Nigerian Singer Runtown’s Designer Speaks On Fashion In ‘Mad Over You’ Video

Runtown has become a musical sensation in Uganda following the release of his “Lagos to Kampala” and “Bend Down Pause” songs both featuring WizKid. This has put him on our radar and while following his moves, we saw a unique one being his latest video release entitled “Mad Over You.” This song stands out in many aspects from an Afro touch in the lyrics and instrumental, to the African inspired fashion portrayed in the video.

The video has made rounds online and has racked up over 2.6 million views on YouTube and the song has also made it to the billboard music chart and is currently at No. 38. Chano8 managed to get in touch with Ifeanyi Nwune, a fashion designer from Nigeria who was behind the art and wardrobe direction in the video.

The Interview:

About

Ifeanyi Nwune is a menswear fashion designer, stylist, and creative director from Nigeria. He is also Runtown’s creative manager.

What did it feel like styling this video?

It was a great experience. We have worked on several projects before but this one felt different, bigger and special. It was a lot more interesting because of the work involved in it.

Was the fashion concept yours or Runtown’s as a client?

He had a concept for an African high fashion shoot video and he wanted African models dressed in African wear. So all I had to do was refine it and bring it to life.

Did you study fashion?

I have never studied fashion but I have been doing this for 4 years.
