Video: Bajah + The Dry Eye Crew do the "Jacky Jacky"


We first saw this over on okayplayer, and instantly knew we had to re-post here on OKA, it was just too good. After rocking the okayafrica launch event in front of 15,000 screaming fans last evening, Bajah + the Dry Eye Crew unveiled a new website and launched their first official video in which they teach the villagers of Tokeh Village how to do the latest dance craze, the "Jacky Jacky." Watch the kids, elders, and fishermen of this tiny Sierra Leonean town get down with the Crew. This track, produced by Rashad "Tumbin' Dice" Smith (Erykah Badu, Q-Tip, + more), will have you doing the Jacky Jacky wherever you go. Warning: dancing along to this at work may attract unwanted attention from the opposite sex. Look for B-DEC's album out early this fall on One Haven Records.
