What Went Wrong With Wizkid’s Ginger Video? Here’s A Logical Answer by mantosa(m): 9:20am On Jan 09

The second Friday of the year followed the template of the first: No new music. A boring day lacking novelty lied ahead. But there was a contrast, Wizkid had picked January 8th as the date for the release of the visuals to Ginger, one of the smash hits from his epoch-making album, Made In Lagos.

As anticipation swelled for the release, people created fantasies on how the video might turn out. With Wizkid giving an insight into the template for his music video in an interview with Beat FM London, expectations on Friday were thus high. Hours preceding the release, Wizkid FC were already doing their thing. Hashtag GingerVideoPremiere nestled at the top of Nigerian Twitter Trends.

Then at 3pm, the video dropped. Did it satisfy expectations?

Maybe. But boring was the word said by most people after watching. No exciting plot. Engaging storyline missing. Nothing surprising about the video. It simply slotted into “Nigerian music videos with vibes.” This category is created for unmemorable music videos; music enthusiasts watch once and never go back to. In one word: forgettable.

Of course, the visuals for Smile, one of the singles off Made In Lagos can’t be found in this category. It’s easily the best video Nigerian music industry saw last year. Why’s Ginger different?

For a long time, songs have always tried to tell some sort of story in their lyrics even if the message or story isn’t the greatest ever. Music videos therefore serve as interpretation to the songs, helping the listeners make meaning of the lyrics.

Fact, people have argued Ginger itself doesn’t have a storyline compared to Smile in terms of lyrical content and thus, this might be the befitting video Ginger could have gotten. But you wonder why Wizkid was lyrically serenading an unknown love interest in the first verse: “Make I touch up on it/Make I rub, make I love, make I rub, make I touch up on it.” This exact serenade is missing in that video. Plus the eventual disconnect of the lyrics and music video is evident with the lead dancer being left alone to do some seductive body whining.

Damnnn niggarrrr
Isoright

Nothing went wrong
There is no doubt this analysis and reasoning is coming from that untalented frogged voice fans who uses too much voice enhancer in the studio and still dishes out dogg shitt to the Public or rather to his fans

Most of those videos are zero. Nothing fantastic or intriguing about Nigeria music videos. You listen to some lyrics and be like, what the hell! Absolute gibberish

Wizkid has completed 10 years in the music industry therefore, he is bound to decline. Na so fame be. This is Burna Boy's 8th year in the industry, nai make Burna Boy still dey hot.

Any song wizkid, Olamide and Davido release cannot blow massively again cause they all have exceeded the 10 years mark.
