It is unclear what level he is targeting but still photos from the set of the video shoot of his new song titled ‘Anaconda’, are sizzling. Ghanaian music enthusiasts only have to keep their fingers crossed and watch out for something hot and sexy. The video has some wild bikini scenes that can certainly raise something else other than eyebrows. Most of the scenes captured Tinny and bikini models doing their thing for the cameras. Already, there is a rising controversy over what he really meant by ‘Anaconda’. He is yet to make an official statement on it. The new video, which will be on the screens very soon, is directed by one Sony, with Tinny playing an integral role in the making of the video. It featured other artistes as Jupiter and Lansaka.
