Nigerian Afrobeats star and Rasaki record label boss L.A.X debuts the highly anticipated visuals for his latest single titled ‘Nobody’, as premiered by The FADER, featuring longtime collaborator, mentor, and multi-award winning Afrobeats front runner Wizkid, who has just sold out the O2 Arena in London, as the first African artist to accomplish this feat.
L.A.X and man of the moment, Wizkid have a history with each other, after teaming up years ago on hit singles ‘Caro’ and ‘Ginger’, L.A.X was then an artist signed by Wizkid to his infamous Starboy music imprint. With two huge collaborations under their belt and L.A.X moving on to launch his own record label, with the blessing of his mentor Wizkid, the two artists have teamed up once again for the first time in years on what is anticipated to be one of the songs of the summer this year.
The single titled ‘Nobody’, which is produced by ALTIMS, who has worked with Tiwa Savage, Korede Bello and Reekado Banks, to mention a few, is sure to get both sets of fans, and every Afrobeats fan excited. The video was shot in Lagos, Nigeria and helmed by Paul Gambit, an incredible director who has worked with the who’s who of African popular music including Davido and Yemi Alade. He showcases both stars excellently in the visuals and creates a captivating video to match the equally captivating song.
Speaking about how ‘Nobody’ came about, L.A.X says, “It’s been a while since I worked with Wiz and this is one of the records we made when we got back into the studio together. Wizkid fell in love with it straight away when I played it to him, as it was different from your regular Afrobeats, this has different elements of R&B, Trap and Dancehall to it, and I can’t wait for the fans to hear the song and watch the video“.
Expanding on their chemistry and what to expect from the record, Wizkid adds that, “This record is such a vibe and teaming up with a brother of mine who I have shared successes with in the past, made it even more special. This is the beginning of another chapter of our working relationship and friendship, and this incredible song is just the first result of it all“.
