Sensational singer, Nikki Laoye has finally dropped the video for her latest hit single, “ONLY YOU”.
Nominated for “Song Of the Year” – African Gospel Music Awards in the UK and trending on twitter across Nigeria within minutes of its release, Nikki made a powerful statement when she released the soulful ballad in April, earlier this year.
In the video for the Rotimi Keys produced song, Nikki expresses her deep love and trust for God, the One who held her through the most trying time of her life – the recent loss of her Dad.
In her own words, Nikki says “This is my love note to the Lover of my soul- the one who kisses away my tears, the one who holds me tight late in the midnite hour; the one who has put my broken heart together again.”
Shot on location in London by UK based video director/producer, Shabach, the video illustrates Nikki making a home video recording – a picturesque video message expressing the intimate bond between father and child, with Nikki showing her uninhibited love and trust in an emotional and sometimes playful way.
Dedicated to the memory of her late father, Prince Olushola Laoye, who passed away in her arms in 2011, Nikki further explains, “Shooting this video was very emotional for me”, she says. “I had to get past being upset,and actually sing the song, not cry through it.
My Dad was a true representation of who God is to me so I literally looked into the camera and saw Him smiling back at me, urging me on. I know this song has been a great inspiration and solace to many since its release and I simply want anyone hurting out there to find comfort and rest in the soothing love of the one true Abba Father”.
Urban Contemporary singer, Nikki Laoye is signed to Nigerian entertainment company, Wahala Media Entertainment.
