Afro B's 'Shaku Shaku' Dance Video Will Jump Start Your Week

Exclusive: the new Afrowave banger gets a dance visual.

Afro B, the man behind the massive hit "Drogba (Joanna)," recently dropped his follow-up single "Shaku Shaku," which premiered with us last week.

The new track is yet-another banger from the Ivorian-British artist, one which sees him link up with frequent collaborators Team Salut, the production duo behind some of the biggest Afrowave hits coming out right now.

Afro B is now premiering the new dance video for "Shaku Shaku" exclusively here today with OkayAfrica.


"The Shaku isn't made just for anyone in particular, it's made for anyone that wants enjoy a piece of African culture and I just want my music to make people feel good and included," Afro B tells OkayAfrica via e-mail. "The video was so much fun to shoot, and the director, Visionaire done a great job, shout out everyone that was involved."

"I want listeners to get in their zone and element whilst listening to this and feel my authentic African vibe," the Afrowave hitmaker told us when we premiered the new single. "I didn't want it to be the exact same vibe as 'Drogba'—they're two very different sounding tracks. I also wanted to showcase this biggest dance of this year, the shaku shaku."

Watch the new "Shaku Shaku [Dance Video]" below.
