Premiere: Watch The Cavemen's Stunning Music Video for 'Adaugo'

The cinematic new visuals from brothers Kingsley and Benjamin Chukwud unfold against the lush backdrop of Lagos, Nigeria.

The Cavemen, hailed as prodigious talents within the thriving Nigerian music landscape, are unveiling the music video for their fan-favorite track "Adaugo."

The captivating "Adaugo" video, directed by Dalia Das and conceptualized by Wavy the Creator, unfolds against lush greenery, skillfully capturing the organic essence and depth of brothers Kingsley and Benjamin Chukwudi's musical prowess. The visuals were filmed in the outskirts of Lagos, Nigeria.

The self-produced and independently released music video for "Adaugo," which is premiering here on OkayAfrica today, paints a story of desire and courting as The Cavemen's Benjamin follows a woman in a striking blue dress from the forest to a small village to a torch-lit cave.

"The inspiration behind the visuals was story-telling. Going all the way back to our childhood days where we would sit down and listen to stories from our parents or elders," The Cavemen explain. "Adaugo is a declaration of true love between two people. It was important to tell this story through a time lapse that visually narrates how love transcends through space and time. It was also essential to have a narrator (Benjamin) as a key element in story-telling."
