Wande Coal x Baby Hello

The video for Wande Cole’s Baby Hello sees Yemi Alade as the video girl in what looks to us like Naija’s 2014 take on Billy Joel’s Uptown Girl video. Rotate is still getting a lot of love from us but this one is following in its footsteps.

Busy Signal x Lonely

Busy Signal does love a cover version and so do we, especially if its a dancehall one! The intro to lonely sees him interpolating Kool & The Gang’s Cherish. Its nice to have a video treatment for lonely but we kinda wish he did one for these covers too. We feel like we lost a bit of ourselves now that carnival is over for another year and Lonely is kinda easing the pain!
