Ghana’s Volta superstar Edem has finally dropped a word on his heavily criticized over again video shot and directed by Nana Ashihene. A cross section of his fans and the entire Ghanaian populace has expressed misgivings about the video with many describing the final work as mediocre and not befitting an artiste of his calibre. In an exclusive interview on Ghana’s prime time entertainment news and analysis show on eTV hosted by Flexy, Edem admitted not being impressed with the video
stating clearly bad lighting, bad costuming and editing as the major setbacks for the video. He stated his dissatisfaction about the video and described it as not befitting the “Edem brand”. Director of Edem’s over again video, Nana Asihene on the same show entreated Ghanaians not to blame Edem for the video. Describing the video as a bad one and not being on point, he accepted full responsibility for the blunder committed with the video and pointed out clearly that attempts are
being made to salvage the video and the image of the artiste. However, Artiste manager, Bulldog also on Talk Showbiz called for the head of the director of the video, Nana Asihene and suggested a mob attack on Asihene. He also accused Edem for consenting to such a video which could tarnish his image forever. Ace video director Ezikeile Tetteh popularly known as Stip of Solid Multimedia who was also a guest on show chastised both Edem and Asihene for such a poor work.
He felt it was too late for the damage caused to be salvaged. Edem together with are Asihene are currently working on re shooting the video to come out with something close or better than what he did for Sarkodie ‘s Saa Okodie video. Bulldog, Stip and Asihene were all guest on Showbiz hosted by flexy last Tuesday as they did a review of Ghanaian music videos released this year to see if our Ghanaian music videos are close to perfection in terms of the technicalities involved, directing, editing, costumes, lighting etc.
