I’m a fan of any music video that shows Africa in a positive light but still remains authentic. In this music video, Burna and Major Lazer manage to showcase Lagos Nigeria in a very positive light and still keep it authentic compared to other bougee videos that show the ‘Rich’ side of Nigeria making it look all elitist.
The video shot on the streets of Lagos, Nigeria by South African filmmaker, Adriaan Louw opens with cuts from a man at the beach, to Burna Boy on a roof, a nice dance group doing their magic and a local Hausa wrestling match.
Taking to his Twitter page, Burna Boy posted, ”I’ve been waiting all my life for this type of vibe, I wanna see a million lights, LIGHT UP MY LIFE.”
Major Lazer will be releasing more videos from the project in the coming weeks and have asked their fans to vote for the one they want to see next ahead of their tour across Africa in September and October.
