There is something uniquely fantastic about Kiss Daniel. After winning our hearts with four singles that precluded an equally brilliant album, he’s back with a video for Jombo, one of the sleekest Afropop highlights of his acclaimed New Era album.
Once again, he proves himself as an adept storyteller who knows how to paint vivid imagery with his music. Jombo features a Kiss Daniel who loves his pregnant girlfriend but cannot find courage to bring himself his in-laws about his intentions. According to Kiss Daniel, this is how he survived his first encounter with the grandparents-to-be of his unborn child.
The first step is to stall of course
Especially after you see your father-in-law do this
And he looks at you like this on the first day he sees your skinny body
“Ordinary pregnant daughter, somebody cannor play with you again”
Mission abort! I repeat, Mission Abort!
You try another approach with the mother but what you see instead is a live action description of the phrase “when shit hits the fan”
You see the first one go down
And another one
By default, this is your next line of action
Not today Jesus, I’m not ready to walk towards the light.
But then you remember who you’re doing this for
Like a hengel in heaven
And how she makes you feel so good even wearing sneakers on agbada doesn’t feel like a crime against the universe
So you brave up and show up
Even though in your mind, you’re thinking this could happen
You face them and pour your heart out
Lucky for you, they’re like
And the rest is history from here.
