Skiibii and Davido’s “Baddest Boy Remix” video is arguably one of the best Nigerian music videos we’ve seen in recent times. From a modest record to a smashing hit, much of that credit must go to fast rising director, Kemz for his brilliant use of camera and lighting.
Essentially, point of views (POVs) and lighting are the two main blocks of filmography. One thing is to have a really good concept, but the harder part is to be able to execute that concept by getting the camera placements and ambience spot on.
In “Baddest Boy,” Kemz does a great job in every department; producing some of the best POVs you will find in a music video. Some of the notable ones include the constant birds-eye view, sideways tilting of the camera, constant close-up view, the ground-up view, and this one time back-side view of Davido and the male vixens below. Kemz concept is also endearing and stays true to the song’s intentions.
How many times have we seen Davido boss a music video performance? Countless is the answer, not forgetting that he gave us “Dami Duro” in 2012, a film that was well ahead of its time.
The costuming in “Baddest Boy” also adds to why we love the movie, a bad boy of a music video indeed. The mafia-esque, matrix-like tuxes donned by the male vixens add class to the video. Not forgetting subtle use of female vixens and props- we just cannot get enough of “Baddest Boy Remix” visuals.
