Check out the music video for Wizkid and the Starboy collective's first single.

The music video for Wizkid and his Starboy crew's dance-Inducing single "Soco" has arrived.

The vibrant song gets an equally lively video, directed by Clarence Peters, which see Wizkid and three members of his Starboy collective: new signee Terri (who got signed recently after tagging Wizkid in an Instagram video), Spotless, and Ceeza Milli In a colorful outdoor setting, jamming into the night with a group of talented dancers.


There are some pretty memorable dance routines in this one, with Wikid even hitting the popular shaku shaku dance throughout the video.

"Soco" is the lead single from Made in Lagos, a newly-announced forthcoming EP from the Starboy crew, which—given how much of a banger "Socco" is— we're pretty excited about.

Watch the video down below.
