Burna Boy’s latest visual release simply put is “Wonderful.”
In a statement, Burna Boy explained that “Wonderful” serves as a reminder to him that “no matter how far you go, or how hard you work; you must be ready to come home.
“The objective of the ‘Wonderful’ video is two-fold,” he tells ELLE.com. As the precursor to Twice as Tall, his fourth studio album, “Wonderful” is Burna’s way of ushering in the next chapter of his music. “The album is deliberately set ‘in the land of Warriors, Kings and Queens’ to depict the strength in our origins as Black people, as Africans. We are the most resilient people, always able to find the silver lining in every situation and turn it to a cause for communal celebration. Then we live to fight another day,” he adds.
The African Giant vocally floats over the bouncy, cheerful melody as he manifests a life as successful as Nigerian lawyer and investment banker Adebayo Ogunlesi (“As I dey hustle like Adebayo Ogunlesi/No go talk say me I too lazy”) and encourages listeners to continue dancing.
