New Video: Kuku – Yoruba Girl

Washington DC based Nigerian singer/songwriter and composer, Kuku has had Paris France buzzing since his arrival on the scene with his infectious “Yoruba Soulful Roots” music. The charming, charismatic singer has now released a new video “Yoruba Girl” from his critically acclaimed February 2012 French release, “Soldier of Peace” (BÁLÓGŪN ÌRÒRÙN).

Despite the Pidgin English and Yoruba language lyrics, the song has been a crowd favorite and an instant sing along among Kuku‘s international audience. The songs catchy and witty Yoruba chorus “Moje Dodo” literally means “I eat plantain”. In connotation, Kuku flirtatiously uses the analogy of sweet edible plantain to profess his adulating desire for the Yoruba Girl.

“Yoruba Girl” is a single off Kuku‘s album – Soldier of Peace (BÁLÓGUN ÌRÒRÙN). The video was directed by Manu Dorlis & Dave I’Zen.

Check on it.

    Beautiful music and video. Simply done. I don’t know what some of you listen to, I mean who in their right mind will call this boring or lacking creativity?. Get with your culture and emancipate yourself from shallow mindedness.
