The Senegalese rapper has released a new video that sees him as the king of the scene in his native country.
Elhadji Diallo (aka Elzo Jamdong) sings and raps in Wolof for the most part and occasionally in English and French. The co-founder of the Senegalese collective JamDong Community has released a new video that sees him as the king of the scene in his native country.
Through a minimalist visual, the unpolished setting plays host to the rapper’s steely bars, which are aimed at his detractors. Dressed in work overalls, he plunges us into an atmosphere of reckoning, which contrasts with a relatively relaxing beat. It oscillates between solitude and violence and forms a stage for Elzo Jamdong to hail his success, despite all the obstacles.
