Following the release of the catching and highly infectious tune back in the month of January, the Young D produced "Sexy Nana" by well-endowed and buxom Janelia has gone on to accrue hits on online platforms, the clubs as well as on radio; we would recall that she put out a "Sexy Nana" dance competition and also dished out the meaning of the song at some point before releasing the "Behind The Scenes" video for the offering. In March, she let out 2 versions of the Afro-Pop single, asking fans and music lovers at large to vote their pick; alas, the Miguel Asua directed/Lex-Ten edited version seem to be the front-runner on this and in her words:
"The much anticipated music video for "Sexy Nana" is here! It was shot in Dupont Circle in Washington, DC U.S.A., directed by Miguel Asua of Motion Dynasty and edited by the super talented Lex-Ten
on the Nigerian soil in the heart of Lagos - we decided to go this
route because we wanted the music video to have the best of both
worlds." - Janelia

has the Contemporary sound of Afrobeats known worldwide as Afro-Pop; as
an artiste, she has crossover appeal. She has secured fans for herself
