When many think of Nigeria, their memories are those that probably those that occurred during some Christmas or the other. Lagos’ streets flood with IJGBs and over a three week span, basically everyone puts their worries on hold. The Lagos bred will often warn that Christmas is not a true reflection of what it is like to live in the city all year round. British-Nigerian afrobeat artist, Yxng Bane is one of the many whose experiences with Lagos often come to mind as shown by his recently released video for Corner featuring Maleek Berry.
A feel-good record reminiscing the days on the come-up sees Bane show off the life he lives as he sings “Pockets full of USD” as he left his mark on Lagos over the Christmas. Featuring his performance at Nativeland, club nights at Cubana and Quilox, unlicensed sirens, mopol officers, photo shoots and the hustle and bustle of Obalende, the video is definitely representative of the finer side of the lives many experience on those trips to Lagos every year.
If you’re yet to experience Christmas in Lagos, buy that ticket for December 2018 now, it’s unparalleled.
