Calabash Music releases the visuals for ‘Faux Weh’, a song by their newly signed hip hop artist Stanis. The video is an introduction of the creative capacity that the rapper possesses. Stanis sings in English, French and Pidgin, revealing the affinity that people have for the 'easy way out' (Faux Weh) in our communities. In a light, lyrical - almost playful - tone, he exposes several vices that have unfortunately become the norm in our society today. And he does so on a bouncy afro trap beat produced by label mate; DJ K+
On the video, director Dr. Nkeng Stephens infuses a creative twist that further brings Stanis' storytelling to life. It portrays the artist playing various vicious roles whilst also seeking redemption from his bad ways. So what kicks off as a personification of the glorification of vice, ends up becoming a call to action for us to become more virtuous people. In a musical scene already pervaded by perversity, Stanis is subliminally carving a new niche through satire. Click below to watch, be thrilled and redeemed.
