I run my brand and am supported by an amazing team but I want that message to translate into my songs’’.
Running for 5-minutes and over, the single’s visuals have the appeal of a Caravaggio masterpiece: shots are easy on the eye, embracing the use of muted warm colors which allow for a dramatic display of light and dark. Director, Lutch also lets fans get a piece of Valee Music and Charlie Kay’s chemistry in the thick of his shots, capping off the heated argument in the video’s early moments, after all – ‘’Everybody needs someone to love’’.
Hailing from London, Valerie Sibanda, aka Valee Music, is a talented Afro-Pop artist of Zimbabwean descent who’s a bold display of talent sprang from a very youthful age. Her sounds thus far present her journey as a fusion of her Southern African heritage and upbringing.
Following her cameo on Sarkodie’s single, ‘Do You’ featuring Mr. Eazi, Valee Music was recently credited as an additional cast member on Beyoncé’s Disney film ‘’Black is King’’. It seems the act has no intentions of slowing down and is just getting started, keen to impact the Afro-Pop music scene.
