Watch Burna Boy x D'banj's Biker Video For 'Won Da Mo'

Watch Burna Boy and D'banj's biker video for "Won Da Mo."


It seems like Burna Boy has traded in his eccentric outfits from "Yawa Dey" for a sleeker look in his latest video for "Won Da Mo." This might be due in part to the presence of his partner in crime: the one and only 'Mr. Endowed' D'banj . The visuals recall certain scenes in Biker Boyz, with plenty of leather outfits on display and (almost) all-black everything — although, thankfully, Burna Boy didn’t abandon his gold jewelry. D’Banj also classes it up with his sleek suit and red-bottoms. Though the video overall might be more sombre than some of Burna Boy’s previous efforts, the energy is still as high as ever for the Godfather Productions music video. This  DeeVee-produced club banger, the first of two collaborations between Burna and D'banj, confirms that the two Nigerians know how to fill a dance floor and make it jump.

How You Can Help Nigeria’s #EndSARS Protests

We round up some ways you can support the movement and its cause, no matter where you are in the world.

Widespread protests against Nigeria's notorious Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) are becoming more of a revolution. The movement is an outcry from youths demanding a general reform of the country, majorly characterized by poor governance, with a focus on the harassment and assaults committed by SARS. The movement has been raging through the city of Lagos for the past three weeks, as protesters home and abroad have taken to the streets in masses to express their keen dissatisfaction.

Hashtags like #EndSARS, #EndPoliceBrutality, and #EndBadGovernanceInNigeria have brandished across all social media platforms to amplify the voices of the youth people fighting back. These hashtags have, in turn, gained traction with the help of celebrities like singers Rihanna, Demi Lovato, and Beyoncé, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, and many others. Nigerian stars, Falz, Runtown, Tiwa Savage, Davido, Wizkid, Burna Boy, and many more also joined in the movement, as many of them took to the streets with placards.

To date, the peacefully protesting Nigerians' needs have not been met. With said needs not being satisfied as they demand justice for lives lost due to the brutal and corrupt practices of police officers.

We have rounded up some ways you can support this movement and its cause, no matter where you are in the world.
