In late 2019, Master KG and Nomcebo Zikode created an alluring body of work that was undoubtedly the top choice for African song of the year in any relevant and honest conversation. When the former teamed up with Burna Boy on one of the hit single’s numerous remixes earlier this year, he not only revved up the waning energy surrounding the song but increased its popularity. Now, with Jerusalema still dominating our airwaves, the celebrated trio gives it another chance at widespread fame by sharing its video.
In the video, co-directed by South Africa’s Kyle White and Nigeria’s Clarence Peters, the sonic powerhouses stick to their individual strengths, performing less but exerting much energy in their mimes which in turn inspires the feelings of hope and salvation their lyrics seek to set off.
Burna Boy stands at the top of a highrise building in Lagos as he commands the power the combination of the song’s meaning, it’s fame and his commandeering presence attracts while Nomebo and Master KG keep the peace back in South Africa.
