Darey releases new video + Pictures of the making of the video

Dare Art Alade, now known as Darey, has just released a beautiful video for his new single 'No stars'...check out the press release below.

Darey has been working the mic for a while now that one can’t stop wondering if he ever takes a vacation. This is so evident that every time you turn around, there is something new from the gifted musician.

And this is perhaps why he has won the hearts of fans and critics inside and outside the country, as he never falls below expectations.

His latest video ‘No stars’ from his current wave making album ‘un.DAREY.ted’ was premiered on Thursday May 28, 2009. The video which is a sequel to his hit single ‘Not the girl’ features South African model Carla as she and Darey takes us on a journey through the good, the bad and the inevitable ugly aftermath of a soiled relationship.

The new video was directed by Mark and Gwydion, the same hands responsible for his previous videos ‘Not the girl’ and ‘More’. The duo team up once again to show creativity at its peak as they bring undiluted originality to our table.

No stars tell the story of the trauma of breakup effortlessly. With rich skills and a delicately- shot storyline, Darey is portrayed as a lonely man whose girl has left him, every step he takes and every move he makes, reminds him of his estranged ‘lover’.

Would she return for good? All that is what is embedded in the new video ‘No Stars’.

Darey first got our full attention in 2005 as a contestant in Project fame Africa where he emerged second position. He further continued his music career as a signee under Storm records where he released his debut solo album ‘Me to u’.

In 2008, he co hosted the first edition of Project Fame West Africa. His debut album ‘Un.DAREY.ted was released on Tuesday March 31, 2009.

This is the fifth video from his critically- acclaimed second album ‘Un.DAREY.ted’, and for the first time in contemporary Nigerian music, he has shown to fans, skeptics and critics that good vocal talent can still flourish in Nigeria.

The video is available for viewing at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ItwEqMw4MAg.

The making of Darey's No Stars

I've seen the video...loooooooves it!!!
Y'all need to check it out...

On another note, yesterday I got a call from a rep of a really big brand in Nigeria. They wanted to use my blog to publicise some event they are planning and the guy asked me how much it will cost them to put all that info on my blog. I told them to just send the stuff to my email with no cost whatsoever to them.

There were people in my office when I received this call and they were so annoyed that I didn't charge, since these guys were prepared to pay me. I tried to explain my decision to them but they refused to understand...lol

You see, the day I start charging people to put their stuff on my blog, is the day I'll loose interest in this blog. I do this for fun 'cos I enjoy it so much. The pleasure I derive from doing this is enough for me, I don't need the money.
So if there's anyone out there who wants to put anything out via my blog, just send me an email. You don't even need to introduce yourself to me, just send the info...it's 100% free ;)
Cheers everyone!
