Earlier this month, Burna Boy liberated his new single “Odogwu,” which pays homage to his Igbo heritage. This week, he gifts us with a lively visual for the track, which is direcrted by TG Omori and sees Burna Boy acting as the leader of his Nigerian tribe, complete with traditional dances and rituals throughout different locations.

The Kel P-produced track is Burna Boy’s second since the release of December’s “Money Play.” Prior to that, he delivered his chart-topping fourth studio album African Giant, which earned numerous awards for the Afro-fusion architect and ended up on many publications’ best of lists. Presumably, fans can expect a new project to follow in 2020.

In the meantime, check out his music video for “Odogwu” below, which is available on all major streaming platforms. Also included are Burna’s forthcoming “Twice As Tall Would Tour” dates, which — if the world’s current crisis doesn’t cause any postponements — is set to kick off this May.
