“Diamonds get their character from the African Woman” – Ghanaian Star Becca releases music video for her track – “African Woman”


After a short interlude, Ghanaian music star, Becca has released a brand new music video. The video is for her track “African Woman” and as you probably guessed from the title, it is a melodic ode to the strength and character of the “African Woman”. The song is the third single from her forthcoming sophomore album.

The video starts off with a quote “Diamonds get their character from the African Woman” and then transitions into scenes featuring Becca surrounded by lush landscape interspersed with scenes featuring a young girl facing various challenges in her village.

Great song, powerful video.

The video was directed by Samad Davis for the Davis Media Group.

Side Note: Ghana is beautiful! The landscape in the video is breathtaking…

    I haven’t watched the video yet but the initial caption about Diamonds getting their character from the African woman makes m go wow. A reasonable artist. And the screen shot looks nice. Looking forward to watchin it.

    This will be the first African music video I’ll watch in 3 mths. I got tired of the sameness and unimaginative videos
