Global connections in Music Video objectification of Women: Dare Art Alade's "Fuji Music"

YES, I'm studying....

Note the visual connections between Dare Art Alade's music video "Fuji Music" and Sean Paul's "Ever Blazing," which should appear below this post.

Both songs feature obsessively catchy rhythms and "obscenely" shaking booty...

There is another paper waiting to be written here...

readership... cool, where are you reading from? Lagos?

No.. from London. I'm assuming you're doing a doct. around Hausa pop culture? After coming across the likes of Ibrahim Malumfashi, Margaret Kassam,though both great, it is nice to come across more contemporary scholars as your self, albeit vicariously.

readership,

Ok, nice. I appreciate your feedback! And, or course, I'm still learning much background/context etc, so if you ever have any suggestions, corrections,connections with other work you think I should look at, or other kind of feedback, I certainly welcome it! That's the wonderful thing about blogs. It opens up our sphere of acquaintance to other people around the world who are interested in the same things we are!!

thanks for reading!
