Watch Burna Boy’s “Dangote” video

A creatively conscious look into unemployment in Nigeria.

March 04, 2019

Burna Boy is here with the music video to his newest single "Dangote." Watch the clip up above now.


The visual begins with a statistic about unemployment in Burna's home country of Nigeria. What follows is a tale of citizens from all walks of life striving to make money in their day-to-day lives. Burna doesn't actually appear in the video until the very end, as his face pops up on a battered TV screen while he hums the song's ending.

The audio version of "Dangote" dropped last week. In the summer of 2018, FADER profiled the Afropop star as part of our ongoing Gen F series. Read it here.
