Watch Shaydee and Blanche Bailly's New Music Video for 'Mon Bebe'

Shaydee and Francophone artist Blanche Bailly drop the visuals for their standout collaboration 'Mon Bebe'.

Nigerian artist Shaydee has just dropped the new music video to his "Mon Bebe" track.

The song, which features Francophone artist Blanche Bailly, was arguably the standout track on Shaydee's 2019 project titled Shaydee Bizness, Vol. 1.


"Mon Bebe" is a classic uptempo Afrobeats number with the right amount of bounce to it. The track appears on the Nigerian singer's second album Shaydee Bizness, Vol. 1. which was the follow-up to his 2016 debut effort titled Rhythm & Lifea 20-track project which features Wizkid, Burna Boy, Phyno, 2Baba, Iyanya and several other artists.

The music video, which was directed by Adasa Cookey, sees the duo as each other's love interests and provocatively displays the affection they have for one another.

Shaydee came onto the music scene after he signed on with Banky W's record label Empire Mate Entertainment (EME) back in 2012 alongside Wizkid and Skales. He then went on to part ways with the label in 2017 amid speculation that he'd somehow fallen out with Banky W.

However, the artist was quick to address the rumours at the time saying, "I think I was the only one that left without any story. I think people were just looking for drama and they couldn't find any with me." He added that, "I know how media works and I like my reputation to be good without blemish. I don't have time for all that lies. We're all trying to make money, so everyone is cool."

Since leaving EME, Shaydee has been patiently adding to his growing and impressive discography. He's released a number of bangers including "Badman", "Make Sense" and "Hold Me Tight".

Tems Is Just Doing Her Thang In New Music Video 'Crazy Tings'

The Nigerian songstress is hell bent on taking over your summer playlist and it's getting harder to resist.

It has been a fantastic year for Tems. The Nigerian singer, producer, and songwriter achieved a platinum record for eternal banger Essence, her collaboration with fellow Nigerian superstar Wizkid, an MTV EMA nomination for Best African Artist, a billion worldwide video views, and over 350 million audio streams. Not to mention featuring on Canadian rapper Drake's blowout album Certified Lover Boy, the singer has also sold out every show she's booked.

The release of Tems's sophomore EP If Orange Was a Place solidified her place amongst the greats and it was received with gusto by fans and international audiences. A month after the release the Afrobeats singer has graced fans with a sultry music video to go along with equally as tantalizing lead single Crazy Tings. Conceptualized by the multitalented Tems, and directed by UAX, the music video follows a sensual Tems as she sings about needing space from a lying partner.

International audiences continue to rave over the songstress, with Tems delivering an impressive US TV debut on late-night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live! this month. Essence continues to top international charts. While becoming the official song of the summer, the track peaked on the Billboard 100 Top 10, becoming the most Shazamed song in the United States and was remixed by Canadian musical heavyweight Justin Bieber, becoming the first song written by Nigerian artists to hit No.1 on Urban Radio.

Tems has been producing consistent hits since her debut in September 2020, and a year later, the singer's immense talent is securing her reputation as a world-class superstar.
