On one of the solid tracks off the impressive Life Is Eazi Vol 2: Lagos To London mixtape, Simi and Mr Eazi teamed up to bring us one of the best features of 2018, “Surrender”.
Not only did Simi and Mr Eazi shine on the track, the accompanying animated video was also impressive and quickly went viral. On the Juls-produced track, Mr Eazi surrenders to his lover’s charm and her ileke idi (waist beads). Simi comes through at the near end and steals the entire show with her voice.
Although the funny animated video shows Mr Eazi mesmerized by a woman wearing giant waist beads, the official video takes a different direction. The vibrant video starts on a farm where the two lovers meet and fall in love much to Simi’s father’s displeasure. The two eventually sneak out to have a time of their lives at a colourful party at the end of the video.
