Forget about the controversy of why didn’t he perform at the 2018 world cup finals? and his war of words with fellow artiste A Pass. After some good time of creating awareness about his new video on his social media platforms, multi-talented singer and CEO Mpaka Records Ykee Benda finally dropped the video to his ‘Onabaayo’ tune on Friday the 20th of July.
About the Audio
‘Onabaayo’ which is Luganda for ‘Will You Be There’ is another Dancehall banger whose audio Benda released months ago. Produced by Nessim of Short Gun Sounds and it has a simple story line in which he is asking his tight friends with whom he always hangs out with whether they will be heading to their usual hang out spot
It has been a long day and he feels like spending the evening with his friends as they drink and have fun together like there is no tomorrow. He stresses his point in lyrics like “if you could just let it go, nywa ku wine brother sip that bottle, naku yajjo Sanyu leero, never mind don’t you worry about tomorrow” .
What starts like a hanging out plot later turns into a house party as we see Benda waking up from what seems like a nap and holds his phone to text his friends and let them know about the party he decides to throw for them. Shortly, his friends make their way to house where he works as a house keeper, thus kicking off the party in style
Benda and his friends are in real party moods and this is seen through the dance moves they are pulling, while sipping of different drinks which are there for anyone’s consumption. Amongst the people at this party is Benda’s sexy girlfriend whom he gives all the attention as they are seen cosying up in romantic moments which both seem to be enjoying, leaving the other friends who are doing their own things at this fun filled house party
The party later gets more interesting as they drink and party themselves silly, blacking out to an extent that they all fall dead asleep in the sitting room, with some still holding alcohol bottles. At this moment, Ykee Benda has forgotten that he is a house keeper whose boss is arriving anytime soon.
In the concluding scenes of this 3 minutes and 8 second video directed by Nigeria’s Sesan who is one of Africa’s best video directors, Ykee Benda’s boss together with his wife return home only to find dead asleep people in the house. On realising the boss’ presence They all run out of the house in fear and later Benda returns to apologise to his boss.
‘Onabaayo’ video follows yet another one to his hit song ‘Amina’ which having a good airplay both on radio, TV stations as well as fans’ music playlists.
