It's October 1, and Burna Boy is honoring 59 years of Nigerian independence. To celebrate, the Afro-fusion artist released his newest music video "Another Story" featuring Ghanaian rapper M.anifest. The video kicks off with the quote, "To understand Nigeria, you need to appreciate where it came from,"paired with a visual with children covered in mask splattered with words representing all of the obstacles Nigerians have overcome fighting colonialism.
"Another Story" is a standout track off of Burna Boy's newest album African Giant. In the music video directed by Clarence Peters, we get a Nigerian history lesson guiding viewers through continuous chaotic revolutionary visuals led by Burna Boy on horseback. Featuring burning cars, kicked-in windshields, and fallen protesters, "Another Story" takes us deep into the reality of fighting for one's independence.
