Sarkodie Shares The Warehouse Visuals For 'Revenge Of The Spartans'

Ghanaian star Sarkodie drops his first music video of the year for the military single "Revenge Of The Spartans."


Ghanaian star rapper Sarkodie shares his first music video of the new year with the clean visuals for "Revenge Of The Spartans." The David Nicol-sey-directed video takes place in a vacant warehouse space and alternates between straightforward shots of Sarko rapping next a high-school marching band, gyrating dancers, by a piano centerpiece, and from a makeshift office. They all make for an almost surrealist companion to the military horns and snare of the track. Watch the video for "Revenge of the Spartans" below.
