On the eve of Nigeria’s 59th Independence, Burna Boy releases visuals for “Another Story”
Being an African Giant isn’t just about showing off your Zanku, there is another side to Burna Boy, or in this case, Another Story. This politically driven song admonishes the people to take up their political responsibility and eschew tribal unrest. By using specific symbols, the issue of tribal unrest is depicted by the various dead men in their traditional outfits; the problem of the lack of justice in the country is seen by a bloodied and teary-eyed Lady Justice and the lack of enlightenment is depicted by the people in the classroom with blindfolds on. From the beginning of the video, he is clear in his message that from early on, the people are blinded by “violence,” “tribalism,” “religion,” “greed,” “poverty,” “lack of education” and much more. Something to think about as we embark on another independence day. Watch the video below!
