Arabian Nights was written by Kojo Rhyme in May of the year 2014. The single of the artiste whose career began in 2008 received a lot of radio airplays to become a favorite among his fans who began calling for its video. “I have been busy working on my yet to be released album which is taking a lot of my time and energy so my team and I decided to work on a video later on” Kojo said.
The Afropop rapper, who sings in the Ashanti language and also English said the desire to produce a video for Arabian Nights “gained more momentum again early in 2015 when I started working on some projects with Bra Shizzle. I’ve known personally Shizzle since 2013 and we both talked about a concept he had which I really liked, the end results is the video you see today”.
Shot on locations at Ashaiman in Ghana, the barely three minutes video highlighted a cast of individuals who experienced their first time ever behind a video camera, yet they all had an easy connect, something which helped Bra Shizzle convey the kind of story Kojo Rhyme wanted to tell in his music through the new video.
Other video productions of Bra Shizzle besides Arabian Nights are the End of Time video of Lil Zig, Dzigbordi by Kemenya, Pray 4 me by MoQid and Quame Ananse’s Missing you video which features Gallaxy. The CEO of SH1 studios started off studying Graphic designing in 2008 branched out to specialize in music videos and tv commercials during his final year at the University of Cape Coast.
“I strongly feel all who follow my music are going to enjoy this video and as I near the completion of my second single, I plan to work on an exciting music video for that too. Watch out for more details on my Twitter because the best is yet to come” says Kojo who is set to release his first album soon.
