Ghanaian Duo Steloo And Yaw P Make A Bold 'Fashion Statement' With Their New Video

Accra House artists Steloo and Yaw P share the colorful and stylish new music video for their expressive single "Fashion Statement."

Ghanaian electronic collaborators Steloo and Yaw P have released the vibrant new music video for "Fashion Statement," their Accra house single that celebrates individuality, encouraging listeners to use fashion as a form of self-expression rather than trying to blend in or follow trends. As Yaw P tells Accra Dot Alt, "the statement is a matter of liberation from a standard way of life embedded in our minds. This song and video just goes to show how we have decided to debunk the rules and forge our own path in music, fashion and art."

The pair certainly succeed in making a statement of their own in the Mantse Aryeequaye-directed video, which sees them shopping for colorful threads in Ghana's Makola Market, snapping selfies, and flashing their nifty garb throughout the city. They're joined by performance art collective Go Lokal, who can be seen rocking crafty, avant-garde ensembles including blazers embellished with CDs and old computer motherboards, as well as masks made out of recycled plastic containers. The clip ends with an apt quote from Steloo urging viewers to "make a statement with your own masterpiece of fashion." Check out the visuals for "Fashion Statement" below.

Tems Is Just Doing Her Thang In New Music Video 'Crazy Tings'

The Nigerian songstress is hell bent on taking over your summer playlist and it's getting harder to resist.

It has been a fantastic year for Tems. The Nigerian singer, producer, and songwriter achieved a platinum record for eternal banger Essence, her collaboration with fellow Nigerian superstar Wizkid, an MTV EMA nomination for Best African Artist, a billion worldwide video views, and over 350 million audio streams. Not to mention featuring on Canadian rapper Drake's blowout album Certified Lover Boy, the singer has also sold out every show she's booked.

The release of Tems's sophomore EP If Orange Was a Place solidified her place amongst the greats and it was received with gusto by fans and international audiences. A month after the release the Afrobeats singer has graced fans with a sultry music video to go along with equally as tantalizing lead single Crazy Tings. Conceptualized by the multitalented Tems, and directed by UAX, the music video follows a sensual Tems as she sings about needing space from a lying partner.

International audiences continue to rave over the songstress, with Tems delivering an impressive US TV debut on late-night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live! this month. Essence continues to top international charts. While becoming the official song of the summer, the track peaked on the Billboard 100 Top 10, becoming the most Shazamed song in the United States and was remixed by Canadian musical heavyweight Justin Bieber, becoming the first song written by Nigerian artists to hit No.1 on Urban Radio.

Tems has been producing consistent hits since her debut in September 2020, and a year later, the singer's immense talent is securing her reputation as a world-class superstar.
