Watch the Dazzling Video For Wizkid's 'Fake Love Featuring Duncan Mighty

Starboy comes through with yet another jam.

Wizkid has been consistently churning out jam after jam since the top of the year, and he's back with yet another one.

The singer has dropped the music video for his buzzed about track featuring fellow Naija singer and producer Duncan Mighty, "Fake Love."

The glimmering music video, directed by frequent Wizkid collaborator, Clarence Peters, backs the melodious Killertunes-produced track, with its cool undertones and crystal-clear visuals.


On the nearly 4-and-a-half minute track Starboy and Duncan can be heard singing about whether they'd receive as much love as they do, if their status and riches disappeared.

This is Wizkid's latest offering, following the smooth, summertime banger "Kana" with Olamide. Revisit that track here, and watch the music video for "Fake Love" below.

"I realised that people really love him during the shoot of the 'Ke Star' music video," a passer-by says. "It was wild."

Just like today. The same group, which has now grown bigger, waits outside the spot where Focalistic will sit down for an interview. They each want a picture with one of the country's most promising rappers. They have to wait until he's done answering our questions. Asked if he enjoys being mobbed by fans, he says, "It's not like I like it. But it's something you get used to and you understand it. It's love, it's never to irritate."
