    9ice d concept s and style is dynamic

    Nice concept for the video but the ending only shows that Dubi is just singing about all these things but really doesn't live in the situation as he claims to in the song. The closing scene depicts a lot of hypocritical connotations because at the end of the day, we are shown that Dubi lives a luxury life which an average Nigerian doesn't. In summary, the video tells me that he spoke for the suffering masses through the video, but at the end he is not even one of them.

    Hmm… for what it is, the video is okay but honestly it won't be remembered for long
    This video comes short in several departments
    the picture quality and shot framing could be better
    BUT… I think such a nostalgic song deserves both colour and brightness
    My major problem is the inconsistency in the grades
    the quality seemed to dip at that point
    Location/art dept: Because a location looks good to the eye doesn't mean it will look good on camera.
    Personally, I do NOT like the video. Lighting quality dropped below that of Dami Duro and Chidinma's video
    Not a lot to keep me watching it
    I really don't care how much sweat has been put into the video
    In all, it seemed like a great effort but lost me along the way
    You are as good as your last job
    The days of being "local champion" are over#
    You need a lot of work to keep up with the well-improved music videos that are being churned out, especially in 2012.

    NOT A SINGLE LETTER WAS TYPED TO MAKE THIS COMMENT EXCEPT WHAT U ARE NOW READING IN CAPS. THE COMMENT IS COPIED AND PASTED ENTIRELY FROM SOJI'S OWN COMMENTS ON OTHER VIDS. ENJOY THE BITTER TASTE OF UR OWN LETHAL MEDICINE. U SUCK BALLS!!!

  8. video detective says:

    hahaha after all soji's comments this is wat he came up with….lol…:( was actually expecting way better. poor lighting in some scenes and inconsistency in the colour grading. attention to details..a lil extra time to print out that bsc 1st class n make it look abit real wont have killed you. the 1000 bills..clearly stuffed with paper/ poor cg. the fight between the couple, cutting the scene @2:24 instead of 2:25 would have covered d air slap..was that guy 3:00 drawing a tattoo or doing chemical testings.. overall, okay video..keep up the good work

  9. dapo says:

    heheh segun wey d light,wey d colour wey d edition.Na wa o hahahahahah

  10. Valentine says:

    Poorly executed, a lot of tacky scenes and mediocre approach towards conceived ideas, nice song though.

  11. 9jafreak says:

    I remember this guy from #OCUUPY Nigeria

    He has a good heart and matches it with some rare ingenuity!

    I'll be looking forward to laying me hands on his work in the future

  12. dami duro says:

    soji…..is this it? i really expected a lot after all the criticism in the past..nothing can impress you.. this video is purely amateurish and wackkkkk…i hope u fail as a video director cos you couldnt pull this one off. and now that u have failed i wonder where that leaves the career of this young man Dubie. he has just made a fatal error by choosing u to shoot his debut video…..GOD punish you fucker!!!!!!!

  13. charles ben says:

    this is crap….Soji you shld be dragged outside and flogged then shot without a camera….i mean with a real gun

  14. pixarnaija says:

    soooojjjiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii….u just wrecked my valentine

    whut is this garbage?

  15. BANGER BOI!!! says:

    perfect song!, but stupid video!……………….the most stupid ive seen this yr for such a great song…

  16. gerald says:

    SOJI,

    one word

    RETARD!!!!

  17. aristo says:

    who let a 5yr old with a down syndrome recently finding a camera hobby shoot a video…na wa o…dubbie we had so much more expectation, even if u no get money to shoot video there's always a more talented person to work with now…did u see anything else this monkey director shot before now?

  18. tee says:

    hahahaha mr soji finally we get to see your hand work eh..all i can say is,its not a memorable video,so i wont even watch it twice..

  19. Chimera says:

    @Soji
    Also, what does the "RED" candle on the green and white national cake symbolize???

    to the best of my knowledge, red candles are burned during romantic dinners and for Valentine's Day to

    symbolize love, attraction and desire. Furthermore, Red candles are frequently burned at Christmas as a

    part of the traditional Christmas colors of red and green.

