With their latest music video release for ‘Cough (Odo)’ with Kizz Daniel nearing 30 million views on YouTube (the single itself has amassed over 150 million plays online), revered independent label EMPIRE are not resting on their laurels when it comes to their new compilation album Where We Come From (Vol. 1), as they open up their 2023 with a brand new music video for another fan-favourite track from the project – ‘FAYA’ by Nigerian pop rising star BAD BOY TIMZ.
Shot in the heart of Lagos Island in Nigeria, and directed by Ahmed Mosh (CKay, Blaqbonez, Ruger), the music video for ‘Faya’ brings the infectious jam further to life with its vibrant colours and visual storytelling about young love, romance, and companionship. It also captures Bad Boy Timz in his artistic element as he shows off his infectious personality and captivating performance prowess. Having turned 23, Bad Boy Timz has entered his ‘Jordan Year’ in flying form with the glorious ‘Faya’, produced by Semzi (Davido, Omah Lay), setting pace with over a million plays online.
Revered for massive hits like ‘Move’, and ‘Loading’, with more recent fan-favourites like ‘Big Money’, Bad Boy Timz burst onto the scene only three years ago, with the breakthrough jam ‘Check And Balance’, which he then followed up with the TIMZ EP, his self-titled debut EP that accumulated over 10 million streams in that year. The last two years have seen the fast-rising star grow from strength to strength, including winning the ‘Rookie of the Year’ award at the Headies Award, amassing over 80 million global streams, and charting on the Billboard US Afrobeats Song Chart, among other achievements.
