Bad Boy Timz's Drops New Music Video for "Don't Go".

Watch Bad Boy Timz's New Music Video for "Don't Go"

The up-and-coming Nigerian artist finds himself in a complicated relationship in these hazy visuals.

Bad Boy Timz has recently dropped the new visuals for his 2019 hit song "Don't Go" which features Anonymous.

The track appeared on his debut 2019 EP titled TIMZ which was an expository project that not only showcased his artistry, but also cemented his claim to being part of the new African sound.


Listen to "Don't Go" on Apple Music and Spotify.

Directed by NAYA, the music video sees Bad Boy Timz fighting it out with his supposed love interest. Completely distracted by his phone, the artist falls victim to being drugged by his love interest who then goes on to (wait for it) pull out a gun on him just a few scenes later. Talk about a proper "situationship". Naturally, Bad Boy Timz then makes numerous attempts to serenade her and win her trust back. However, things remain on shaky ground for the two lovers.

The music video is a straightforward one with hazy and soft tones in the background which give it an overall muted effect.

Bad Boy Timz shows no signs of slowing down and is determined to keep putting out musical gems for his growing fanbase. Last year saw him drop the colourful and vibrant island-style music video for his debut single "Check and Balance".

Reekado Banks Recalls The Carnage of The #EndSARS Protests In Single 'Ozumba Mbadiwe'

The Nigerian singer pays his respects to those lost during last year's #EndSARS protests.

Nigerian singer and songwriter Reekado Banks is back with a track that is as socially important as it is a banger. It seems fitting for the singer's first solo release of the year to be a tribute to his fellow countrypeople fighting for a country that they all wish to live in. The 27-year-old Afrobeats crooner has returned with endearing track 'Ozumba Mbadiwe', honoring the one-year anniversary of the #EndSARS protests that saw the Nigerian government authorize an onslaught of attacks on Nigerian citizens for their anti-government demonstrations.

The protests took the world by storm, additionally because the Nigerian government insists that none of the police brutality happened. In an attempt to gaslight the globe, Nigerian officials have come out to hoards to deny any and all accusations of unlawfully killing peaceful protesters. Banks mentions the absurd denials in the track, singing "October 20, 2020 something happened with the government, they think say we forget," in the second verse. Reekado's reflective lyrics blend smoothly and are supported by the upbeat, effortless Afrobeat rhythm.

In another reflective shoutout to his home, 'Ozumba Mbadiwe' is named after a popular expressway on Lagos Island that leads to the infamous Lekki Toll Gate where protesters were shot at, traumatized, and murdered. Although packed with conscious references, the P.Priime produced track is a perfect amalgamation of the talents that Reekado Banks has to offer; a wispy opening verse, a hook to kill, and an ethereal aura to mark this as a song as a hit. On "Ozumba Mbadiwe," all the elements align for Reekado's signature unsinkable sound to take flight.
