Singing couple, Tunde and Wunmi Obe who won the Best Contemporary Afro Video for their song ‘Bianu’ at the just concluded Nigeria Music Video Awards (NMVA) have just concluded the video shoot for ‘Rise-Up’, a reggae-flavoured song off their ‘T.W.O. Plus’ album.

Directed by the renowned cinematographer, Clarence Peters, ‘Rise-Up’ is an unusual style of music from the couple which they claim is for the enjoyment of all reggae fans in the world.

According to the duo, “The song, ‘Rise-Up’ is for all reggae lovers out there. Though we are not reggae artistes, we decided to do something different for our fans and to celebrate all the great reggae musicians we have lost and those alive. You all are going to love the video and get lost in the feel of the music. The video will be dropping very soon.”

‘T.W.O. Plus’ is a 15-track album with singles such as ‘Green White Green’ ft. 2face Idibia, ‘Omonsa’, ‘Bianu’ ft. Floss, Rise Up, Ire ft. Brace, Ayanmo ft. 9ice and ‘Wedding Day’, whose video has won the NMVA 2014 award for Best Use of Costume. The album features production from elite Nigerian music producers such as Del B, Samklef, Papi J and B. Jay Productions.

The couple, who are Nigeria’s most notable husband and wife act, first achieved recognition and public acclaim in the 90s and over the past two decades. Their creative collaborations have spawned successful albums such as ‘T.W.O 4 Real,’ ‘T.W.O. Legit’, as well as popular anthems such as 2005 releases like ‘Mogbomoya’ and ‘Adupe’.