    In astrology, red candles conjure the strong, fiery characteristics of the signs of Scorpio and Aries, as

    both are strong-willed signs that evoke physical and mental strength and energy.

    i heard my friend Soji posted up a video he directed /Decided 2 check it out..hmmmmm SMH.. this is is the guy that RIDICULES other ppl WORK on a constant /regular basis ..SO he should KNOW WHAT HE IS DOING !!.. Well the concept behind the video is not bad/i like the stop motion efx on the candle and cake //not bad//WHERE the video failLS is in the LIGHTING //EDITING and PICTURE COMPOSITION (which was very basic and amateurish @ certain times) PLUS the FINAL OVERALL EXECUTION was particularly WEAK.
    0:33 TO 0:35 The Eyelid Transition :Soji please next time try 2 keep your camera in static position//or d same position u took d 1st shot//the items (eg the tv) in d 1st shot can change but the positions should REMAIN the SAME
    0:52 Showing the actual PIKIN DEY HOLLA guy is very CHEESY..Plus if u r following the lyrics verbatim word 4 word u might as well have used stock /library footage .for the case of political and religious crisis parts of his lyrics
    1:01 the BSC certificate HAND WRITTEN ???(guy pls pay attention 2 details or better still leave it out if it can't b represented properly)
    1:26 to 1:28 hw can u cut from a mid close up to another mid close up??dodgy editing
    2:16 wat does a husband and wife fighting(even metaphorically ) have 2 do with d song??(which is talkin abt d state of d station)
    2:26 d freeze frame on the slap is POINTLESS considering the angle of d shot..coz i can't c d impact(mayb this would have wrk better if the the shot was 4rm A different PERSPECTIVE eg 1st person view of d WIFE perhaps)
    2:33 PLASTIC FLOWERS in a VASE (4 WAT??
    2:43 the costume 4 d TATTOO ARTISTS COSTUME(VISORS a gas mask and WHITE OVERALLS ????) 4 WHICH TATTOO parlor ?? Na SPRAY PAINT(dude pay attention to details abeg some things even in fantasy can be UNREALISTIC
    3:11 FOR SOMEONE who regularly complains aBt LIGHTING ABEG 1ST REMOVE the log in your EYE ///COZ those shots r really poorly lit
    plus The Performances OF THE CHOIR and the LADY on the GUITAR are just WEAK (VERY POOR DIRECTING …)
    IS THIS WAT SOJI OGUNNAIKE CONSIDERS AS INTERNATIONAL STANDARD ??CAN THIS VIDEO WIN ANY AWARD ON ANY PLATFORM??CAN THIS VIDEO RECEIVE CONSTANT ROTATION ON ANY TV CHANNEL based solely on the quality of the video??ALL due respect TO DUBIE but would anY ARTIST REALLY WANT SOJI to direct their next VIDEO ???DOES ANYONE REALLY THINK AFTER WATCHING HIS WORK DAT THIS GUY IS REALLY AN AUTHORITY TO CRITICIZE ANYBODY WORK??
    It one thing 4 ppl to think u r stupid but its another to OPEN YOUR MOUTH and con firm it…pls REALTALK /LASTMA KILLER and FERONICATION learn 4RM your fellow Critic or better still emulate him and direct videos 2 // SOJI OGUNNAIKE U R TRULY A PATHETIC HUMAN BEING …DUBIE YOU AND YOUR MANAGEMENT MADE A BAD DECISION/CHOICE ..too bad 4 your SONG..I REMEMBER YOUR VIDEO with BUSTA RHYMES (wait who directed dat video again????lol i rest my case)

      • L.A.S.T.M.A Killa says:

        u like my video? ;-)…….bro, u can't coax me enough to pick this vid apart. You and the hordes of really pissed off and crazy contributors have done a sterling job of brutalizing Soji already. I'm actually feeling sorry for the guy, see vexment. However, after reading the director's treatment on offer, the video i visualized is rather meatier than the actual rendition. Wish there was a pacifist way to say it leaves more to be desired.

