Video of the Week: “Don’t Be Scared” by Asuquomo

By Apartment613 on October 7, 2020

Months before his breakthrough DIOBU album came out, Asuquomo dropped his OT RIDDIM mixtape in winter 2020. Calling back to that lowkey release, the Nigerian-born, Ottawa-based artist has just shared a new video for his OT RIDDIM track, “Don’t Be Scared.”

Directed by Asuquomo and close collaborator JustJay, the dark, trippy, avant-garde visuals are shot with a drone camera in the frozen suburbs of Ottawa, and indoors at Cinqhole (R.I.P.) in Hintonburg.

Heads up, this video footage is edited with fast jump cuts and strobe-like effects. There’s an important warning message for viewers with photosensitive epilepsy.
