FOKN Bois' Pidgen Musical Sequel 'Coz Ov Moni 2: FOKN Revenge'

FOKN Bois return with the world's second first pidgin musical 'Coz Ov Moni 2: FOKN Revenge.'


Ghana's FOKN Bois duo of Wanlov the Kubolor and M3NSA recently returned with the "world’s second first pidgen musical" Coz of Moni II: FOKN RevengeWhile the first installment was a day-in-the-life foray full of missteps and foibles, this time around revenge is the main dish served. The film follows the tongue-in-cheek duo as they go on a mission tracking down members of the machete-wielding gang that had ambushed, wounded, robbed and left them for dead.

While the rest of the world geared up for the yuletide festivities, FOKN Bois launched their latest take on societal issues at a premiere event in Accra. We expect the sophomore Coz Ov Moni film to make the rounds in the coming months. Look out for a screening in a city near you — until then, you can grab a copy of Coz Ov Moni 2: FOKN Revenge on DVD. Watch the event trailer, featuring some pretty dope footage from the film, and part one ("the world's first pidgen musical") in full below:

Dying Lagoons Reveal Mexico’s Environmental Racism

In the heart of a traditionally Black and Indigenous use area in Southwest Mexico, decades of environmental destruction now threatens the existence of these communities.

On an early morning in September 2017, in a little fishing village in the Pacific coast of Oaxaca, called Zapotalito, thousands of dead fish floated on the surface of the Chacahua-Pastoría lagoons. A 7.1-magnitude earthquake, which rattled Mexico City on September 19, was felt as far down as Zapotalito, and the very next morning, its Black, Indigenous and poor Mestizo residents, who depend on the area's handful of lagoons for food and commerce, woke up to an awful smell and that terrible scene of floating fish.
