Vayne sets the benchmark for her debut music video

 

Hamilton/Auckland rapper Vayne has released her debut music video and it’s already a favourite.

Connor Pritchard directed the video so you already know it’s going to be a visual masterpiece.

With ‘Saya on the beat’ and Vayne’s killer lyrics, the video has helped get the track in the spotlight and the recognition it deserves as it was released on Soundcloud almost one year ago.

All in all, the ‘waiwait’ was worth it Vayne. Well played.

D.Matthews, calls himself the sharpest & idiosyncratic fashionista. After realizing his ardour for music in 2017, he launched his music career at the age of 20. Born to Nigerian parents in Ibadan, Oyo State, his creativity stands firm in Afrobeat, R&B, Pop/Soul & Trap.

His new single ‘Blow Out’ is an ode to self worth.

“We live in a life where everyone wants to succeed. Of course, but it’ll take a lot of hard work & commitment to get to that platform.

Whilst you’re in your lane grinding trying to make a difference in the world with your influence, there will be people wishing you bad out of jealousy… but it shouldn’t be something for you to look at because you are going somewhere rare & phenomenal.

Always look ahead of yourself in all spheres of life and neglect the negativity around you.”
