Davido not satisfied with Skelewu video, reshooting it + Nigerians react to the video

Davido shot Skelewu video with prolific music video director Sesan and apparently didn't like it and was planning to do a re-shoot but someone leaked the video. Davido says he's planning to reshoot the video tomorrow with UK based music video director, Moe Musa. Hopefully, that will be a better vid.

Meanwhile some people have reacted to video and many are not pleased. See their tweets after the cut

When you got bastard money you can afford to reshoot videos after they have been 'leaked'. I am glad Davido cares what the fans think about his video. That's good thinking. Oya enter the place.

Good call! Won't be the first time a song had more than 1 video. Get it right this time!

Honestly d video was over hyped

LOL! What a massive insult this is to Sesan's CV, a rejected video, wow! In anticipation for the "real" video then.

He really need to reshoot

Anonymous said...

Abeg the video is okay. The song doesn't require a serious video. Unfortunately, Davido is now a victim of the high standards he set with his past videos.

I saw d video 2,I was like men I can't even see the dance steps. My own thought, sesan has never been a good director he is just over hype by d'banj. FiNEWiNe.

Amanda said...

I am very disappointed in Sesans work, my goodness he has been directing some really low class videos lately, he used to be top class when he was working with mohits...what went wrong? please improve on your visuals

Is not that bad it's a very nice video.

Dead video!! Reshooting it. Sounds funny and somehow

BUSY BEE said...

Dat video na rubbish. The producer must be a learner. Davido is just a noisemaker.

Anonymous said...

I honestly thgt same but deceided to be mute since I have no experience. I thgt he shld have done better, cos those pple were so not it esp the group dance towards the end; like ' who let the dogs out......'. Pls work harder on it davido, you ought to do better!!!

Anonymous said...

i love the song die, but i think i even prefer the instructional vid to his official. I actual liked the concept of the instructional vid cos it was fun, simple with no frills. I hope the new one will have the same vibe and less of the naked pointless naked girls.

Jay z use to do it all over again if he's not satisfy wit the work they do 4 him.so,Is good that he wanna reshoot it.good or bad,is a choice.

Skelewu video? Dt vid z more like a rehearsal video..I even prefer d instructional video to dz shit of a video.Though I expected sth doped frm Davido and Sesan.smh*

Anonymous said...

There is nothing wrong with this video. I'm sure half of the people saying it's not good haven't even seen it and are just following the crowd. Maybe the video is not so exciting but it's not bad. Just like the video with Tiwa savage and donjazzy we expect more but the video wasn't bad. My opinion :) L.

I thought it was a nice concept, more dance less skin. However, a bit disorganized. The men dancing looked real nice, but not choreographed properly..okay Kiddy now your work is cut out. The big guy in black who came out to dance, I was looking forward to his moves and it was cut off.
More grease to your elbow Davido, I really wish you would read this....we don't need naked women, we want dance dance dance.

Pls I don't understand the slang "over hype". Can someone explain? The standing on the cars I didn't really like but I enjoyed d music.

Msheewwwwwwww guess u need a standing oviation for this right ok back to the matter tiwa and don jazz video is far better than this skelewu guess. U use ur inner eyes to watch the two video u comparing you better go for jigi bola before it too late. Bcs personally,habatically the video is wack thnk me later . But in advance u wc.

Girl next door - Virus Detected! said...

Lmao, to be frank I feel no one leaked the video. He dint expect the criticism at all n now he's feeling bad about it n wnts to redoo it. Cos all he needed to do was say it leaked n he's gonna redoo it rather than ranting abt karma n syin he knew 2weeks ago.. Did he nt view it been edited? Make he go sitdown jo, such ppl neva wanna accept they re wrong n can be corrected busy acting like he knew it b4 ppl reacted

Smh#must peeps commenting I bet haven't watched dat video n d are bluffing spiritually!!haters will keep hating,to me I love d video.he half killed it tho...

chydum kingsley said...

Please davido, go to clarence peters and moe musa to collabo n make a nice video of dat song. Alingo, personally, even Ada Ada by flavour etc are all a living testimony of their work.
Sesan has never been good dont allow him to mess skelewu up jst as he did DBanj's Mo Gbono Feli Feli. Go to da ryt video and to ur tin. I tink making it a street video wit a lil kinda funny dramatic storyline will be jst goood. Nwanne Jisike O.

That's exactly what he needs. 'NEW DANCERS' those guys tho, I dnt know where he got them from..... And to SESAN, 'Am Not Impressed'. Skelewu is a track that can take over the continent. We expected more.

Anonymous said...

To be honest yea, i tot as such, it didn't have enough energy to what i expected, even the one a girl shot on the streets of London was better no new dance steps nothing, sesan released it because of his useless ego, if the boy don't like the rubbish why fall his hands, but to be candid, the video was boring i think davido is doing the right thing,, after all he SESAN cant claim lack of communication .

Anonymous said...

Davido u messed up ur Video. Am sure u did not allow the guy to do his Job. Seeing every member of ur crew on that Video sucks. It's not a must that all of them must be on ur Video. Can't u see they don't have the energy to do the Skelewu Dance? Sesan did a great Job there. Dallas.
