Burna Boy Drops ‘Gbono’ Video
Burna Boy journey to recapture the height of love he once enjoyed is ongoing. With each body of work he put out, he continues to win in the court of public opinion. The latest of his work is the song ‘Gbono’. He released the audio earlier in the day and as night falls, the video is ready.
‘Gbona’ is a politically conscious track, in which Burna Boy subtly addresses the direct relativity of one’s wealth to their respectability. There is also the reminder to enjoy oneself and ’Jeun soke’ when the opportunity presents itself, but always stay sharp.
As usual, the messages on the track are delivered with a light tone. The video, directed by Clarence Peters, is a visual masterpiece that takes us home. Again, we see tributes to Fela with dances commonly associated with his dancers and costumes that are a modern adaptation of their style.
