Davido Gives Us Samurai Vibes In Visuals Of Hit Song “The Best”

DMW boss Davido recently released visuals for his hit song “The Best” featuring Mayorkun. “The Best” is a song from his 17 track album “A Better Time” which he released in November 2020.

The song made its way to various chart platforms and stayed on the number one spot for weeks. The video has a Japanese Samurai theme with Wande Coal making a cameo appearance.

Directed by Dammy Twitch, the visual of the song sees Mayorkun approaching a damsel sitting pretty. He initiates a conversation with her, even though she is beaming with smiles and interested in talking with Mayorkun, her Shaolin guards accost him and beat him up.

Typical of a Japanese action movie, in his quest to revenge for the beating he received, he goes to Davido’s Shaolin temple, where Wande Coal is one of the teachers.

He makes gestures, apparently explaining his plight to his master  Davido who immediately begins tutoring Mayorkun on how to fight and become a fierce warrior.

This part of the video where he teaches Mayorkun how to fight syncs with Mayorkun’s part of the chorus in the song which goes, “I learnt from the best o, the best; David o, forget o. Mo bad. Forget now.”

The video pays attention to details as the costumes are a replica of the Japanese attire. The huts and Shaolin fighters had a close semblance with the Japanese culture.


Also, the concept of the video aligns with the theme of the song which explains that Davido is the best and he learned the craft by himself, while Mayorkun learned from the best, Davido. The video is already doing well on YouTube with over 700,000 views within 21 hours of release.
