G-West on Making of ‘People Pleaser’ and his collaboration with SYX

1. What inspired the theme of this music video?

The main goal my team and I had was to shoot a video that was very different from what we are used to on our screens. The director and her team did a great job bringing that idea to life.

2. How does the visual representation complement the lyrics of the song?

I will say it does compliment it pretty well. For example, I talk about how it’s pandemonium when the girl in question shows her face in public spaces. The video does a great job telling that story in a particular scene where the girl is surrounded by people and also staring at her while also trying to grab her.

3. Kindly share a memorable moment from shooting the video.

That was when I was on the horse—actually,  my first time on a horse.
There were some fireworks in the sky, and it startled the horse so much that he almost threw me off his back.

4. How do you think this video represents your growth as an artist?

Working with the crew on this video helped me know a bit more about cinematography and also inspired me to take the love I have for visual arts a bit more seriously since I do have the desire to direct my video one day.

5. What role do you feel music videos play in your artistic expression?

Music videos, I believe, play a pivotal role in bringing my sonic art to life visually.
That helps me tell my story more in-depth.

The ‘People Pleaser’ video is a visual feast that complements G-West’s sonic landscape, painting a picture of the complexities of social dynamics. Directed by the visionary SYX, the video captures the essence of the song with its vibrant storytelling and compelling imagery. As G-West continues to chart his course through the music scene, his videos are not just add-ons to his tracks but pivotal storytelling tools that deepen our connection to his artistry. ‘People Pleaser’ stands as a bold statement of G-West’s identity as an artist and a proud promoter of Ghanaian culture, setting the stage for what’s next in his thrilling artistic journey.
