GBTV: Watch E.L’s ‘Collect’ Music Video Featuring Kwesi Arthur.

Published

on

E.L did something different with the visuals for ‘Collect’, the single he released in December, 2018. The video marries a good storyline (even if you find it corny) and drama to provoke excitement as you watched. The video mirrors the overall lyrics of the song: a man ready to spend on a lady without care.

A lady steps into a bank- ”Collect Bank” to transact business, only to be met with glances from male customers. Finally, she’s approached by a guy who’s ready to encourage her ‘collecting’ game. The banking hall is soon turned into a playground.

The resplendence in their fashion is great, likewise the injection of Ga and adowa dancers which brought to the fore the exciting dance culture we have.
