This young man has come a long way! From the days of producing music videos that had me cringing because of their lack of quality. To now, producing quality work that has me wanting to be one of his video vixens. In Africa,we wear clothes (my excuse).
By the way, if this adds any clout to him being a starra, he did a remix to Mr. Endowed with Snoop Dogg. One thing I absolutely abhorred was the fact that none of the vixens spotted anything closely remote or reminiscent of Africa. They were just typical girls in a hip-hop video! Quality video this time round, but content was just bleh!
