Following the recent release of his sophomore EP Ìréti which has been championed by Apple Music/Beats 1, The FADER, BBC 1Xtra, Capital Xtra, Red Bull Music, Rinse FM and MTV UK among others, and on the back of his sold out headline concert at Birthdays last month, British Nigerian Afrobeats musician and MOBO Awards nominee Moelogo is proud to present the brand new video for ‘My City’, one of the leading tracks on his Ìréti EP.
Instantly a massive favourite among fans and critics alike upon its release a few months ago, ‘My City’ is a superb Dancehall-tinged ode to Moelogo’s Peckham hometown. The single was produced by long-time collaborator P2J (Krept & Konan, Wretch 32, Lily Allen), and co-written by Moelogo and Ari Pensmith (Wale, Akon, Trey Songz), with UK chart topping songwriter Ms D (Wiley, Chip, Craig David) and Teni Tinks (Jessie J, Emeli Sandé) providing additional vocals.
Directed by Kevin Hudson (Link Up TV, Bugzy Malone, MoStack), the video for ‘My City’ sees Moelogo showing love and respect for the city of London, while also channelling his spirit animal, ‘The Fox with the Wave’ as he fondly describes it, to push the record’s central theme of understanding and acceptance without undue judgement. The video also features a beautiful opening monologue from London-based Spoken Word artist and poet Suli Breaks.
