Watch Tekno's Stunning New Video For 'Jogodo'

The Nigerian singer's new music video is a celebration of the vibrancy of city life in Lagos.

When Tekno released his self-produced single "Jogodo" last month, we were ready to "whine dem Jogodo" on the dance floor. We didn't, however, realize what a romantic track it was.

That love story takes center stage in the new "Jogodo" video, released earlier today. It sees Tekno walking through the streets of Lagos, serenading a beautiful woman. As she walks through the marketplace, the singer claims that she makes "all the man dem jowaju" and dance, resulting in the story of the video.


All in all, it's a visually stunning celebration of the vibrancy of city life in Lagos. Stepping away from the extravagant lifestyle often seen in his videos, Tekno focuses more on 'everyday life': clotheslines, marketplaces, boats on the lagoon, and more.

We're not quite sure where the Asian inspiration in the video comes from (Tekno wears a woven rice hat and uses translations), but we definitely appreciate how creatively different this video is for him.

"Jogodo" is the latest in a string of singles dropped by Tekno over the last two years. He announced earlier this year that his long-anticipated EP is currently in the works, and we're definitely down to hear more tracks like "Jogodo" from him.

In the meantime, you can watch the music video for "Jogodo" below.

Following Nelson Mandela's passing in December 2013, Kenneth Kaunda became Africa's last standing hero. Now with his passing on Thursday, June 17 — after being admitted to the Maina Soko Military Hospital in Lusaka earlier in the week — this signals the end of Africa's liberation history chapter.

It is tempting to make saints out of the departed. The former Zambian struggle hero did many great things. He was, after all, one of the giants of the continent's struggle against colonialism. Ultimately however, he was a human being. And as with all humans, he lived a complicated and colourful life.

Here are six facts you might not have known about him.
