Afro B's Music Video for 'Melanin' Is a Colorful Love Letter To Black Women

Watch the beautiful music video for Afro B's last single of the year exclusively on OkayAfrica.

Afro B is coming off the heels of his banger "Shaku Shaku" to grace us with his last single of 2018 containing a message that should remain a constant reminder.


The Ivorian-British hitmaker links up with producers Team Salut for "Melanin"—a 'pon pon' ode to black women and their beautiful skin. In the stripped-down single, you'll hear Afro B croon over his beautiful black woman and their love that can't be beat.

"In this sensitive time in society, I want to remind people to be proud of their appearance," Afro B shares with OkayAfrica about the inspiration behind the new single. "Especially my black queens—because I feel they don't get appreciated enough."

The music video, shot by Visionaire Pictures, indeed features beautiful black queens who don eye-catching, bright wax print outfits with stunning shots of nature as the backdrop. This visual is a color-filled love letter to black women and we are here for it.
