Watch Olamide & His Goons in 'Awon Goons Mi'

Watch Olamide and His Goons in the new "Awon Goons Mi" video.


Shortly after clinching the Nigerian Entertainment Awards for his Baddest Guy Ever Liveth album, YBNL head honcho Olamide debuted a new rap single called“Awon Goons Mi." After releasing an impressive 1-minute animated teaser video two weeks after its audio release, the virtuoso rapper has dropped the official visuals for the street anthem single. The video, directed by cinematographer Unlimited L.A., features an insane list of cameo appearances ranging from DJ Enimoney to Samklef, Mo’Cheddah, Cynthia Morgan, Do2tun, CDQ, Ketchup, YQ, Alex, Phenom, Efa, Do2tun, Reminisce, Pheelz, to Igbo flowing rapper Phyno, popular West African artists came in deep. YBNL’s recently signed Lil Kesh and Viktoh also make an appearance among the heavy weighters. In the video Olamide receives a shape up from  his barber before joining his goons in a dimly lit, smokey warehouse where they await in a cypher circle. Surrounded by many, King Badoo delivers Yoruba bars over a  frenzied Pheelz-produced beat, which captures the rapper's versatility and makes for a heavy hitting 3-minute rhyme fest. Watch " Awon Goons Mi" below and see how many cameos you can spot out yourself.
