Burna Boy unveils emotional music video ‘Dangote’

The singer steps aside to put the shine on Nigerians who are facing economic struggle.

Last week, Burna Boy released his first solo single of 2019. “Dangote” is a Kel P-produced song that makes reference to business man Aliko Dangote, the richest man of Africa. Burna sings in Yoruba, English and Pidgin.

“Dangote” has now its visuals, where we only see the singer at the end, through an old cathode-ray tube television. The music video directed by Clarence Peters portrays the stories of many Nigerians who are facing economic struggles and the choices that come up from living in those situations.

It start with a quote: “The richest man in Africa still goes to work every morning. Employment and job creation should be priority for any government. The National Bureau of Statistics puts the estimated number of unemployed Nigerians at 23.1%”
