Temi DollFace's 'Beep Beep' Video Is a Self-Love Anthem Set in a 1930s Cabaret

Temi DollFace's newest music video for “Beep Beep” is filled with extravagance, bright lights and bubble-gum vocals.

Temi DollFace returns with the music video for her newest single “Beep Beep,” premiering here with Okayafrica today.


The Nigerian singer, whose been consistently dropping waves of genre-bending pop songs and striking music videos, takes viewers back in time to a 1930s cabaret club in her latest visuals.

Dancing amidst a cast of dancers, Temi proudly sings her self-love anthem, in a video filled with extravagance, bright lights and bubble-gum vocals.

The video, which was directed by James Slater, can be added to Temi’s growing repertoire. It follows the visuals for "School Your Face," a tribute to her grandmother for Women's History Month.

“I stand for something different, outside of the box,” Temi DollFace has mentioned in an interview with Okayafrica about her influences, musical interests and identity.

“Beep Beep” delivers just that.

What started as the twitter hashtag #EndSARS has grown into a nationwide youth revolution led by the people.
