Watch Seun Kuti & Egypt 80's 'African Smoke' Video Featuring Blitz The Ambassador

Watch the music video for Seun Kuti & Egypt 80's "African Smoke" featuring Blitz The Ambassador.


"African Smoke" is the second music video to come from Seun Kuti & Egypt 80's standout A Long Way To The Beginning LP from earlier this year. The single sees Seun Kuti linking up once again with Ghana's Blitz The Ambassador for a politically-charged, guitar & brass-heavy production "inspired by a poem of Keith Richards." In the video, crafted by "IMF" director Jerome Bernard, Seun and Blitz join raw material workers in a factory as they mold & build the instruments that will later be used to perform their inflamed anthem. Watch the clip for Seun Kuti and Blitz The Ambassador's "African Smoke" below and, for more, read our interview with Seun about his new album. The Robert Glasper co-produced A Long Way To The Beginning is out now on iTunes.
