The music video for Eddy Kenzo’s tender new song “Follow” is uplifting with its spiritual appeal to young lovers to put their trust in God and themselves in order to overcome any challenges they face when in a relationship.

Shot primarily in a restaurant, with jump cuts to Eddy Kenzo singing, the video features a young waiter and waitress. The waiter is new on the job and carries on making mistakes which upset customers and make him look like he is confused.

However, as he makes his mistakes, the more seasoned waitress always supports him and helps him get better on the job. Before long, the two realise they have a bond which brings them together in love.

The young couple does a good job portraying young love, which oozes with romance one minute and then bleeds with disagreements the next. From the close-ups of the two holding hands, to the Ugandan blue skies and sunshine, to sharing a leisurely drink, the two have undoubted chemistry.

Kenzo’s romantic video explores love in all of its complexity. As lovers face tests, but their essential passion for one another ultimately survives.

The videography of the video is also appealing with the well-timed drone shots and scenes which switch to the young couple falling in love while shots of Kenzo singing come in between to punctuate these scenes.

The dreamy, soft-glow effect of the visuals successfully manages to create the feel of a romantic daydream.

In this new song called Follow, I went deep into love looking at a young couple that should be making a lot of mistakes but rather focused so much on God, standing in for each other, being one another’s keeper in a quest to move steadily together and build a strong family,” Kenzo said.

Adding that,Speaking from the experiences around us, we mostly make mistakes choosing relationships as young people which result into regrets and bitter arguments. This time round i decided to pass a message to everyone especially the young people, that if we hand our relationships to God, love each other, agree to work together & respect each other, we can break the chain of failing young people’s relationships.”

It is surely a powerful video, sure to tug at viewers' heart strings.
