The new <strong>Patrick Ellis</strong>-directed video follows Iyanya and Diamond are they chill poolside at a mansion with women, daiquiris and white pants.

I was singing all those songs, all that Frank Sinatra, Opera and stuff, so I am just ready to do anything right now."</p><p><div class="preroll-video"></div><ora-player></ora-player></p><p>Check out Iyanya and Diamond Platnumz' video for the <strong>Mr. Chidoo</strong>-produced "Nakupenda" below.</p><p><span style="display:block;position:relative;padding-top:56.25%;" class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="8734585a81538c697d9140513d9b9ec6"><iframe type="lazy-iframe" data-runner-src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/GnH5_0qAcRM?rel=0" width="100%" height="auto" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" style="position:absolute;top:0;left:0;width:100%;height:100%;"></iframe></span></p>
