Watch Mr Eazi's New Video for 'London Town' Featuring Giggs

Check out Mr Eazi's latest, directed by Meji Alabi.

Last week Mr Eazi dropped two new singles, the afrobeats banger "Overload" and the grime-inspired "London Town" featuring Giggs—today the artist comes through with a vibrant music video for the standout track, directed by Meji Alabi.

The majority of the video takes place in what looks like an empty, smoke-filled underground tube, where Giggs and Mr Eazi perform their verses before hazy, colorful backdrops. It doesn't steer too far from the typical afrobeats music video equation, but the uniqueness of the Da Beatfreakz-produced track makes up for it.


Mr Eazi is readying the release of his upcoming Life is Eazi, Vol. 2 - Lagos To London, and we're looking forward to it. For now, check out the music video for "London Town" below.
