Phyno Teams Up With Flavour In 'Authe'

Watch Phyno and Flavour's video for their joint single "Authe."

"Man of the Year" Phyno just dropped the visuals for his latest single “Authe.” The feel-good track off his debut album No Guts No Glory, gets an assist from highlife darling Flavour as the pair shift seamlessly between Igbo and English, trading verses about the objects of their affection and praising their good taste. Lyrically, the track is a departure from Phyno's recent “O Set,” a collaboration with P-Square in which they brag about wealth and lament the envy that comes with it. Lavishness has been a feature in many of director Clarence Peter’s videos and this one continues that trend showing Phyno and Flavour living it up alongside several companions in spas and hotels. For more from Phyno check out his hard-hitting anthem "Alobam." Watch the video for "Authe" below.
