“I know say I no strong like Mike Tyson
I know say I no getti voice like Michael Jackson
I know say I no sweet like Zara Larson
I know say I no get money like Richard Branson
But wetin I get pass money wey you want

We previously reviewed the audio of the song, so we will be talking about the video today. The first thing you should know is we were anticipating this video for so long and the build-up, at least from our end was huge. Only for us to be straight up disappointed by the boringly routine video we got from Mr Eazi. In fact, we enjoyed the animation video more. You can view the videos below and compare.Unto the review.
There was anticipation for the video of this song, no matter how little. So imagine our surprise when we got something so ordinary and well boring. Yes, we said it, excuse us for being a little dramatic but we expected something with more flare. Something that was going to you know get the internet talking about the song. No, we are not talking about the kind of controversy that fever generated (it was short lived anyway).
Okay, we will tell what we expected when we projected a video for the song. After the release of the song, especially the animation video, Mr. Eazi should have announced a dance contest. You know, anybody that can replicate the dance steps in the animation and add some extra flares. Now the contestants will have to do this and upload t on their social media with the hashtag #surrender or something.
This should run for a month, then a winner is selected. Some of the best dance moves can even be mashed up into the video and the winner can even be dancing in the video.
A good storyline would have been sufficient for the video but oh well, I guess we have to make do with what we were given. However, we feel it is not too late for the dance contest. So what you say(In Jason Derulo) Mr. Eazi?
