Osagie Alonge on a new episode of Facts Only describes the video directed by a Nigerian named Daps as brilliantly minimalistic, with beautifully African themed dressing by the vixens in the video.

On Drake's absence, Osagie says "Maybe Drake didn't see Wizkid as a priority, but I need Nigerians, Wizkid fans to focus on the positives, the video gathered over a million views under 24 hours,'' adding that Drake has already given Wizkid a platform with 'Ojuelegba', 'One dance' and now 'Come closer', which the Nigerian pop star has utilized rightly so to create more openings for himself in the industry.

Wizkid's music direction going forward to break into the North American music market was then discussed among other talk involving Nigerian music.
