As part of her Dae + Nate Project, recording arts and philanthropist Adaeze released two music videos earlier this week; “Lamb” and “Hero.” The first sees the artist herself performing in the empty parking lot in front of the new Popular Discounts outlet in Kendall Hill as well as from atop the hood of a car. In the second – appropriately released on Heroes Day – she performs on a dirt path lined with palm trees, accompanied by a Mother Sally and a tuk band. The songs were written and produced by Adaeze and the videos were filmed, directed and edited by both Adaeze and Nathan Mack (she cuts together the video and he does the colouring).
In a statement to Zeitgeist Entertainment Magazine, Adaeze said of the project:
“For me the project is just about freedom of expression, exploring concepts, experimenting and creating for the sake of creating. [A lot] of the time artists get trapped in the machine and get trapped in following a plan – but I think art is about flow. I don’t ever wanna lose the art of it, so this is my way of whipping out the paint brush and seeing what happens. It requires discipline – it’s [a lot] of work to produce and write a song, film and edit a video in a matter of daes [sic]. But that’s the [challenge] that excites us and makes it fun for us. We started on a whim and we’ll keep producing dope videos until we stop. Then we’ll do something else! “
