Following on the back of the release of his excellent new singles ‘Brodies’ and ‘Tell You’, which has been garnering strong support from the biggest industry tastemakers and music publications across Africa, masked Nigerian rapper and Afrobeats artist ADLIB THE JOURNEYMAN (ADLIB for short) is excited to release the brand new music video for his fan-favourite single ‘BRODIES’.
Filmed on location in King’s Cross in London, the visuals for ‘Brodies’ see Adlib The Journeyman showing off his friends to the world, as the lyrics of the song promote, in a fun, dapper and celebratory way. Inspired by a scene from Kendrick Lamar’s ‘All The Stars’ music video, the ‘Brodies’ video puts forward a message of black excellence and brotherhood between Adlib The Journeyman and his close friends.
Taking his inspiration from legendary musician Lagbaja, who he mirrors by wearing a mask that is also reminiscent of West African masquerades, as well as the likes of Fela Kuti, Pasuma and Eldee the Don, Adlib wants to use his music, which is often described as ‘conscious Afrobeats’, to positively impact on society in Nigeria and Africa, and is not afraid of tackling the important issues through his music.
Adlib The Journeyman is gearing up to release his debut EP early next year, and since the release of his two singles ‘Brodies’ and ‘Tell You’, the masked rapper has quickly become one to watch for 2019. With the release of the exciting music video for ‘Brodies’, his stock is sure to continue to rise well into the end of year, with anticipation for more music from Adlib set to reach fever pitch.
