Following the success of Asiko Laiye and Orekelewa visuals, Nigeria’s King of R&B Darey has released the video for Pray For Me,the latest video off his fifth studio album Naked featuring South African Grammy Award winners Soweto Gospel Choir.
Directed by Mex, the video, which was shot on site in Abeokuta, Lagos and Johannesburg features guest appearances from Olu Jacobs and Joke Silva. The video follows an exchange between a young man and his estranged father after he leaves his family to chase his big city dream, but soon finds that progress in the city isn’t as it seems and it’s a slow and stressful affair.
Speaking about the Pray For Me video, Darey said, The story behind the song was inspired by the experience of P Square, and
I was very excited to get the opportunity to bring in the acting talent of Olu Jacobs and Joke Silva in the video. It’s a really deep and resonant story for many people, and their appearance in the video brings the story to life and gives it a whole new level of depth.
Pray For Me tells a powerful, positive story of victory against all odds. The track was produced by Oscar Heman-Ackah
