I am rooting for Le Band with everything in me. I am also hoping they change their name at some point but maybe they like it so much, I don’t know. Anyway, love this song of theirs and even if at times I know I am not the target market for their music, I respect their hustle.
Now onto their video:
If you’ve followed me on twitter you know I think we should stop dancing in our music videos. Rarely is there a Kenyan urban music video where the dancing makes sense. This video is no different. The three ladies dancing are off. Also, the two gents dancing with Fidel are off. I have to say that Fidel does the dancing bit quite well and hats off to him. (please watch this recent video for how dancing works in a music video).
There are little things that need to be done better like wardrobe, make up, editing but I am being a bit soft on them because they are new-ish in the industry but I do hope that they continue to improve their craft (including vocal coaching).
And let me just say Fidel SHINES in this video. SHINES. Go on ahead, young man.
Le Band have been on my radar for a while so it was good news to hear they had a new video out featuring Khaligraph. I was hoping for something different, something unique. What did I get? A rather lacklustre video to be quite honest.

Lmao I’m so shocked. I thought that this song was universally disliked.
I thought the song was awful through and through. Probably should have cut it off as soon as Khaligraph was done. Even for Khaligraph this was a fart in the wind.
Dancing like that, in TOWN no less like this is a Chris Brown video circa 2003. Where is kanjo when you need them?
Voice coaching desperately,as well as a stylist… Unless they’re going for the H_art The Band “going after girls out of our league” aesthetic which if they are, never mind.
HAHAHA, I am seriously holding out all hope for these guys!!!
