This is surely a song most Nigerians quietly hum in their spirits, but have not found the words to articulate it.
Adekunle delivers it succintly, helped by the infectious beats produced by Pheelz.
And we are loving the video too! Here are the things that stood out for us:
1. Gold tells a cliched story well: Don’t cross your fingers. This is your typical grass-to-grace story. But the difference is that Adekunle Gold manages to make it interesting.
2. Clean and clear clip: We absolutely love the picture quality of Pick Up’s video. There was no muddling, larger-than-life graphics or bright colours/light.
3. Decent fashion: Who knew Gold could put it on quite nicely? The crooner looked dapper in a neatly tailored double-breasted suit and his agbada.
4. Pick Up picks up pace: The audio of the song was already well received, but with a fine video to go with it now, you can sense that it is about to dominate the airwaves!
