Feel like relaxing? Well there’s something to help you along. Jose Chameleone and Leila Kayondo’s much anticipated official ‘Relaxing’ music video. The video premiere took place on Sunday at Club Venom’s beach bar in Kabalagala.
The song that was produced by Washington, was an instant club hit with FM radios following suit. Since then the months of June and July saw it spread like wild fire with fans of both artists crying for a video for the Dance hall song.
After rumours of hesitations from Chameleone (Apparently he had refused to do the video and only relented after Leila’s boyfriend SK Mbuga intervened), the video was finally shot mid July by Savy Films and directed by Sasha Vybz in Kololo and The Bay in Munyonyo Kampala.
The video scenes oscillate from night club partying to a beach setting, then bonfire and camping to just having a relaxing ride in a luxurious car. It all starts in a boardroom meeting where ‘serious corporates’ are discussing their business plans and strategies. With the attendants nodding in agreement when Leila the presenter ‘hits a point.’
It then rolls into a frenzy of fun as they start the party right in the boardroom after probably ‘nailing a deal’. I must confess though the boardroom intro is a little uncomfortable especially with Leila’s presentation looking awkward and rehearsed.
The rest is the crafty work of a genius in play as Sasha adds color and pomp to the party, giving it life and the natural setting and surrounding Leila is comfortable in. She leads the dancing with the other vixens just giving the relaxing atmosphere as the camera movements and angles exaggerate the dance moves to ease the efforts of the dancers and clubbers. In all it’s a well packaged video for a good song.
