First of all, reggae music is not a popular genre in Nigeria, for keying into the genre and interpreting effortlessly Dice Angel and Nelson Bright deserves a medal each. Next, the video according to filmmaking jargons is called TRAGEDY. It tells a story of the outcome of keeping bad company, BAD GANG according to Ajebutter22.
From a very tender age (say 7-10years) the key character, according to the video was pictured with some friends who accompanied him to steal candy from an Aboki. Grown up to ages 15 or 16, during his secondary school education was introduced to women, alcohol and smoking. In the alcohol scene, i noticed that the green bottle that was used and the brand name/logo was totally concealed to avoid free promo. lol
Lastly, the key character who lived a reckless life reached his day of reckoning and was shot dead. Overall the video was properly translated but for a honest review my only problem is the gunshot scene (FOUND HERE) – I find it difficult to relate with the events around when he was shot. – Leave us a comment below if you get the picture clearly. Thanks
After everything done and dusted, it is fair to give the video a 7/10 rating overall. Big ups Dice Angel! Big ups Nelson Bright.
