Richie Stephens shoots new music video
Award-winning reggae singer Richie Stephens has just wrapped up production of a new music video for his single 'Knock Knock Knock' inSao Luis, the capital and largest city of the Brazilian state of Maranhao.
The success of the song in Brazil inspired the singer to shoot the video with a local production crew. The video is being edited.
Prior to embarking on a mini tour of Brazil, Stephens got word that Knock Knock Knock was a massive hit there. The proof was revealed when he arrived in Sao Luis for the first time on August 6.
"I was pleasantly surprised by the popularity of the song and how it had taken off on its own strength," the singer gushed. "I could not believe fans recognised me everywhere I went. They obviously had heard the song but only seen my picture on Facebook and YouTube. I went to a couple of parties and when they played the song, oh my...everybody started dancing and singing word for word. The response was amazing."
On his arrival in Brazil, he was whisked off to Radio Mirante, FM 96.1 in Sao Luis to do an interview with radio jock Waldiney, who was the first to play the song on the radio.
"I have to thank DJ Waldiney from Reggae Point radio for making the song a massive hit in Brazil. He is one of the top radio jocks and the first to play it on radio here. I have to big him up in a special way," the singer noted.
While in Brazil, Stephens headlined four shows - two in Sao Luis and two in Belem, the capital and largest city of the state of Para.
