Nigerian Afro-jazz singer-songwriter, Nissi has released a brand new rhythmic single Judi.

Essentially meaning ‘dance’ or more literally, “shake your bum” in Yoruba, Judi is a happy, vibrant, and feel-good song that motivates people to embrace happiness at all times, regardless of any situation they find themselves in produced by Kwame Yeboah.

Directed by “The Alien”, the video which was shot in Nigeria’s busiest city, Lagos, portrays a rich Afrocentric style that has fast become the modern-day norm. The video admits familiar urban props and scenes peculiar to the metropolitan city, some of which are the yellow “danfo” buses.

Speaking on the inspiration behind ‘Judi’, Nissi said; “Judi is a piece of a big jigsaw puzzle which highlights the importance of self-care. It intends to remind people to live life to the fullest despite the issues we face daily. There was that moment in my life when it felt like all I did was work and solve problems but never made time to enjoy life. ‘Judi’ encourages you to let loose sometimes, because the reality is, everyone goes through that phase at some point.”
