David Knight - 22nd Jan 2019

Meji Alabi captures dancehall star Popcaan and singer/producder Davido in this vibrant celebration of Nigerian womanhood for the laid-back Dun Rich.

Shot all over Lagos, and mixing documentary footage with the slicker performance stuff, it features all kinds of Lagos girl - cheerleaders, boxers, models, swimmers and bikers. It brings everything together at the national stadium with girl athletes and a formidable group in national costume.

As usual, Meji Alabi (below centre, with Davido and Popcaan) packs a lot in three or so minutes.

MEJI ALABI:

We did it all in two days, running around in Lagos with a smaller crew.

"We had a great opportunity to celebrate the unconventional Nigerian woman with this video and had a lot of fun with it.

"Popcaan and Davido were awesome and really made it a seamless project. We did it all in two days, running around in Lagos with a smaller crew. We shot in the National Stadium which was an insane backdrop amongst other great places. Lagos is just beautiful."
