Munachi Osegbu Is The Director Behind Megan Thee Stallion’s “Hot Girl Summer”

September 4, 2019

Even before she coined the phrase that defined summer 2019 from Twitter Nigeria to pool parties in Atlanta, Megan Thee Stallion was bound to enjoy a hot summer. The deliciously care-free music video for her massive hit, “Hot Girl Summer” is now out, directed by exciting Nigerian-born filmmaker, Munachi Osegbu.

The video opens with a confused social media star wondering about her choice of clothing to the party of the summer. Her problem is solved when she arrives at the party, where her host, Thee Stallion is getting all turnt up with a star-studded entourage that parties through the day and night.

23-year-old photographer and director, Munachi Osegbu grew in the US, obsessed with magazines, music videos and as she told Hunger, “2000’s Dolce & Gabbana ads by Steven Meisel,” Osegbu’s work blends urban and afro-futurist art. It would explain why he’s been an ideal fit to translate Meghan’s ‘feminist’ anthems into high-energy music videos.

Osegbu and Thee Stallion are regular collaborators; the two also worked together on “Realer” and “Big Ole Freak”. The 23-year-old filmmaker boasts a diverse catalogue with clients like NICOPANDA, Converse, Refinery 29, Epic Records and more.

Every so often, Nigeria’s social media space takes a break from being a festering cesspit, churning out a never-ending deluge of tired comedians in poorly executed drag.
