Nigeria: Orezi Tours South Africa, Shoots 'Rihanna' Video

Hip hop sensation, Orezi is currently on tour of major South African cities. While embarking on the tour, the Isoko, Delta State born artiste is also shooting the video of his hit single

'Rihanna' which has been rocking the airwaves in Nigeria and across Africa for close to two months now.

South Africans have been having a feel of this young artiste who has left no one in doubt as to his mission in the music industry

"I am into music to make my mark and leave my foot prints. I am glad that South Africans and Nigerians resident here accepted my music and they have showed me so much love that I am overwhelmed. I never knew that 'Rihanna' is an anthem here like it is in Nigeria, for that I give glory to God and my management companies, Sprisal Records and Synergy Entertainment," Orezi said in an online chat from South Africa.

The best hands are currently working on the video of 'Rihanna'. Everybody working on Orezi project is presently in South Africa to ensure every thing works according to plan.

"This is planning and coordination at its best. The state-of-the-art equipment being used on the video, the precision, timing... is out of this world! Nigerians are going to see a video that will redefine music videos in Nigeria going forward," the hip hop star said.

On the budget for the video, Orezi decided to keep that off the card, but investigations revealed that the entire project is costing his management company a whopping N7.3 million.

Immediately after the South African tour, there are plans for Orezi to tour some countries in Europe.

It is not sheer coincidence that Orezi titled his hit single Rihanna as the foreign star would want to do a remix of the song with no other person than the diva, Rihanna.
