Watch the Video for Wizkid and Chidokeyz's New Song 'Fibadi'

Wizkid joins Chidokeyz on this banger and it's the perfect song to get the weekend started.

A few days ago, Chidokeyz and Wizkid dropped their new joint "Fibadi" produced by BlaqJerzee. Now they're back with the music video for the song and their synergism is wild. The up-and-coming Afropop artist Chidokeyz teamed up with Nigerian royalty Wizkid to deliver a really solid visual.


"Fibadi" is the second single that Chidokeyz has released this year following his "Body" single featuring Ceeza Milli back in January. The rising Nigerian star, who is signed to the relatively new record label BO Entertainment, holds nothing back in this playful visual. He shows that he's not just planning on having a good time in this music game but that he's also planning on being here for a long time and choosing to feature the insanely talented Wizkid on this banger is proof of just that.

Listen to "Fibadi" on Apple Music and Spotify.

Directed by Unlimited L.A, the opening scenes of the music video dart between both Chidokeyz and Wizkid in the company of beautiful women. It then transitions to three masked dancers doing their thing against a backdrop of luminescent lighting. The overall laid-back feel of the visual complements the duo's easy-going verses and catchy hook. While we wouldn't describe the video itself as being extraordinary, what it does show particularly well is the effortless musical chemistry between the two artists.
