I made you a list of some of the coolest videos on the internet today. You’re welcome.
Monsters You Made – Burna Boy (NG)
This socio-politically conscious video illustrates how racism, colonialism and slavery has affected black people and fueled anarchy. The Monsters in this video are angry, oppressed and sad and are seen preparing for war — war against capitalism, brutality and impunity.
No surprise that this hits differently right now, as this is our current reality in so many countries across Africa. We have finally woken up and decided to demand justice.
Right Thang – Shirazee ft Busiswa (RB)
You’ve got to love this fun split-screen video of the already groovy song, directed by Modern Day Auteur.
Love how it shows the two artistes, duetting while going about their personal lives on both sides of the screen, with the occasional cheeky interactions. You can tell that the energy is just right.
Tamba – Mbosso (TZ)
Alternative dancehall music? here for it! This one really has a subtle comic side to it, love the part where ‘haters’ were hating on their subtle PDA.
You probably might not understand the language but I can bet you’ll watch the video to the end.
Dodo – Alikiba (TZ)
Bongo Superstar —King Kiba himself, is dressed regally in this ancient royal-themed video.
The video of this melodious song has an Egyptian Royal wedding vibe that you would absolutely love.
Zoom – Cheque (NG)
This guy was driving all over Lagos (literally) with an artificial goat right beside him, hahaha. TG Omori really brought his A-game as always, most especially with the VFX.
Oh, and there’s an artificial puppy in the backseat too.
Brighter Days – Sauti Sol (KE)
This video lives rent free in my head. The boy band is seen in this very simple yet uplifting video, with the Soweto Gospel Choir in their ever colorful dresses and wearing their ever beautiful smile, performing this beautiful song that spreads positivity, love and hope in a dim lit studio.
Njandini – Kwesta (SA)
Looking for pure South African music content??? This one’s for you.
The superb styling, the aesthetic feel of the whole video and that empty cinema are some of my favorite things from this video.
