Malawian-born Ireland based rapper Pop Dogg has finally shot a music video collaborated with Afro Pop singer Dan Lu titled Work So Hard in which he denies that illuminati plays a role in his ‘success’.
“Celebration, jubilation/my success, full dedication/ Malawian Ninjaz rule the nation/ I ain’t illuminati but illu-mination,” the award-winning artist raps.
Pop Dogg told Nyasa Times that Work So Hard was recorded on videoon 14th of October in Dublin on the same day prior to their live performance.
“To shoot a music video and perform live on stage the same day is very exhausting. I don’t think a lot of people understand the amount of energy it takes. You need a lot of dedication, hard work and perseverance, that’s why the song Work So Hard is a true testimony of what we do,” said Pop Dogg.
Work So Hard music video was shot in different locations within Dublin and is directed by Joe Chad, highly acclaimed music video director who also directed Pop Dogg’s Malawi Moto and Am A Champ music videos.
“ We shot this video with drones and cinema cameras. It’s going to be my second 4K music video and I am very excited about this project, I can’t wait to show it to the world. Everything was so professional, from the artists, director, to the beautiful models and dancers. The energy on set was astonishing. There was so much talent on the same spot,” said Pop Dogg
The artist, who recently headlined Africa Day Ireland, continues to say that there is no quick ways to success.
He states that dedication, hard work and perseverance play a major key.
“Pano ndinapita ena akuti pano ndimaitha. Zanga zinayela, kundipeza ndimangoti thank you Jah! For blessing me yeah!” Dan Lu sings on the track, which is in both Chichewa and English.
Pop Dogg praises Dan Lu describing him as very talented and one of the hardest working artists in the Malawi music industry.
“The ‘Sweet Banana’ hit maker was just a perfect fit for the song and a lot of people with same beliefs like ours will relate to the song.
“The aim of the song is to motivate people to work hard, I believe God blessed each and every one with different skills and talents [and] it’s up to us to utilise such talents to revenues,” explains Pop Dogg.
