VIDEO: Ruggedman ft Flavour N'Abania - Ebemsi

Ruggedy baba has just released the video for "Ebemsi" which happens to be my favourite song off his "Untouchable" album. Flavour blesses the tune in a way only he can. "HipHop meets Highlife" seems to be the way forward for Naija music. No song built off this genre combination has fallen short, and this is no exception.

Directed by Emeka Obefe.

@sergent & jude : Some time haters ignorance becomes frightening to me...... Can both of u explain how a song that talks about where you are from thus ur VILLAGE or state of origin supposed to look like? Do both of you no d meaning of ''EBEMSI''? well it means ''WHERE AM FROM'' so how do u expect it to look like? if u must castigate give reasons so u wont sound stupid .....

it pays to understand ones comment before passing remarks. The lyrics are def on point but the video quality SUCK-S... I've met rugged on a few occasions and hes a very intelligent and well spoken dude but this vid quality doesn't help his status. Hes been in the game for quiet sometime now and shlda mastered the trade. @vichasdmagnum, wake up its 2011 and we have worse artiste shooting better quality videos. The quality has nothing to do with the location its just really poor and depressing..

@optical: explain ur self by low budget video......Do u expect to see some flashy things like big cars every where or skyscrapers houses ? how do u mean low budget when someone is explaining the meaning of his song tru video for those who dont know what EBEMSI means...Well in IBGO language it means "WHERE AM FROM" so what do u expect to see that u cant find in the video? If u hate somfin make sure u have a reason to do so....To me this Video is ONPOINT good concept and nice costumes too, the story line was on… Read more »

Poor picture quality huh ur ignorance is so so frightening.......How do u expect a picture that shows how interior a Village should look like come out so cool? like u reason wit ur nose or kidney i guess .....My advice for u is this, quietly go and learn cinematography as profession to help educate this frightening ignorance of urs than making ur foolishness INTERNATIONAL exhibiting it on a public site or social network.........Point of correction is not @vischasdmagnum is @vichasdmagum roger that idiot thats my twit-handle so u can follow me on twitter so i can educate u more........olodo oshi

@NwaDiala apparently u do not know d context in which I used d word 'fraud', @neo sayin ruggedman is wack and retarded is passin him a compliment, @efiko seeing as u r ruggedman himself I'll just say d industry don't need u, clown! u wack like a mafia hit. y'all can reply but pls refrain frm writin 'hate'. pity ppl only use dat word wen u say stuff (the truth) they don't wanna hear.

@vichasdmagnum, Well...what people complain about the video it is not about the location or the concept but it is all about the quality...I believe if CAPITAL or DJTEE and some other cool top video directors shoot in the same location of this video...then maybe you will really understood what guys are complain about. It is not about flash or travel to SA to shoot the video before people know you used the best quality stuff! Abeg! all the ruggedman's video always look below his standard. I know you people watched Tuface "ONLY ME" video. Maybe that would give an example… Read more »
