Watch DJ Neptune, Mr Eazi and JoeBoy in Music Video for New Track 'Nobody'

The trio draws inspiration from Michael Jackson in the visuals for their new collaboration.

DJ Neptune has just dropped his latest single titled "Nobody" which sees him recruiting Nigerian superstar Mr Eazi and his prodigy JoeBoy.

The track is the second single to be released from his upcoming project The Greatness II [Sounds of Neptune] following the successful debut single "Tomorrow" featuring Victor AD.


"Nobody" is an uptempo number which speaks about young love and the blind devotion that often follows as a result of infatuation. It's a laidback bop with a light bounce to it that makes for some easy listening as DJ Neptune pleads with a certain love interest to give him a chance and nobody else.

Listen to "Nobody" on Apple Music and Spotify.

The music video matches the light-heartedness of the track itself. The trio pays homage to Michael Jackson through choreography that is complete with the late King of Pop's signature aesthetic—glitzy blazers, black shoes with the white socks, gloves and of course the hats. Naturally, the choreography features the infamous crotch-grab, moonwalk, smooth two-stepping and a leg kick here and there.

It's a fun homage to the late Jackson with a hallmark Afrobeats twist to it.

Interview

Adekunle Gold Is Living His Best Life

We speak to the Nigerian star about how marriage and fatherhood have led him to find both newfound happiness and newfound freedom as an artist.

''I'm having the time of my life,'' says Adekunle Gold over a Zoom call while seated in his office in Lagos. ''I'm making songs that are so true to my current energy, my current vibe.'' When I got on the call with the 34-year-old artist on a Wednesday afternoon, the first thing I noticed was his hair tied up in little braids, the second was his wide smile. As we speak, the crooner laughs multiple times but it's his aura that shines through the computer screen, it lets you know better than his words that he's truly having the time of life.

Born Adekunle Kosoko, the popular Nigerian singer got married barely two years ago to fellow artist Simi. Last year, the power couple welcomed their first child. As we talk, Gold points to his journey as a father and a husband as some of the biggest inspirations at the moment not just as far as music goes but as his perspective in life and how he now approaches things.

''My [artistry] has changed a lot because being a father and being a husband has made me grow a lot and more.'' Adekunle Gold tells OkayAfrica. ''It has made me understand life a lot more too. I'm feeling more responsible for people. You know, now I have a kid to raise and I have a wife to support, to be a real man and husband and father for.'' He credits this journey with both his newfound happiness and a newfound freedom as an artist.
