Burna Boy’s Video For “Gbona” Is All Shades Of Lit
As Burna Boy continues to give us hit after hit, we joyously travel down the rabbit hole with him.
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.
The instrumental is very traditional afrobeats, and Burna Boy pays tribute to Fela with one of his popular phrases.
The video, directed by Clarence Peters, is a visual masterpiece that takes us home. The visuals work with Burna’s lyrics to reinforce beauty, strength, and resilience.
