Tracka de Day: Naija Boyz "Black and Yellow"

[embed width="560"][/embed]


We haven't posted on this hilarious remix of Wiz Khalifa's "Black and Yellow" by Nigeria's Naija Boyz yet, but it's surely one of the best parody tracks of the year. The Boyz, who focus their energy on parody driven remixes of Top 40 Hip-Hop songs repeatedly condone the importance of being proud to be African, and maintaining Nigerian culture. "Just got a call from Naija, this just in- too many dark girls want to pretend that they light skinned." This remix of Black and Yellow is an ode to the different shades of African woman, while poking fun at white culture and their lack of understanding for African woman .