      • ynow says:

  22. Methical says:

    Frankly, i dont think the video is that bad, but for someone that comes and constantly criticizes other directors, u did a clearly awful job worthy of condemnation. Damn video, Patrick Ellis’ cuts (which i really think is average) are even better than this crap.

  26. I appreciate all the comments, especially those from ynow but I implore you to read the director's treatment here to see the thought process: http://www.sojiogunnaike.com/2012/02/10/betrayal-
    The video isn't perfect, I know…

    • ynow says:

      U r welcome boss..but chairman hw many of the other directors (that u have criticized) have this opportunity 2 explain themselves. WHAT MAKES YOUR CASE SPECIAL OR DIFFERENT??IF we goin 2 b fair to all the other DIRECTORS …ppl will only comment based on the QUALITY of the work they have seen and u have decided to put your NAME TO// at least YOU HAVE GOTTEN A TASTE of hw the DIRECTORS U CRITICIZE feel WHEN U AND AND YOUR cohorts R lambasting their WORK. i only HOPE this will make you more CONSIDERATE next time u decide 2 comment on ANYONE'S WORK

      • Erm… I totally disagree with you. I have said it before, objective criticism only makes your work better. Nobody likes others to say negative things about their hard work, I agree but it doesn't mean the work is perfect. I have read the several comments and have learnt from the ones that make sense. In my blog you would read that I don't particularly like doing music videos and my reason is because the viewers already have their own "idea" of what music videos should look like. When one tries to be different, it is an issue.
        I have put myself, my name and my work out there for criticism. How many others are willing? If you don't get genuine reactions to stuff then you are a "local champion"

      • ynow says:

        so basically u will continue 2 LAMBAST OTHER PPL WORK EVEN THOUGH U CANNOT PRODUCE ANYTHING BETTER..OK I i get u boss…keep up the good work or the bad work as the case maybe lol

      • ynow says:

        (In my blog you would read that I don't particularly like doing music videos and my reason is because the viewers already have their own "idea" of what music videos should look like. When one tries to be different, it is an issue. )) could this statement or argument b applied to other videos u critique ???if we are being OBJECTIVE HERE ….COULD IT JUST BE BY YOUR OWN ADMITTANCE THAT the only PROBLEM with d videos ia dat they appear to be different 4rm thE EXPECTATIONS of the VIEWERS ( WHICH INCLUDES YOU)

      • Now I also can enlist my haters and YNOW is at the top of the list lol. Comments from an individual on this site CANNOT affect either airplay of acceptability of the video. They are just opinions.

        wow! this dude "spleen eater" means bizness

      • Wow! So much anger. You need to cool down as might be the one to get the heart attack first. It is obvious you personally know me. Either you learn from sites and criticism or you remain an inconspicuous speck in the industry.
        Relevance is key my friend.

    Soji Ogunnaike is getting chewed up pretty bad on here lmaooo, great song, good video concept, but execution could have been better.

  28. Chuckster says:

    Its interesting how much one can learn simply from reading reviews such as this.

  29. Critic hat on!
    I would like to critique my own video :)
    – After editing, I didn't like some scenes, the outdoor scenes with the fire didnt work for me at all. The lighting wasn't good. – Logistic reasons and all.
    – The girl with the guitar didn't work for me as she didn't play it as she was supposed to – the original guy just didnt show up.
    – The props (placards and BSc certificate) were shit – yeah some dude left them at the office
    – the tattoo didnt look good – LESSON: permanent marker is a bad alternative for oily skin.

    Thanks guys for coming out to comment and critique this video. But my question is "WHY DON'T YOU ALL CRITIQUE EVERY VIDEO LIKE THIS?" It is what the industry needs.

    • Ice Princess 2 says:

      nonsense nna sharap dia wit dis u USELESS gimik.u no fit decief ppl wit dis shit// crap director=crap works.u sabi all dis tins dem n u kukuma stil public d job.i bow to u o.omo go watch totorial lern beta work.ok so we don dey expot our job nw.ruthless dey tidy am 4 studio ryt nw.if u get mind com yarn shit wen dem drop am online.wegodeclare WAR. we have d manpower and d machine dem too.

    chai 9ja peeps can criticise sha… anyways i love dis track… like d video.. n nice one jare SOJI… Ermmm i think i c anoda raising 9ja Ninja :)

  31. Chuma Osita says:

    This Soji is just a jonzer. critiquing himself … how lame, accept ur correction and learn… u’ll actually think ur the best in these zones. guess what? i think you are too…lwkmd… u must actually be a proud fack!

