Shatta Wale’s ‘most expensive’ music video 'Gringo' premieres on MTVBase
‘Gringo,’ a new single taken off Shatta Wale’s upcoming ‘Reign’ album will be unveiled on MTVBase tomorrow.
According to his handlers, Zylofon Music, this is the most expensive music video the dance hall king has produced in history of his music career.
‘Gringo’ has been captured in a short film, directed by internationally-recognized video director, Sesan, for Film Factory and produced by David Nguyen.
The film would show for the first time across Africa on MTVBase, Channel 322 on the ‘Spanking New’ show, on Friday, April 27, 2018.
Shot in the province of Blanco, Texas, USA, at the Buggy Barn Museum and cast in the 1880s, the film cast over 20 international actors in what is arguably tagged as the most expensive video shot by any homegrown artiste from Africa.
Shatta Wale, who has been enlisted by international portal, netnewsledger.com, as one of the Top 10 Dancehall artists in the world – has amassed over 65million views of his videos since 2012 – making him one of the most-viewed and most-sought-after artists in Africa.
Sesan Ogunro, is a UK-based Nigerian video producer, director and 3D Animator, who is widely recognized for quality works done for the likes of French Montana, D’Banj, Tiwa Savage, MI, Sarkodie, Davido and many others.
Shatta Wale got signed onto Zylofon Music record label earlier this year.
