Soldier is not music video but musical film – Falz
Nigerian singer and comedian, Falz who was recently unveiled as a nominee for the 2016 BET Awards Viewers Choice in a recent interview revealed the inspiration behind his mainstream music video titled Soldier. The video was short like a movie and it has generated wide acclaim from music pundits.
”We decided to pick the song, Soldier because it has a narrative. We decided to make a big story out of it and then expanded it. We did not want to make it a normal music video but a short musical film, because its 15 minutes .That was how we conceived the idea. I had a meeting with Clarence Peters, after then he went back to his team. The video was shot in Epe. We spent two nights shooting the video.”