  32. DickInYoEarBitch says:

    Nice criticism on here,note taken I been reading alot on here on videos for a long as* while.From a viewer stand point..I was ecstatic when I saw soji dropped a video.Hopin’ to see some hype williams type video I clicked on the link…and boy for a dude with a big mouth like he has got its only natural he swallows his B.S. For some who crushes Clarence’s videos & drops this crap?Jeez! u in the wrong buisness best stick to marriage & birthday coverage..Events rings a bell don’t it?Fucktard!Hand faller

  33. Chuckster says:

    So it's obvious that most people haven't accepted the fact that objective criticism is necessary to improve any creative industry. The fact that Soji critiques your work doesn't mean he hates you neither does it suggest that he is better than anyone else. Only the audience can judge that. in the mean time, we need to embrace a culture of objective criticism as this is the only path continuous improvement. I agree with some of the points made against this video, however by and large, I believe it's very different from a host of videos out there and it does convey the message in an interesting and engaging style. Evaluate the video not the director.

  34. Dubie says:

    loooool….***Singing**** Naija i de hail oh!, una no de fail oh….. lwkmd. Haba! soji has lost so much blood already oh, una wan kill am? lol. you guys are ever ready.lol. in case you were wondering, Yes it is me DUBIE (band leader of the pulse) and it’s my video. lol. But really guys Thanks for even having the time to constructively criticize this video, but let us also remember that i am in the music business because you spent your time and money to ensure my victory in the star quest competition, i only hereby ask that you “protect your investment” lol by giving me all the support i need against all odds. i know say una don de wait sote sote sote for soji to fall enter this trap but trust me, one more yab to that young man might result in a fatal cardiac arrest, lol. So guys,in the sprit of St. valentine, With my knees on the ground and my two hands up…. SHOW SOME LOVE TO A BROTHER…….

    • Dubie I appreciate your having my back here but I ask, is it really necessary? The "TruthisBitter" as we all know and we might as well live with it.
      I DO NOT NEED ANY FORM OF LOVE FROM PEOPLE ON NOTJUSTOK. It is an open forum and should be treated as such, not people taking comments so personal. As for the comments on the video, some had a point but a lot were just personal attacks.
      Have a great day people. Right now I feel so attached to this site. Ovie should work on this oh! So much potential.

  35. fairisfair says:

    Irrespective of how we may or may not feel about his own effort it does not take away from the fact that 90 percent of comments previously posted by mr soji are spot on. The fact that he is bold enough to put himself up for criticism with this video shows he a genuine person with no hidden agenda. Saying that wonder how many of those criticising this video, would put their own effort up for valuation.

  36. sparko says:

    see tattoo artist de wear gas mask and lab coat den see smoke lol na science experiment

  37. Dear Friend Soji,

    There is one thing you have succeeded in doing here. You have removed the attention from the artiste and its all on you. I think its a bit unfair to the artiste. People only watched to find fault. I personally think its a good video (knowing what it takes to put one together).

    Publicity is the main reason why videos are sent to NJO. 1 single negative comment can sway the minds of viewers. What i do is take note of the mistakes in any video and add it to my list of things to avoid. if i know the director personally i contact them about it. But i think leaving certain negative comments under a video whether constructive or not, harms the artiste more than it harms the director.

    Lets see more from you Bro. I enjoyed the video.

    • Adasa, honestly you are a practitioner I have come to respect so much. You see reason before acting based on impulse. I also agree with you about the attention but it is NOT my fault na. Commenters on NJO were just waiting for me to fall into their "trap" but the truth is NOBODY that has commented on this site can as much as taint my career. We need to learn from criticism, like I have learnt from this video.
      But I also disagree with you as regards comments harming the artiste. Constructive criticism bring harm to NOBODY. They are just lessons for the director to learn from, if he/she is willing to.

