Below is the official video for “Pempe” by Seyi Shay and Yemi Alade. The video which was directed by the ever famous Clarence Peters exemplifies the dynamic collaboration between the two vocal power houses. This tune is the first official effort from Seyi this month, it follows after previous tracks like “Murda,” “Tuale” and “Gimme Love(Rmx)”.
“Pempe” is an infectious and vibrant Afrobeats track mixed and mastered by the skilled producer, Kel P. This tune is an exuberant piece collectively delivered and perfected by both songstresses to the appreciating of their fans. Seyi Shay is not new to the music scene in any way – long before now, she was the lead singer of “From Above” band, a band that supported Beyoncé while she was on her “I AM” tour in the UK. She also released a self titled album after that period.
“Pempe” is taken from Seyi Shay’s forthcoming EP dubbed Big Girl. The title of this song is taken off the Nigerian street lingo meaning hot lady. With most of the lyrics being rendered in Nigerian Pidgin English, the duo seeks to properly depict the female experience – Seyi dealing with a cheating and dishonest lover, and Yemi expressing the uncomfortable situation in dealing with unwanted attention and interests. The tune carries great potentials and is good enough to sit in the chair of significant relevance, just as other tracks making waves now.
