After a long hiatus, Nonso Amadi, makes a return with the video for his new track, “Foreigner”, which was released last week.
Directed by Jordan Lee and shot in Toronto, the music video for Foreigner, offers a glimpse into Nonso’s new world that is bold and sophisticated, putting Nonso in the spotlight. The deep color juxtapositions blend seamlessly in the captivating video which reflects the layers of the track itself while celebrating Nonso’s heritage.
Director, Jorden Lee describes the ideation behind the visual, “the core of the video lies within Nonso’s deep connection to his African culture and we wanted to represent it in a way that was true to him. Through our choreography, wardrobe, color, and tones, we tried to capture the essence of his roots while putting our own modern spin on it.” The track itself showcases Nonso’s duality, a smooth and seductive record that contains African drumlines, trance-like saxophone instrumentation, and is layered with other soulful jazz elements.
