Watch Davido's New Music Video for 'D&G' Featuring Summer Walker

Davido, Summer Walker and London On Da Track serve a luxe aesthetic in the new visuals for 'D&G'.

Davido recently dropped the music video for "D&G". The track features on his A Good Time album which he released at the end of last year. The Nigerian superstar recruits Summer Walker and London On Da Track to serve an insanely luxe aesthetic for the vibrant visuals. Davido has also pledged to support the Dolce & Gabbana and Humanitas Together for Coronavirus Research Fund with the music video in order to support relief efforts amid the COVID-19 outbreak.


The music video for "D&G" sees the trio completely decked out in the luxurious Italian brand, Dolce & Gabbana. The use of bold and vibrant colors throughout is intentional on the part of the talented visuals collaborator, DAPS. There's no doubt that the visuals and the track play seamlessly off of each other to create a quality production.

The music video was shot while Davido was still in Los Angeles as part of his North American tour just a few months ago. However, he had to subsequently postpone the last leg of the tour due to the coronavirus outbreak.

His fiancé, Chioma Rowland, recently tested positive for the coronavirus but is now reportedly in the clear following a 23-day recovery in self-isolation.

In the artist's home country of Nigeria, there are now a total of 981 confirmed coronavirus cases and at least 31 deaths with several states having gone on 14-day lockdowns as part of efforts to curb the spread of the outbreak.

Kayode Kasum’s Quarantine Watchlist

From 'Wives on Strike' to 'Goodwill Hunting' here's what the Nigerian filmmaker is watching while stuck at home in Lagos.

Kayode Kasum, like most filmmakers, has been stagnated by the coronavirus pandemic. The director behind the blockbuster Sugar Rush and the critically acclaimed Oga Bolaji was working on the post-production of his upcoming movies, The Fate of Alakada: Party Planner and Kambili—a collaboration between FilmOne Entertainment and Chinese Huahua Media— when the Nigerian government announced the lockdown order.

While post-production on Alakada has concluded, the stay-at-home orders have delayed work on Kambili. "Since the team cannot meet at a single point, we are moving hard drives left and right," he says to me over the phone from his home in Lagos. "It is a challenge, but the beautiful thing about a challenge is, when you make it work, it is fulfilling."

Kasum has turned to books and films for an escape from the unpleasant realities of the pandemic. "I have been reading Elnathan's books: Born on a Tuesday and Becoming Nigeria," he tells me. "I have also been reading film directing books, Directing Actors by Judith Weston." However, Kasum longs for the movies. "I miss going to the cinemas; I miss that experience," he says. "There are times during this pandemic that I'm like 'na wa o, I wish I can go to the cinema.'"

Below are five films he recommends you watch during this pandemic.
