I’m excited to find great music artists who are really making great music, and this week we introduce to you British Nigerian singer, songwriter and composer, and MOBO Award nominee Olaedo Ibe , Olaedo Ibe with her very inspiring song “Lead Me”. She released her single barely a month away and even though we just found her music out just in time to give you her just released video for the same single ‘Lead Me’ is taken from her forthcoming sophomore EP Grow To Glow, and is currently being supported by leading African and Gospel tastemakers.
Shot on location in the UK, and directed by renowned Italian filmmaker and director Paolo Benetazzo, the ‘Lead Me’ visuals is a creative, emotive and thematic offering, which stays true to the inspiration behind the original track, and it sees Olaedo Ibe lost in a forest, with a light then leading her to a place of safety.
Speaking about the inspiration behind the video, Olaedo says, “I had so much fun with the music video, it was shot in a forest to make an emphasis on the lyrical content of the single. It also mirrors Psalm 43:3 – Oh, send out Your light and Your truth! Let them lead me; Let them bring me to Your holy hill and to Your tabernacle”.
Olaedo continues that, “the music video is special to me as it’s a symbolic story of how God continues to leads me in life – and if he can lead me, I’m know he can lead you too”. As we anticipate the release of her Grow To Glow EP, enjoy the visuals for Olaedo Ibe’s ‘Lead Me’ below, and purchase the single on iTunes.