      • Soji,

        Ii went from being an artiste to being a director. i know what one mans opinion can do. Its all about perception.

        Regarding your career. A king is still king because his subjects say he is.
        You don't know who reads these blogs. You don't know who you will offend with a comment. It might Just be the person that would have giving you a big break.

        FYI, Google indexes some of these comments, a prospect might want to check you out before hiring and see negative statements about you and your work.

        Anyway, be yourself my brother. Good video. God bless.

      • Deep stuff bro. Well said. But you see, I believe more in hardwork than anything. I don't care about being a king. I do NOT need subjects. My harshest comment on this site is actually on your video and you took the comments the most likely. Why are my comments taken so personal?
        I always appreciate constructive criticism. It is rather sickening when all the comments on ALL the videos say "Great work." or "Good" or "Awesome". We are NOT that great yet and we know it. Let us all strive towards getting THERE.

      • ikwere boy says:

        Adasa gbagboo this guy nwokem. This Soji guy has nothing good to offer you and common sense he doesnt have. Aiye po gan according to ill bliss. U dont need work or recommendation from him your success is on ur own steam. Leave him to finish digging his own grave.

    Mehn! I really don’t give a shit about all the comments here, I have a huge crush on this Dubie dude, he’s freaking HOOOOOOOOOT! And he’s got rare talent too. So all you guys condemning the video just remember that he’s the green grass that suffers when elephants fight….

  47. Chuma Osita says:

    just stick to what u do Soji, dont shoot any music videos again since u prefer critiquing other peoples work…. as a matter of fact, i dont see any artist coming to you for a music video after seeing all this hate… smh

  48. Plato says:

    Soji, Either ur a genius or pure idiot, responding to every comment on NJO, i wonder how many video directors come over here to defend themselves… Ode oshi,

    • I love replying to comments on NJO as a psychological evaluation exercise. Eases off steam after some hassle with corporate clients. Like I have said, I have developed a soft spot for this site. Quite unusual for me…

      • S & O says:

        Hello Soji,
        Good tidings to you. Although have never left a comment on this website and i scarcely have the time to meddle with these sorts of things due to the nature of my Job i am deeply moved to do so. I am very familiar with you and your work and as such i am deeply disappointed at your conduct and your handling of this issue. You have seriously brought your professionalism into question and i don't mind telling you it will most certainly have negative consequences on our future dealings. While i would have preferred not to expose this to my peers, unfortunately they were the ones that directed me here. In future please learn not to underestimate the power of the internet and respect the fact that someone is always watching. It is to my utmost disdain that you have failed to recognise the fact that people in the volatile media business do interact with us on the other side. It would be shortsighted to think this little fiasco has not lost you at least one job. It has certainly erased my confidence. I wish you all the best in your future endeavours.

        Best Regards

      • I appreciate your taking time out of your schedule to express yourself on this site. But I think a personal email would have passed the message clearer instead of an anonymous post here.
        Firstly, I don't understand why you term this as an "issue" because I basically posted a video and people, rather than watch and critique the video, used it as an opportunity to personally insult me. This is a music/entertainment site (an industry I hardly partake in).
        Secondly, how has my conduct here brought my professionalism to question? I'm just having my fun here and you do know that in the media industry, sometimes stirring up a little storm is needed.
        And lastly, why would my so-called "conduct" on this site cause any client of mine not to commission a job to me/my company? It obviously means that such a client does NOT commission jobs based on merit in the first place.
        Have a great day sir.

  49. David oseghale says:

    i've been reading all these comments and ive come to realize that there's a lot of personal issues going on here.we have been told to evaluate the video, NOT THE DIRECTOR. i think ya'll should judge based on the artist, lyrics of the song, and most importantly the video and NOT BASED ON WHAT THE DIRECTOR HAS SAID ABOUT OTHER VIDEOS. Pride and sentiments aside, Words cannot explain how i feel every time i'm opportuned to listen or watch Dubie do his thing, and we cannot deny the fact that this video is far far far better than most of the video we see everyday. The concept of the cassock on a camo pant (representing peace and war) was maaaaad! i personally give this video a general rating i.e (concept, lyrics,delivery and quality) 7/10. More power to your elbows Dubie!

