Yemisi Fancy’s #MyMainlandDiary: My First Ever Music Video Prep (Oyari)

Thank God it’s Friday!! I’m actually so excited it’s almost weekend. This happens to me when I have too much to do in so little time. Sometimes I literally forget it’s Friday. Then I remember, oops!! I have to put out my diary. I’m learning to manage my time better these days.

So I have been off trying to plan my first ever music video shoot and I must confess it’s not the easiest thing. I almost didn’t have time for anything else. But I’m overjoyed the video shoot is done and it looks amazing already. Although sharing my preps is like giving spoilers about the video, but I will take my chances. LOL.

Oyari music video shoot required a lot more than the ordinary. I needed really awesome professional dancers, a quality video director, a good working team of stylist, make-up artist, and hair stylist because I try to tell myself more often than not that mediocrity isn’t an option.

Few weeks before the shoot, intense dance rehearsals had started which I was totally loving. My stylist and designers were at work. Few days to the shoot I had finalized with my video director, Dir Q, on the concept.

On the D day, I was up early and I had a couple cups of coffees because I knew I hadn’t gotten so much sleep in about a week. My team got to the venue early enough. Shoot was a bit delayed, but eventually the shoot picked up.

The shoot went on till 3:00am the next day and I must confess I wasn’t tired because my adrenaline rush was at 100%. I was so happy to have completed my first ever music video and I can’t wait to share it with you all. And I pray all the hard work pays.

“Oyari” video will be out in April. Wait for it!! You will absolutely love it.

It’s Friday and all I want to do is have my favorite meal while watching a really good movie. Think of that one thing you want to do this weekend and go for it!!

Remember to drive safe. And please, don’t drink and drive.


TGIF (Thank God I’m Fancy).
