Omawumi's Warri Homecoming In The 'Megbele' Video

Nigerian vocalist Omawumi takes us on a tour of her hometown, Warri, Delta State, in the video for 'Megbele.'


Since the release of her sophomore album Lasso of Truth last year, Nigerian powerhouse vocalist Omawumi has stayed busy with a string of hits. On her latest, the self-proclaimed Wonder Woman pays homage to her humble beginnings with the vibrant video for "Megbele" (which is also her surname). The catchy highlife joint comes dedicated to the memory of her late father, Chief Dr. Frank Amirejotitse Megbele. Shot on location in Warri, the visuals offer a behind the scenes look at the life of a hometown girl done good as she celebrates her Itsekiri roots on a homecoming tour through Delta State. Watch Omawumi make stops at her family home, local schools and the royal palace of the Warri dynasty as she reps her city in the video for the E-Kelly-produced number below.
