Excerpts from 1st week edition:

Baddoo, the musically confidence of coughing out hits after hits like he just goes under his pillow to pick up ideas and lyrics releases this video.

Flavour remains unshaken on our list, and although improved in Views, shares and YouTube stats, it is currently finding it hard to knock Olamide and Tiwa Savage off the charts. Good news though, it has not fallen off the wagon as it holds on to its No 3 spot.

Excerpts from S1 E1:

If you think you have seen the best of Clarence Peters, you probably just kidding so I would leave it at that, lol. What do you do with a consitent and a mega-super-entertainer like Flavour’s new Jam as a A-rated Music Video director?

You make it epic!

Love the video, the colours of the set, the splash effects and general video transitions. Well done Clarence once again.

Poorest performed Video of the week

Ay.com ft 9ice, Oritse Femi | Capital G.O.D

While this video is undoubtedly a good video, one wonders why it is not being promoted heavily.

The video which features Oritse Femi and 9ice who rendered their usual charismatic tune to the track only has 24,492 views despite being released over a month ago.

Common A.Y.Com, we glad to see you back, this video deserves more.
