He said that video entire will be shot in Nevis and everything is already in place.
“The entire video will be filmed in Nevis because the song speaks of Nevis. I don’t think there will be one location. We will try to get in as many locations in Nevis as possible. The video will be shot by James Galloway,” Brandy said.
