RETTA Releases ‘Kolo For You’ Video On Heels of NY Times Article on Indie Rock Embracing African Invasion

In October 2010,  Ladybrille introduced you to the artist RETTA while highlighting Africa’s rock scene. We followed up with an exclusive interview in November of the same year. This year, last week Friday, The New York Times did a feature on how American Indie Rock bands are “embrac(ing) an African invasion” in their music. On the heels of the NY Times feature and with Valentine’s day around the corner, RETTA releases her new video ‘Kolo (crazy) for You.’

The video directed by award winning music film director Clarence Peters sees P-Square’s Peter Okoye making a cameo appearance. The video concept, texture, quality of images and song, especially for a first, gets our BIG Ladybrille (brilliant) stamp of approval. Congratulations to both JTON Management and RETTA. Stay tuned for more RETTA on Ladybrille.
