    Nice concept….BUT why is one hit wonder Lola Rae featured on the song?
    There are so many other female artists more successful and worthy to be on the song… Waje, Yemi Alade, Seyi Shay….I don’t get her presence, looks like she must be dating the owner of the project lol

      Lol I was thinking the same thing, she’s a cute girl but no where as musically relevant as any of the other more deserving artists on the song. Great song though and the video is beautiful and simple

    love the skinny guy’s part the most (sorry dont know his name), he has an amazing voice and who is the white hottie? feeling Tiwa’s purple lipstick. All round nice.

    Pls no one get mad at me but the artist parts didn’t flow in the song. it just sounded like a hot mess. too much jumbled up stuff. Lola rae shouldn’t have been in it. They should have put that famous group from south Africa( forget their name but the one with the guy and girl)

    We need singers like Fela….to speak out to the government…we need serious awareness and change…

    okay this was okay would have been better with tuface and fally ipupa added, plus love diamonds voice. i personally think that lola wasnt good for this. just my opinion ..

    Very nice video and concept, however when we say Africa, we do mean a whole continent with approximately 55 countries… I see only 4 with Ghana being the official ‘rep’ in this video.
    I believe that if the song is about AFRICA then at least it should be represented well.. If I were from Cameroun, Morocco, Botswana or Namibia, I possibly wouldn’t connect with the song / video.
    Also, we keep trying to correct the misconception about Africa as a continent and not a country.. In my opinion, this doesn’t do it justice at all, there’s so much more.

      I agree with you…I wish Mafikizolo was in it. Flavor/Fally Ipupa/J Martins would have put some highlife in it.

      Yuup! the video is great but missing Mafikizolo and a highlife person

    Lovely video, nice a bright love the colours. Tiwa looked great, Lola rae needs to change up her wardrobe does she only own shorts that are 3 sizes too small? Shorts are not for everyone my dear…
    Davido and Diamond Platnumz killed it!! Sarkodia held back on his verse, but he was still great…even at his worst he’s still one of the best!
