Meji Alabi creates a chilled-out dreamworld for Wizkid to inhabit, in the vibrant promo for No Stress. 

Dripping with luxurious art direction and ethereal colour palettes, the visual is gorgeous to look at, boasting high-energy performance and super-glossy cinematography from the redoubtable Stefan Yap. 
 

MEJI ALABI:

Wiz is such a great performer you get so much in a few takes... necessary when MoCo is involved. 

"Had a lot of fun shooting this with Wizkid in London. The models were great to work with and Stefan Yap (DoP) made them look even more amazing.

"Wiz has so much charisma and is such a great performer you get so much in a few takes that you can move on quickly - which is necessary when Moco is involved!

"Thankfully, the team at G6 Moco were a pleasure to work with as we were making adjustments and programming some of the moves on the fly.

"We ran the final cut through a 35mm film process (print to film) which Jonny Tully literally finessed into something quite special!"
