I honestly want to know how this artiste’s mind works, he continually continues to up the ante in everything he does. From his Annual Movie concert, Love like a movie where he has brought in the likes of Reality Super star Kim Kardashian , Grammy award winning super Star Kelly Rowland and most recently Music Super Star Ciara, to the grand performances and live events that are his Album Launches to his Visually stimulating Music Videos . Darey is an artiste with a plan.
He plans to remain Original, Timeless and true to the Art and all his influences…….In my mind these are what drives this young man to bid his time and come out with classic projects rather than litter our ears with tasteless popcorn singles as some of his contemporaries do.
So I was not surprised when the Visual for a song I already loved (Pray for Me) off his Naked Album literally blew my mind. He called on the services of two Nollywood Legends Olu Jacobs and his wife Joke Jacobs in this video to perfectly evoke in film the lyrics of this song. Taking us on a journey as he stubbornly leaves home to seek for riches in the Big City.
Pray for Me Video will take you places in its short time that you may not have bargained for, a lot of people will identify with the lyrics of this song, and even if it is not your story line, between Darey’s captivating voice and the harmonies your ears will melt to from the voices of the Soweto Gospel choir, The Visuals will remind you why Darey Art Alade will continue to be one of the best to master his craft.
Watch the Stunning Visuals below.
