Watch Ycee's New Music Video For 'Vacancy'

The Nigerian artist goes in over a house beat in this new TG Omori-directed video for "Vacancy."

Ycee comes through with the new music video for "Vacancy," one of the highlight tracks from his debut album, Ycee Vs Zaheer.

"Vacancy" follows the Nigerian artist as he delivers smooth vocal melodies and rhymes over a house-influenced beat.

The new clip for "Vacancy" was directed by TG Omori, the young director breathing new life into Nigerian music videos known for his previous work on "Am I A Yahoo Boy," "Agege" and others.

The new video features an at times miniature-sized Ycee and DJ T Garbs as his counterpart and object of affection.

The album Ycee Vs Zaheer presents a dual picture and juxtaposition of the Nigerian act as a rapper and a singer. "It's Ycee vs. Zaheer because I'm my only worthy opponent," he mentions.

The 15-song debut album features appearances from Davido, Phyno, Niniola, Ms Banks, Boj and Dabo Tuburna.
