It’s no secret by now that former Ole Miss linebacker Denzel Nkemdiche has found his true passion in life: music. Nkemdiche, who goes by the stage name: Zenny Phantom, released his debut album, “Grey Pixels, in late October. Phantom recently released his first music video from the album in late November.

Phantom has talked about how important visuals are for him. He recently told Auxford Wave:
“I want to be a director one day, and I’m definitely working towards that, I love visuals. I think visuals are everything, especially now that we have the technology to capture almost as much as the human eye can capture, with cameras. A picture can tell a thousand words, but a video can tell a million. I feel like songs and visuals as music go hand-in-hand. I feel like most artists that I listen to, like Pink Floyd, Janis Joplin, the Beatles, they were trying to tell a story. They were trying to tell us about their life. (…) Now, if someone in another country that can’t understand the language that anyone is speaking, but they see the visual and it’s a story being told, no matter if they didn’t understand the lyrics, they can understand what the artist was trying to say.”
