Kenyan band Sauti Sol have given fans a behind-the-scenes glimpse into life on the set of their biggest hit yet, ‘Melanin’, which features Nigeria’s Patoranking.
The video footage takes us on location in Victoria Island, Lagos and features cutaway shots of capturing the scenes of the music video. We see the length and breadth of backdrops, props, costumes, effects such as ‘artificial’ rainfall as well as the bevy of beauties and the dancers that each made the single a memorable one.
The group chose to spread their pan-African footprint with ‘Melanin’ and ‘Girl Next Door’ being shot on location in West Africa’s most populated country, Nigeria. We have the prolific Clarence Peters to thank for bringing to life what we can see in the footage in this just released clip. He’s a visual artist who’s expressed numerous Sauti Sol hits, and it seems he will continue to do so.

‘Melanin’ was such a colossal hit that we can forgive Savara for a slip of the tongue in this video, saying that it was Patoranking’s shoot. Watch the footage below…
