Minz taps into a new energy on '234' with brand new music video

"The song is a trip, from the first sample."

Artist, producer, songwriter Minz drops music video for single release ‘234’, an Afro-fusion track that bounces between genres confronting an unfaithful, former love. The music video, directed by Mahine Sef brings a new dimension to the fun-loving track, further telling the story of love’s temptation, even when it goes wrong via glamorous styling and locations.

First growing up in the well-known Surulere area of Lagos – also the hometown of Grammy Award winning Afropop artist Wizkid – Minz spent his formative years moving around different parts of Nigeria, which is evident in his hybrid sounds which mesh together to create addictive, deconstructed Afrofusion bangers.

Having made music since he was a child, trying his hand at rapping, he went to university to study International Law & Diplomacy, but came out wanting to pursue his dream of being a musician. On the track, Minz says; “When making 234, I wanted to tap into a new energy, bring my listeners into a new Minz realm. The song is a trip, from the first sample. I want you to elevate when you listen.”