  50. chinedu okeke says:

    looool. @soji, i must confess i respect you. you have taken a very bold step, risked your name and all to bring your job to the slaughter house. i personally think that these peeps have not really understood your cause, for you to post your video here on NJO it tells me a lot that you have nothing against these other Directors and that you are not saying you are better that anyone but want to kick start healthy criticism in the Naija entertainment industry. follow ur heart, thats what happens to inventors all over the world. the video is good and i think it shuld win awards.

    • ikwere boy says:

      1 million thumbs down for you. Soji quickly submitted the video to notjustok after somebody went all out to search for his work based on his big mouth and post a link for everybody to see. when last did you seen so much heat on one person on notjustok? its because of his big mouth and unnecessary pride and lack of real skills and methods.kickstarting healthy cricism or whatever u call it is good but he is the wrongest man for the job. you just keep wasting your respect on the biggest fool online and streets.no problem

      • One thing is for sure, there are some objective commenters here on NJO. I was beginning to fear for the industry. @Ikwere Boy, the link had been in Ovie's mailbox for a bit and I'm sure the team had a lot of videos to sort through before posting.
        Point of correction, I AM NOT ON THE STREETS…

      • chinedu okeke says:

        @ikwere boy… YOU ARE A PATHETIC RETARDED HALF WIT AND A GOOD FOR NOTHING BASTARD for you to think that even you have the moral right to criticize this video. at least soji has experience, unlike your useless self dat cannot even make a video on your cheap china phone to save your life. Obo Oshi. msthewwwww!!!!!!

  51. angela says:

    i personally feel that there’s no such thing as bad publicity, what ever you feel about the video does not change the fact that this video is being watched by a whole lot of people ryt now. and also its a good thing that nobody has criticized the artist or the song. @SPLEEN EATER, you don’t have to go all gangster on this soji guy,cursing and threatening like a Boko haram spokesman, NA SOJI GET HIM MOUTH and its his personal oppinion, so deal with it…..

  52. Segun Ohideh says:

    QUESTION???????…………. HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN HONESTLY SAY, AND BE TRUE TO YOURSELVES THAT THIS VIDEO IS WACK EVEN IF IT WASN'T SOJI THAT SHOT THE VIDEO????????

  54. angela says:

    @ A.Y…. iT WAS NOT BAD PUBLICITY THAT AFFECTED TIGER WOODS,IT WAS SIMPLY BECAUSE HE WAS LISTENING TO SIDE TALKS AND UNNECESSARY CRITICS, OF WHICH HE HAD A CHOICE WHETHER OR NOT TO LISTEN.

  55. lnel says:

    Lets be honest, people who are bashing the video are only doing so because they know who the director is. That isn't objestive criticism and that isn't mature.
    I like the video. I love the concept. It's not perfectly executed, but conceptualluy it creates the mood and passes the message clearly and with creativity.
    More importantly, whay aren't you people talking about the great song?
    If you must criticise Soji's work, it is allowed and that's how we all grow, but it must not be done out of spite… what are we teenager?

    Thanks to all you jealous haters for creating more publicity for the song and video. Eat shit and fucking die losers. Nice song, lyrics and amazing video.

  68. Hillary says:

    Everyone has a right to his artistic expression, as a creative artiste, I am not answerable to d critiqs. this long thread is a big lesson, that instead of wasting time analysing other pples work destructively,try to improve yourself. if u go into any work to find mistakes, u will surely find it.I dont create my work for everybody(not even the Beatles did) to me Monalisa Painting is trash, but it is still one of d most recognised universally. critisizing doesnt make u an authority, it makes u look like a jealous mug. the best way to prove someone has done trash is for u to produce a better one, arm chair critics are only toothless bulldogs, they can bark, but cannot bite.

    • Nobody says any artist is answerable to critics. The job of the critic is to publicly express his/her opinion on any work of art, regardless of whether he/she can do better.
      If, like you claim, you aren't answerable to my critiques, why do you bother commenting on them?
