I believe we all know the story surrounding the leaked Skelewu video which was met with wide-spread criticism. Davido posted some controversial tweets about the leak which led to video director SESAN’s credibility being called into question – albeit no specific names were mentioned (see the tweets).
As expected, SESAN has moved quickly to respond. See his statement below.
“My attention is drawn toward the chaos surrounding the release of the Skelewu video .
Myself and my team shot the video for Davido in Nigeria and to the best of my knowledge my client and his team were very happy with the result, when they watched/ and approved the video. If he has since had a change of heart, that is ok. I am not in any way responsible for the release of the video. I believe Davido and myself did a very good job regarding the video production and as a professional of over 10 years.
I find it very irresponsible and immature if my client and his management publicly put out false statements/comments, in an attempt to tarnish my name, credibility and reputation.
I remain dedicated, humble, focused and as hard working as ever. Thank you to all my fans and industry professionals – Stay blessed.” – SESAN.
While I have my own personal reservations about the original #Skelewu video, I think SESAN’s record speaks for itself. There’s a reason why some of the BIGGEST artists go to him to create the visuals for some of the biggest songs of the last 5 years.
There’s more to come from SESAN – Channel O’s Most Visionary Music Director in Africa – before the end of 2013, including videos for “Rotate” by Wande Coal, “Jaiye Jaiye” by Wizkid, and “Le Kwa Ukwu” by Iyanya.
