Wizkid Chose Ghana
Shooting his video in Ghana was not a random act of choice, Wizkid has actually chosen Ghana as his new home and is often seen at various celebrity gatherings and clubs. So it is no mystery he was blessed with the opportunity to shoot with one of Ghana’s most renowned photographers Apagnawen Annankra, popularly known as Apag Studios.
Apagnawen Annankra is the CEO of Apag Studios which offers premium photography and videography services, most commonly in commercials, documentaries and weddings. Apag’s interest in photography began after the passing away of his father. He was then asked to prepare a slideshow for his wake and that is when he discovered his talent.
The shoot sees Wizkid in stunning menswear outfits are some of Ghana’s most popular tourist sites like the James Town lighthouse and the National Theatre. The image was shot for Lion King Magazine.
