Watch Lady Donli's Explosive New Video for 'Corner,' Featuring VanJess & The Cavemen
The Nigerian artist tackles many of the issues facing Nigerian women in a fierce new production.
The smooth, highlife-tinged song, contains a bold message that address several of the issues currently facing Nigerian women, including the recent #SexForGrades scandal, which exposed lecturers at various universities who were sexually assaulting their female students. The video, directed by Shaun Kalu, does the same, as it opens with a group of women leading a protest in Nigeria's capital. Later the video shows them taking part in several subversive activities to defeat male perpetrators.
"My vision for the film was to make a melodrama, a Nollywood home video that possesses multiple layers and juxtapositions," said the director in a press release via The Fader. "The most telling, being the intention to show that we (the younger generation) are well aware of societal and cultural issues — especially for women. I'm more than willing to inculcate that into the art," he added.
