Young love and the devotion you feel in the heady days at the start of a relationship are the subject of "Nobody," the new song from Nigeria's DJ Neptune. He recruited afrobeats vocalists Joeboy and Mr Eazi for the laidback tune, which come with a comedic video that pays homage to Michael Jackson's choreography.

The video, which you can see above, catches Joeboy trying to impress a girl more interested in watching dance videos on her phone than spending time with him. In his hour of need he turns to Neptune who hands out the advice needed to turn his situation around.

Speaking to The FADER via email, DJ Neptune said: "When Joeboy voiced the hook on 'Nobody''s beat, I already knew it was hit even before he delivered his verse. Immediately I buzzed Mr Eazi up and told him I wanted him on it. Eazi heard the song and didn't hesitate to jump on it and in no time his vocals were in. This is how we created 'Nobody,' another smash hit by DJ Neptune a.k.a #Greatness."
