Tagged “Insane Dance”
This innovation has never been done before in Afrobeat history, its a dynamic choreography by these African queens, created to introduce a new type of sound called Electronic Afrobeats. Having worked with big names like D’Banj, Iyanya,Tiwa Savage, Dr. Sid, MI, Lola Rae in music videos and performed at big gigs around the world, these trio just continue to flourish.
So go on and get familiar with this new trend and watch what these two parties (CEO Dancers & Eminik) have put together, its Insane indeed!!

This video shows Governor Adams Oshiomhole ostensibly leading officials of the state to sanitize the city of Benin, the Edo State capital. In the course of his tour of duty, he came across a widow roadside hawker.
The poor widow knelt before the imperial governor, a former labour leader, begging for her little means of livelihood to be saved. She pleaded that she's widow. But her pleas fell on the governor's deaf ear. In what could be regarded as the most unkindest cut of all, the governor said the widowed woman should "go and die"!
This can best be described as the most shocking statement made by a State Governor to a poor widow. The heart of man they say is desperately wicked.
Coming soon!! Watch the full coverage on Hip TV special on DStv channel 324 this Saturday November 30!!

Empire Mates Entertainment is proud to present the official video for Banky W's "Jasi". The song was produced by MasterKraft, and features additional background vocals by EME starlet Niyola. The hilarious clip was shot in Lagos, Nigeria and London.
"Jasi" highlights Banky W's playfulness AND versatility. Very few artistes worldwide are able to change styles as effortlessly as Mr W can... and here we see him temporarily set aside his "King of Afro-R&B" crown to pull off this Afrobeats/Afropop club banger, and it works quite well. The video also shows his acting skills as Banky plays more than one role, in the same scene, in the vein of an Eddie Murphy or Tyler Perry.
Shot by Uber Director Sesan, the video is quite hilarious and features cameos from MasterKraft, and Lynxxx... and we hope you have as much fun watching it, as we did filming it. Here's to Africa's most versatile Artist, Banky W.
