The music was very catchy. I loved the song. I love the way you bring your energy out when you perform. I liked the concept of you and the girl oiled up together...but when I saw you oiled up by yourself it sort have thrown me off. I would have like to have seen more of your sense of style. Even though you do have a gorgeous body...I felt that that portion of the video should have been toned down in order to concentrate on the actual song. Other than that...I'm looking forward to seeing more of your work.

sounds cool, it should be remixed put more ass on that one. the oil was a bad idea but it was still crazy. for some reason i envision you playin on the uk factor and wear jackets from the 1600s for some reason i see that look workin for u and the band.

Thanks for viewing the vid and for your feedback..

Cheers James!! it is a demo mix that can still be remixed should anyone wish to sign..as for the oil..well it was the director's persistence as he believed it enhances and stands out against the white background..it was a technical thing that became part of the fun etc..thank you for the words of encouragement though concerning the track!!!

Just a response to ALL&FOREVA - ..we did try different notions of ice cream contrasting flavours (chocolate and vanilla) where the model would appear to be licking that each time the relevant flavour was mentioned but the director did not like the notion with the rest of the video. In all honesty when I wrote this song, as it is based on my true sentiments and experiences, the ethnicity of the model was completely irrelevant. The ice cream was the subject matter with reference to the lyrics "chocolate girl" and "vanilla girl". The song title "99" is actually a reference to an ice cream here in the UK where a chocolate bar is stuck into vanilla ice cream and is sold for "99" pence. The song is about any girl licking THAT particular ice cream. I know it is not so clear but I am aware that the "chocolate girl" and "vanilla girl" reference can be (and rightfully so) interpreted as a reference to ethnicity. Therefore having 2 ethnically contrasting models would have been ideal to get the message across visually in a video- I suspect this is what your point might be- please correct me if mistaken. Time and space however were severely against us. The model in the video is of some mixed heritage as it happens. She was great as well as understanding of the concept and the severe last minute situation. We also tried to play with the "vanilla/chocolate" effect by filming her in a black dress (as opposed to brown because black was better against the white background) and then in a white dress to be cut into the video each time the relevant "chocolate" and "vanilla" lyrics was mentioned..it is just really a high energy video that plays on fun, fantasy and true situations...

Overall I sincerely hope you did enjoy the video/song and I appreciate you watching..we are (myself, band and director) still young and learning so we have a way to go yet..that is why, I repeat again, I THANK YOU for sending me your feedback..seriously appreciated.

Please look out for next video for my song "Never Give Up" (track #3 on my profile page) later in the year.

Much respect,
Komla

Decent track. However, it could be mixed better. Don't care for the oiled up body in the video. (Doesn't fit the track). Pretty good production.
