To say I am thrilled that GT DA GUITARMAN IS BACK IN THE MUSIC GAME AND LOOKS LIKE HE WILL BE STAYING FOR A WHILE IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT! Yes, I am capping all of my prior sentences so you know I am that excited!
About 2007-2008, when I really got into the works of artists at Storm Records at the time, I would consistently ask Obi Asika, when he would solicit features on Ladybrille for his other artists, what about GT? I want GT. GT’s sound is what I want. Lol!
Obi kept saying, “it’s coming, it’s coming” but I never saw anything! Storm promised an album to all and for me both personally and professionally, I was waiting. It never came. Instead, within a span of six years, I only heard a few songs and the news that GT decided to walk away from Storm after a long time of bench warming on the sidelines at Storm.
I think the breakup was a good career move for GT. Storm, in my view, sat on him way too long. It has taken quite a while but I am glad to see GT get his bearings and now execute on a level that is competitive. There is room and a market for his kind of music. Even if there isn’t, someone has to create the opportunity and why not him?
I love his company logo, the video, and of course the song. I think it would have been nice to have the band play against a different backdrop. Nevertheless, the texture of the video and its overall quality is great. I love the styling, the story telling, in short everything works!
I am glad to see even more solid music video directors emerge in our industry. Yay! It seemed like everyone was stuck on having only Clarance Peters shoot their videos.
Check on GT’s Ejika (meaning shoulder) music video.
For those who would rather listen, check out the audio clip below.
“Here is the official video for GT the guitarman’s smash hit single-EJIKA which means shoulder.The RFI-FRANCE 24 Discoveries Award 2012 nominee is gearing up for a busy year,as plans are in progress to shoot 3 more musical videos off his sophomore and would soon be announcing his tour dates. He vows NEVER to make the fans (that would be me. Yes, I am a fan and a biased one too!) wait too long before they hear another GT Tune. I hope you enjoy this beautiful piece as much as we enjoyed putting it together for you. yall are the real EJIKA!!!!
Thanks for always being there..Cheers Video directed by 12 Digits pictures for EMBER ENTERTAINMENTS
