The music video : TONKOYA – EDDY KENZO

KenzoIf you have it, flaunt it, and the best way to flaunt it, is visually. That’s what Eddy Kenzo aims at in this video, at least fashion wise. From the golden chains, watch and bling-bling, he projects the image of someone who has reached that peak of musical stardom. One thing to like about this video, is Eddy Kenzo’s sense of fashion and that look of swag.

Second thing worth crediting is the dancers. What is an Eddy Kenzo video without some dances? And in Tonkoya we have those dances being pulled off by a couple of dancers. The most outstanding ones are those performed by this pencil thin guy in a way that mimics a monkey and kangaroo. There is one where he dances as a guy starting a motor-bike. It rhymes so well with the chorus lines of Tonkoya.

And the last cheer for this video is the great colouring and lighting. The video having been shot at night was devoid of that haze commonly witnessed in most Ugandan videos shot at night, the smoke effect was well regulated and the colours artfully blended to evoke the right emotions.
So, the video gets three things right. But it fails to get the crucial aspect of a great video right. You shoot a praiseworthy video and you forget a storyline. A storyline is the soul of the video. Without a it, the video fails to live out its purpose. Mute this video and you will agree it lacks a storyline. Apart from Eddy kenzo who spends all his time seated, plus the dancers, nothing else speaks to the viewer. The guys at Superstar Films should have done better on this.
