Produced by filmmaker and producer, Pascal Aka, the video of Crazy showcases Pascal’s expertise in video production as he manages to translate the concept of the song into motion pictures. The video features the trio in a Chinese setting portraying the power of God in a martial art display.

Crazy is one of the songs on Preachers’ current album, The Fearless Project. It is a rap/hiphop song where the trio take turns to rap in praise of their Maker by tongue twisting, word playing, and delivering unusual mind-blowing punch lines.

Their style is not the traditional gospel music form but the young artistes have adopted a different approach to evangelise and attract a large following from the youth.
