Runtown & Fekky's 'Unleash' Will Jump Start Your Week

Watch the new music video from the Nigerian Soundgod, featuring cameos from Shaun Ross and Adonis Bosso.

Runtown is back with the new visual for his latest single "Unleash," a collaboration with UK grime act Fekky.

"Unleash" follows Runtown as he laments some of the downsides of the star life. He sings, "too many bags on me, too many girls on me...too many women in my life...don't know if they love me or my money."

The new music video, directed by Isaac Yowman, is a red-tinted affair which also features cameos from models Shaun Ross and Adonis Bosso, as well as help from stylist Ugo Mozie, all of whom Runtown shouted out on his Instagram.
