Singer Olu Maintain caused a mini stir on social media when he declared himself the best music video director in Africa. The declaration was quite shocking due to the fact that several music lovers were unaware that he directed music videos.
The Yahooze singer made this statement during an interview on HipTv’s “The Gist”. The interview involved a discussion about the music industry and what it takes to make it in the industry. Mr Olu was interviewed alongside rapper, Eedries Abdulkareem.
If we are to judge by Olu Maintains’s past videos (assuming he directed them all), I would say Olu is a pretty decent director. But to declare himself best in Africa? That’s pretty ballsy. It’s not like we have worthy contenders for the title of Best Music Video Director in Nigeria, but still. When last did he even release a hit track?
Viewers of the show took to social media to express their bafflement and disbelief
