Wizkid's Alternate Music Video for 'Come Closer' Is Totally Better Than the First

Wizkid dropped an alternate music video for his Drake-assisted hit "Come Closer," directed by Alan Ferguson.

DIASPORA—Wizkid dropped an alternate music video for his Drake-assisted hit "Come Closer," last week and, we must say, that we enjoy it much more than the first.


The video—directed by the acclaimed video director and husband of Solange Knowles, Alan Ferguson—sees Wizkid and some stylish friends at a dreamy summer get-together, brimming with rich color, bold fashion, and gorgeous melanin. The 3 and-a-half minute music video boasts features from Khoudia Diop (aka Melanin Goddess) , and even Davido's reported ex-girlfirend Sira Kante, who plays Wizkid's love interest. Like we said before, the Davido versus Wizkid rivalry is the gift that keeps on giving.

Oh, and there's still no appearance from Drizzy Drake—in case you were wondering.

With its fun dance numbers and vintage Malik Sidibé vibes, the video is a visual stunner that has us wondering why Starboy didn't just drop this version in the first place. We're glad it's here now.

Watch the video below. Wizkid's Sounds From the Other Side drops July 14.
