Video: Ko-Jo Cue and Shaker ‘Up and Awake’ Feat. Kwesi Arthur
Ko-Jo Cue and Shaker out with the official music video for the song 'Up and Awake' featuring Kwesi Arthur and directed by Esianyo Kumodzi.
The much-anticipated music video for the song ‘Up and Awake’ off the popular “Pen and Paper” album and performed by Ko-Jo Cue and Shaker featuring Kwesi Arthur finally out! The Esianyo Kumodzi directed music video takes us back into time and marks the Black History Month. A music video filled with deep and heavy emotions.
The theme for the song merged in seamlessly with the concept of the music video as narrated by the super director; Esianyo Kumodzi. The song basically talks about getting out of oppression and risking everything to enjoy freedom even though it looks like an impossibility. Translated as Ko-Jo Cue, Shaker and Kwesi Arthur planning as escape from their masters or oppressors. It wasn’t a smooth one but freedom came at last!
This is way beyond just a music video and could be classified as a movie! The thrills, heart-beats, Goosebumps, and the little tears appear naturally when you really look deeper into the video. Some of the scenes might be disturbing to some viewers; but as the saying goes, “The Truth Hurts”. All actors in this short movie deserves an applause for this wonderful piece!
The Album “Pen and Paper” has recorded awesome trends on iTunes since its release last year (2017). Few weeks ago, it rose up to number 3 again in the top 20 albums in Africa. Once again, I will say “Pen and Paper” is a timeless album and only true music lovers can realize that. Enjoy music video below…
