We have the pleasure of exclusively presenting the latest video from Mr. Hagan's talented cousin and 2010 UK MOBO Nominated MC/producer/songwriter M3NSA, also one half of the infamous FOKN Bois.
"Fanti Love Song" - the latest single taken from his brilliant album 'No.1 Mango Street' - finds M3NSA dreamingly cruising the streets of the New York on a skateboard on a vital mission. Brilliant urban cinematography is interspersed with scenes of a warehouse jam session with interchanging band members.
Shot in the Bronx, Brooklyn and Manhattan (New York); the video is directed by budding Ghanaian director Sam Kessie (Sankofa Pictures), who also directed M3NSA's first single 'No One Knows'. Cinematography by John David Devirgiliis.
Allstar cameos come in the shape of actor and poet MumZ, star of HBO's 'OZ', as well as Ghana's very own Kwabena Jones (MC / Producer); who can both be seen lending a hand as part of the band. A mysterious guitar strumming beauty is played by the brilliant actress Sena Tsikata; of Things We Do For Love and more recently 6 Hours To Christmas fame!
So without further ado, here's the video.
Here's some additional behind the scenes footage...
