“Non Genuine,” the latest single from reggae veteran Thriller U, has been getting consistent rotation both here in Jamaica and abroad since its release in late February. Based on the positive feedback, Hopeton Brown, the producer, thought it prudent to create some visuals for the record.
On Saturday, April 1st the official video was shot in and around the Three Oakes area in Kingston, Jamaica. Keeping with the theme of the song, the video tells the story of a woman who gets involved with a man simply to advance her status in life, not for love.
The video features popular local actor Stanhype who has starred in videos for Duane Stephenson, Konshens and several other established acts; Shernette Williams, Janet James, Lady Joy and others. The CEO and owner of Nyah Bless Music, Hopeton Brown also makes a cameo appearance. The video was conceptualized and directed by Maria Jackson Entertainment.
