Watch the Lovable Music Video for Mr Eazi's 'Surrender,' Featuring Simi

So cute.

Mr Eazi shares the music video for the Simi-assisted single "Surrender," from his latest mixtape Lagos to London (Vol. 2).

Mr Eazi released his documentary Lagos to London about the evolution of afrobeats just last week. Check it out here if you haven't already, and watch the music video for "Surrender" down below.
