Fresh from the successes of his last two singles “No Wahala” and “Ijo Sona” which have been streamed online over half a million times in only a few months, and received rave reviews from leading African tastemakers, fast-rising British Nigerian Pop artist and musician SONA is proud to debut the exquisite and cinematic new music video for his excellent new single “Omode Yi”.
Directed by Alexx Adjei and inspired by classic 90’s film Love & Basketball, the visuals for “Omode Yi” are lush, cinematic and possibly Sona’s best visual offering yet, as he continues to push the envelope with the creativity of his music videos. Collaborating once again with producer O.Y Beatz on the music front, “Omode Yi” is an infectious bass-heavy dance anthem, backed by amazing drum patterns, synths and horn arrangements, and topped off with Sona’s captivating flow and lyrics.
Living up to the mantle as one of the stand-out new artists of 2014, Sona continues to deliver on all fronts, not least with the incredible numbers he has been pulling with his single and video releases. Rave reviews and support have come from leading African music websites, with international critical acclaim coming from the likes of BBC 1Xtra, Capital Xtra, BET International, Okayafrica, Bang Radio, Reprezent 107.3 FM and Vox Africa.
