Celebrate The Beauty Of The 'Afrikan Lady' In This New Music Video From Aina More

Nigerian rapper Aina More celebrates the beauty of African women in her latest, London-shot music video for "Afrikan Lady."


Aina More is back and flyer than ever in her latest music video for “Afrikan Lady.” The Nigerian MC is dropping the video as a follow-up to last year’s “Girls Killing It,” and she once again comes through with pure, unadulterated black girl magic as she celebrates the many facets of the “Afrikan Lady.”

The Blake’s Daddy-directed video recreates the song’s vibrancy as More poses for a photoshoot donned in awe-worthy get-ups—styled by French-Madagascar designer Weswes Freshink—and enjoys a plate of pounded yam on a busy London road.

The video sees More "embracing various manifestations of who the Afrikan Lady may be in modern society—from the Ghetto girl from South London, to the Woman selling fabrics in the Market—all tied together with awareness of the current issues affecting Afrikan Women across borders," the artist explains.

"Afrikan Lady" spotlights global women’s movements such as Say Her Name, World Changers and Bring Back Our Girls while relishing in the beauty and resilience of “Afrikan Women.” “Damn I love my Afrikan, can’t take away my Afrikan” professes the MC.

Peep the visuals for “Afrikan Lady” below.
