For Davido Production Is Always 5 Star, The Standard Must Never Drops – The Best Video Review
The Review, Creating a beautiful sound in a dark studio is one thing, translating that music to an appropriate video is another thing, Davido ’s “The Best” featuring Mayorkun is a song from his 2020 album “A Better Time” 2020.
When this song became a favourite an almost outshine the buzzing song “FEM” at that time and also position Mayorkun as a gifted artist, It is no brainer that a video for the song will be released. Making an appearance is the legendary Wande Coal and it’s directed by Dammy Twitch.
The video opens to a cool scenery of nature and then we see a Samaria which is obviously The Mayor Of Lagos Mayorkun. Immediately following suits are clips of Sumaria life that we would see as the music video on folds.
As I watched I wondered why Davido and Dammy Twitch will choose to channel Samurai and Ninja life. There is the risk of cultural appropriation and the obvious fact that this song doesn’t talk about any of the obvious values of Samurai living. As I watched the video in mute, I saw a story of a young man (Mayorkun) in search of something, he finds it but he has to fight for it. At his first attempt he gets beaten up, then he goes to get the required skill to be a better fighter. He comes to a grand patron (Davido) who teaches him and he goes back to fight and this time he wins simply because he learnt from the best.
