You Need To See Juls & Burna Boy's Animated Video For 'Gwarn'

Follow an animated Juls and Burna Boy as they serenade their girls in this amazing (and hilarious) new video.

"Gwarn," the ultra-smooth afrobeats collaboration from British-Ghanaian producer Juls and Nigerian star Burna Boy, has been on constant heavy rotation these days.


The new single has now gotten an incredible animated visual to go along with it—and its probably the best music video you'll see all month.

Follow an animated Juls and Burna below as they serenade and lounge with their girls in this Poka-directed video.

"I had fun working with my guy Poka on this visual," Juls tells The Fader. "I really love cartoons and I wanted to switch it up a little and add some sexy vibes to animation. 'Gwarn' is one of my favourite records this year, and I hope everyone enjoys the video as much as I do!"

"Gwarn" is the lead single from Juls' upcoming Ojekoo EP. Check out the animated video below and a few select screen grabs underneath.

Burna Boy to Donate Proceeds from Upcoming Show In South Africa to Victims of Xenophobic Violence

The "Africans Unite" concert is slated for this November, and the bill also includes Jidenna, Kwesta and more.

Burna Boy will return to South Africa for the first time following the recent spate of xenophobic violence against Nigerians and other foreign African nationals.

In the height of the violence in September, Burna Boy vowed to never return to the country. Major Nigerian artists including Tiwa Savage cancelled appearances in the country, and echoed sentiments calling on the South African government to take adequate measures to protect foreign nationals. "I have not set foot in SA since 2017. And I will NOT EVER go to South Africa again for any reason until the SOUTH AFRICAN government wakes the f**k up and really performs A miracle because I don't know how they can even possibly fix this," he wrote on Twitter. A radio station in Zambia even banned music by South African artists from their airwaves following the violence.
