Nigerian music sensation, Davido, has unveiled the much-anticipated music video for “Feel,” a standout track from his “Timeless” album. The release, which took place on October 3, 2023, has already garnered significant attention and sparked a plethora of reactions from fans and critics alike.
The video, described by Davido as a “movie,” showcases a blend of captivating visuals and intricate storytelling, setting it apart from typical music videos. The singer took to his official social media platforms to encourage fans to watch the video, emphasizing the cinematic quality of the production. “Made a movie with this one, come watch with me on my Youtube and tell me how it makes you FEEL,” he wrote.
The directorial prowess of TG Omori, a renowned Nigerian music video director, is evident in the video’s production. Prior to the video’s release, a snippet shared by Omori had already created a buzz on social media, setting high expectations for the full release.
Interestingly, the video’s budget has been a topic of discussion. In a previous interview in March, Davido mentioned spending a whopping N100 million on the video shoot, a claim that has since stirred mixed reactions. Some fans lauded the video’s quality, with comments like “We asked for a music video and 001 gave us a movie. Everything about this video was lit!” Others, however, questioned the expenditure, with remarks such as “Over hyped video.. 100 million in the mud.”
