Spaceship Collective’s Buju Tye releases the highly anticipated and arresting visuals to his latest hit single ”So Lovely”. Produced by Timi Jay, the sexy tune is given new life with this zestful visual under the direction of “The Alien”, who enmeshes the gusto, beauty, grace and richness of the African woman. ‘SO LOVELY‘ the visual is a festival of colours which brandishes the African vibe to an already groovy song. Shot in Lagos, the video opens with anticipation of what the night has to offer, Buju steps out, oblivious to the activity around him and makes his way to the bar where he takes us on a lyrical adventure. Buju is a stimulating sight for sore eyes and his laidback swag is endearing as he delivers those famous lyrics in pidgin English and Yoruba: ‘She say she dey lonely and she go like to boogey down on me. She dey relationship but he don’t ever keep you company’. With the ‘So lovely’ visual, The Alien has succeeded in revealing Buju Tye as that artiste that the world needs to pay attention to.
