Hennessy Artistry’s Bartender Music Video Drops.
On Friday 17 August, the music video for 2012 Hennessy Artistry’s theme song, Bartender, featuring two of Africa’s best hip hop artistes, M.I and Naeto C, will premiere on popular global music channel Trace Urban.
The new music video shot and directed by acclaimed video director, Clarence Peters, was delivered on 13 August, and has been described as very exciting and will arguably set a higher standard for music video-making in Nigeria.
“It’s a collage of different set pieces, with emphasis on Hennessy culture, styling and values. Hennessy as a premium brand and the headliners - M.I and Naeto C - are also top notch, so we have created something that complements the brand and personalities while making sure it’s fun and spontaneous. In the video, everyone just blends and flows, and I’m sure the fans will like the result,” Peters said.
Showbiz Trends learnt that following the video release, the Hennessy Artistry Club tour will kick off on 31 August and will hold in Lagos, Abuja and Port Harcourt.
Joining M.I and Naeto C on the club tour will be a group of Nigeria’s most promising up and coming artistes.
Hennessy Cognac uses the Artistry as a platform to support rising music stars and in previous years, has given an undeniable edge to artistes like Ice Prince and Tiwa Savage.
Previous participating headliners include Sir Shina Peters, Nneka, Banky W, eLDee, Jesse Jagz, Mo’Cheddah among others.
