Over a year ago, an unconventional friendship was born on Twitter between Nigeria's self-proclaimed "monotone rap princess", Kah-Lo, and veteran French house producer, Riton.
The result of this friendship was 2016's insanely infectious deep house banger, "Rinse & Repeat" – which ended up nabbing both artistes a nomination at the 2017 Grammy Awards for 'Best Dance Recording'.
For his second collaboration with Kah-Lo, Riton decided to take things up a notch by adding two of the biggest Nigerian artistes working today, Davido and Mr Eazi – and the result is the delightful earworm that is "Money".
The music video for "Money", which premiered yesterday, finds the artistes in Lagos – Davido joins in remotely via a TV screen – enjoying the beautiful but chaotic city and dancing their hearts out.
Speaking with The FADER about the experience, Riton said:
“It was my first time in Lagos and I was super psyched to go there as I’ve been a fan of Afrobeat for so long.
It’s a wild experience shooting on the streets of Lagos. We really wanted to capture as much of the life out there without it looking like an Instagram mood story.
The video reflects the message of the track, that the best things in life are free."
