Rob Ulitski - 8th July 2020

Meji Alabi turns up the heat for Tinie's new single Whoppa, featuring Mexican popstar Sofia Reyes and Columbian artist Farina.

The visual channels festival spirit for the ’lost summer’ of 2020, and was filmed in the streets of Mexico City.  Vibrant, colourful and energetic, the breathless concept features dynamic performance and exquisite art direction, ever-evolving from the first frame to the last. 

DoP Stefan Yap matches the celebratory vibes with busy composition, packed to the brim with a lively cast of extras and a stream of glitter, confetti and traditional props.
