Olamide Drops the Official Video for His Latest Single 'Poverty Die'

The artist commands poverty to die in the new music video for his prayerful single.

Olamide shares the official music video for his ultra-catchy prayer warrior single "Poverty Die."

After sharing an animated video upon the song's initial release, the Nigerian rapper and singer is back with a second black-and-white visual that sees him commanding poverty to die once again.

It opens with the artist draped in white, praying for poverty's downfall alongside Nigerian actress Eniola Badmus, comedian Woli Arole and others before he heads to a classroom of students dressed in all-black with skeleton ski-masks. The two shots make for a striking visual contrast, but it's clear that everyone is united by one single mission: to put an end to poverty.

They appear to have succeeded by the end of the video, as Olamide reemerges in color and is surrounded by heaps of cash.

Check out the Unlimited L.A-directed music video below.
