The highly anticipated music video for “Come Closer”, Wizkid’s track with hip-hop sensation Drake, was finally dropped early this morning and it was everything we expected…but less. Directed by Nigerian born American video director Oladapo ‘Daps’ Fagbenle, the video was quite a departure from Wizkid’s Daddy Yo video with brighter and cleaner graphics. And we even loved the surprise appearance of a zebra. But the reason for our thirst for the video was far from quenched. There was no Drake appearance.Even though Wizkid has teased us with snapshots of the video for the past week, our suspicion was ticked when there was no photo of Drake was posted. It is quite understandable though as Drake was busy on his critically acclaimed Boy Meets World Tour in Europe while the video was being shot. Such a shame as the video would have scored a perfect 100 if “Champagne Papi” had made out the time. Watch the video below.
