IT'S THE FINEST VIDEO

This has to be one of my favourite videos yet. It's from the media production coy that has come to invade our music, Knighthouse. They started with the matrix/clubby video which featured M.I, Nyore and Mo'Cheddah, then shocked us with a Clarence Peters video that not only had Tha Suspect rapping in English (dude's known for his pidgin English flows); but had Clarence himself spitting a very mean 16..what what what...lol.

Now this video is called 'The Finest' and it features Naija's mad rapper, Saucekid (lol); fresh, fine boy rapper and freestyle champ, Teeto and the new pop princess, Mo'Cheddah. The video was shot and directed by Clarence A. Peters and his Capital Dreams crew, somewhere in Ikeja, Lagos. The video had cameo appearances by some of Naija's finest and True School artistes; Terry Tha Rapman, Loose Kaynon, Kel, Wizkid, 4th Republic, Ex-O etc and then there were different crews reppin their areas (hoods...lol).

I love the energy and vibe in this video, everytime I see it, I get prouder (pardonez moi) of Nigerian entertainment. The concept of the vid, the scenes, the lyrics, the artiste were just so on point!! My favourite scenes in this vid are 'the scene wth Teeto working out (just hooooot!!!)'; 'the scene close to the end when Mo'Cheddah just dances away (lovely!)'; the Vegas looking scene in the car; 'the scene with the Knighthouse crew, where Othello does his thing, calling out the areas and things'; the end of the vid where Saucekid shows his true colours; and my most fav was the scene where all the artistes I work with appeared...Kel, Wizkid, Adonis, Tha Suspect and Slim T :) (sweeeet!!!!!!!! lol) I'm just excited about the video and even more thrilled that the Knighthouse Street Scriptures Vol. 1 drops May 31st.

Here's the video, enjoy!

Guess who's climbing up the pipes...PIPER...lol!

Here's introducing a new act outta Naija...PIPER!!!

He was born in the nineties, a revolutionary period for hip-hop music around the world. One might say that being born during that era is probably the reason why Piper got influenced by music at such an early age. Others may say it was being born to a family where his father was a deejay that inspired him to doing music professionally. For Piper, it all started at a very young age when he’d go for shows and subconsciously imbibe what he saw different artists do on stage. He discovered a studio close to his house, recorded a track called ‘Naija Boy’ and the following week, it got played on radio by Dayo Adeneye (D1) and that was when he decided to do music professionally.

Although he’s in his 2nd year at the Ajayi Crowther University, Oyo, Piper’s ready to drop his first singles, which include the club banger, ‘Wine It For Me’ with Terry G. Piper’s style of music is influenced by a blend of his love for hip-hop and afro-beat (special reference to Fela); he gathers inspiration from life’s experiences.
