Following a successful EP release, Apolo Imon has set the season off. With enchanting tropical singles, above being one of them is a mid-tempo cruise with an African bounce that is undeniably the root essence of all his recent music.
Apolo takes us back to the good old Highlife days with this song. When music held strong emotional resonance within its listener. The lyrics where intellectually provoking but yet structured in an exciting and intriguing manner. Above is a follow up single off his upcoming visual project ‘coup’ set to be out next month.
He seals the deal by delivering this Afrocentric fluid landscape of tropical motion in this montage by Vizu. Co-directed by himself and Vizu Filmhouse,.
This urban African representation cannot be ignored. Apolo creates a smooth bridge between neat and rugged in this visual masterpiece. Achieved it by merging three different distinguished personalities. He also explained how dance redeems.
Above was produced by Ransom. Scripted by Apolo, directed by Vizu, art directed by Fara Farai. Cinematography and editing by Checko Peter.
We need to encourage and promote true Africanism through arts. This music video does it for me. It reconnects one spiritually and gives a reliving experience.
Congrats to Apolo Imon and his team. I pray this music video brings his act to the fore. African needs its best performers.
