Shot by Deddac/ivisualz in a location presumed to be Entebbe, the Frontline music video is much about movement to bring out the aspect of a Peter Miles who’s certain of the journey he’s taking and where it’s destined to end.
Peter Miles and his squad that has Menshan and lots of other people exhibits a lot of energy as they walk through a ghetto of sorts before ending up in a trading centre where most of the action takes place. Kids show amazing dancing abilities as they compete against each other in turns. Of course, we also have the ‘bootyful’ professional dancers with their choreographed dances. The dances in the video match the upbeat mood of the song, so it’s clear there is that sync between the visual and the audio.
Even though the video tries to be Ugandan at best, one gets this feeling that many of the concepts of Frontline are more Jamaican than Ugandan. The camera angles are so monotonous, and the cloudy colouring and lighting leaves a lot to be desired.
Talking of costumes, it’s very much about your ordinary day to day clothing. There is nothing so captivating or memorable about Frontline, another of those videos that won’t get you talking, because there’s not a single new concept delivered.
Even though, in the past we knew of a Peter Miles, who could pull off a video shoot at a flying school or something out of the ordinary, that doesn’t happen in Frontline.
Overall, you get a feeling that it was much about having a video to accompany the song and it didn’t matter which kind of video. A very basic video for a superb audio.
