How to survive meeting your in-laws: a short film starring Kiss Daniel

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.

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

giphy (18)
Well show up… no need to try to be fancy with all that braveness nonsense

Even though in your mind, you’re thinking this could happen

giphy (19)
Oh no

You face them and pour your heart out

“It was just one time sah” “Eskis sir, izz the condom that was fake sah” “Birth control lost control sah” “But I love your daughter sah”

Lucky for you, they’re like
