WizKid 'Joro' by Adriaan Louw
He's in Lagos, and she's in London, but WizKid can still make the girl move, in Adriaan Louw's latest video for the Afrobeat star.
The second videos for two new WizKid tracks - following Ghetto Love, released in September - the concept of the video for Joro is based on the idea that WizKid uses his music to create a spiritual connection with people around the world. And in this case, he connects with a female protagonist in London, causing her to progressively unwind her performance in a series of beautifully captured dance moves.
This concept is symbolic of the growth and power that West African music is currently having on a global scale, and at the same time also showcases its roots within London. The Joro video features London-based actress and dancer Georgia Curtis - herself of Nigerian and Spanish descent - who elegantly connects with WizKid's music, firstly on a deserted nighttime street, then in a beauty parlour, and finally in a more theatrical set-up.
