Nigerian rapper and songwriter Olanrewaju Ogunmefun, better known by his stage name Vector has released visuals to his recently released song ‘Rape Veom’.
In the video that was officially released on July 17 is off Vector’s recently released Extended Play (EP) ‘African Mind’.
‘Rape Voem’ is a song that addresses the issue of rape and also analyses what the average African faces regardless of age, gender, and status.
Directed by Talk To Ace Films, the video is a simple one and is in black and white, perhaps done purposely to ensure the weighty message contained in the song is perfectly delivered.
In the song, Vector expresses his concern as to how society expects people who have been abused maltreated and violated to keep quiet.
''Like the victims of rape should only sit still,” read part of the lyrics.
“Should i fall by another man’s flaws cos he didn't do his best, wasn't making any calls against the foul play?” Vector notes in another line in which he talks about the African people and their deafening silence about the ills of the society.
The visuals were shot at Imitor Studios and the song is produced by Falowe Peters.
Vector who has released three studio albums, including 'State of Surprise' and 'The Second Coming' delivers this song in spoken word.
