Davido reshoots 'Skelewu' video

18 October 2013, 14:35

Abuja - 24 hours after his "Skelewu" music video leaked online, pop singer Davido travelled to London to reshoot it with video director Moe Musa.

Davido's much anticipated video for his hit song "Skelewu" was released on October 15, 2013, but after fans and critics dished out mostly negative reviews, the 21-year-old singer claimed the video was never approved by his label and wasn't meant to be released.

Nigeria Entertainment Today investigations reveal that the video clip was not uploaded on Davido's official YouTube page, suggesting he did not upload it.

Davido also explains on Twitter that when he watched the "leaked" version two weeks ago, he decided to reshoot it.

Davido tweeted out his frustration as soon as the video hit the web: "From the moment I first watched the leaked version 2 weeks ago I decided to reshoot it. I knew right away that "Skelewu" deserved a better vid."

Davido believes he knows who leaked the video, in a cryptic tweet he wrote: "Can't believe this dude did this... U know who u are! ... Then you wait till I'm on the plane lol smart move .. Karma."

Fingers are reportedly pointed at the director of the first video, popular music video director D.O.P Sesan Ogunro (who works with the likes of D'banj, Tiwa Savage, Iyanya and many others).

But the director insists that despite the accusations, he's as cool as ice. He wrote on Twitter: "I am not fighting with anyone. these are rumours. Fade [Ogunro] and myself are cool with everyone."
