When comparing to his earlier work, the ‘Nekwatako‘ video doesn’t stray far from the usual antics of John Blaq’s style and we will gladly say there’s nothing new or surprisingly unique about it.
Well, apart from the improved visuals and effort put in shooting it in a colourful location, just like any or most Ugandan music videos, the template is rather the same. Throw in a car, a location, just a few dancers and women and that’s all it is. ‘Another music video.’
Nekwatako still falls short of what’s expected of music videos in 2020
The video was shot by Black Magic Records, which is the same company that manages John Blaq and they used the Forest Hotel in Mabira forest as their location of choice, which was a good idea since its one of the few good qualities about about it.
The colourful video also doesn’t drift away from Blaq’s style. When you look at his previous work, there isn’t much of a difference in the formula which we believe is maintained to keep his fans happy.
What are your thoughts on the Nekwatako video? Do you think John Blaq can do better?
