Nigerian Cinematographer, Aremu Olaiwola Qudus, popularly known as Director K, has stated that Wizkid wanted Tems to be the center of attention in the Essence Video.
‘Essence’, described as the “song of the summer”, is an Afropop song that is currently on a world chart-topping run at the moment, with a remix with Canadian star Justin Bieber already in the books.
Tems, who took the hook for the song, has been getting a lot of buzz following the song, with the latest being her feature on Drake’s incoming album.
