If you’re not all too familiar with Burna Boy then you get one get out of jail card, you would probably recognise his voice when he featured on Drake’s ‘More Life’ album alongside Brit Award winner Jorja Smith and he’s seriously making moves in the reggae and dancehall world. This is a wave if you love carnival life but you’re not all about the wind life. Cleverly combining the elements of Asian persuasian with an old skool So Solid style beat, it’s hard to put your finger on this interesting mash up of genres but that’s genuinely when we believe you’ve found something special, when you can’t actually categorise it.
With scenes of domesticated life, as we visit families, witness barber life and Nigerian seamstress work; the video embodies Burna Boy’s Nigerian and family morals. Mix that with fashion that is fully fledged across the 70’s to the 90’s and it makes for an interesting video.
