UK singer/songwriter Vicky Sola brings her Nigerian heritage to the forefront on her new release titled “Cooked Food”. A record that blends infectious R&B vibes with afro-pop sensibilities.
For the ‘Cooked Food’ video, Vicky Sola took things back to her hometown in Brixton, with the help of burgeoning video director Marika Godwin (Nolay, Trillary Banks, Runtown). Filmed around the vibrant Brixton market, with choreography directed by Patience J (WSTRN, Davido, Tiwa Savage, Emeli Sande), the outcome is a fierce and colorful visual offering that not only brings the record further to life, but also showcases Vicky Sola’s infectious personality and performance prowess.
Speaking about how the record came about, Vicky Sola says, “I wrote ‘Cooked Food’ when I recently took myself out on a little date, giving myself some self-love and care. As I was eating and listening to the Delirious beat, I thought of how it would feel to be loved how I love my food, and that’s literally how the song was birthed. I have so much love for my African culture, so it’s only right I added some of my favourite African foods into the lyrics – it made for a fun and quirky track”.
“Cooked Food” is taken from her long-awaited and highly anticipated debut EP, which is set for release later this year.
