    SHOT: Akon - Gil Green, director
    Director Gil Green has returned from a two week trip to Ghana as part of an effort to increase the quality of videos shot in the region, sponsored by MTV's African property MTV base, the Ghanian Ministry of Tourism and the NYU program in Ghana.

    The director ran numerous workshops for film students at the NYU Ghana campus and then allowed the group to co-produce and co-direct videos — under the name The Red, Gold and Gil Green — for both international star Akon and local artist Tic Tac featuring Batman. The videos were shot in Ghana's capital city Accra and the coastal region of Elmina. MTV base filmed all the activities for a forthcoming "Making Of" special. -- see photo of Gil Green working the camera as Akon performs

    artist: Akon
    song: "Mama Africa"
    label: SRC/Universal
    director(s): Gil Green
    production co: Partizan

    He already has 2 singles out: is this the next, you think?

    Green sure is getting a lot of directing work right now...

    Actually the remix isn't as bad as I thought. I prefer it over the original now .

    Anyways whats the deal with this song? Is it still his fourth single or is it scrapped? Its been like a month since it was supposed to be released to the radio and I don't know whats happening with it. Anyone have an idea?

    Just got the "Konvicted" CD yesterday. This is such a crap single choice! The 4th single should be "Blown Away"

    Well it has rarely any airplay and no music video. so might be because of that.

    I guess there must not be a video for this, otherwise it'd be on music channels by now!

    The single was released here on Monday (30th July) and it looks like it's going to go the same way as "Pot Of Gold".

    I think he gave up on this single. The next international single will be "Sorry..." from the re-release of his "Konvicted" album.

    It's doing MUCH worse than "Pot Of Gold" - only set for the top 160!!!

    WHERE IS THE VIDEO?! It was supposedly shot last year!

    lol well atleast the video for "Pot of Gold" was released.

    Like Estimator said, I think this single either flopped/will flop/has been scrapped and the next international single will be "Sorry".

    I have no clue about whats up with the video, but I do know they're shooting the "Sorry" because I've seen pics.

    I think the "Pot of Gold" video was released either a day or two before the single came out or the week the single came out. I don't understand why they didn't go with "Ghetto" instead and delayed "Pot of Gold".
