlier this year, she dropped the 4-song Story EP which showcases her explorations on the topics of love and culture.

"Jeje," one of the highlights off that EP, is a solid track carried by the singer's soulful vocals and some addictive beat work. Though relatively short, it packs a serious afrobeats dance punch in its 2-minute duration.


The music video, which was directed by Marcus G, features some smooth dancing from Izzy Odigie.

You can also spot Olayinka's own fashion designs on display in the new clip.
