Burna Boy, Nigerian Afrofusion singer, has dropped the visuals to ‘Another Story’, a critically acclaimed track off his ‘African Giant‘ album.
The video, which was released on Monday as a follow-up to the visuals for ‘Pull UP‘, marks Nigeria’s Independence Day, which took place on October 1, 1960.
It commences by taking a shallow dive into the history of pre-colonial Nigeria and portraying people of colour being blinded by social vices including political corruption, fear, killings, malnutrition, and conflict.
It also sees Burna Boy air his grievances with regards to the country’s political scene and the endless litany of unactualized manifesto promises while accusing leaders in the country of deploying deceptive measures to drive their ambitions.
The talented songwriter went on to call for unity among the African people and hopes for a collective black consciousness where accountability is paramount.
As Manifest, who features in the video, joins in, the Ghanaian rapper compliments Burna’s narrative with deftly crafted satirical lines that take a critical shot at the continuously widening gap between the rich and poor in the African society.
