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.

Nigerian singer Lady Donli, returns with a new song and music video "Corner," a standout from her 2019 album Enjoy Your Life, featuring VanJess and The Cavemen.

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.

"Corner" was one of OkayAfrica's 20 Best Songs of 2019, and is the artist's latest since the release of the "Cash" remix at the end of last year, featuring Davido.
