Wizkid Shares The South African-Shot Video For 'Expensive Shit'

Nigerian StarBoy Wizkid drops the South African-shot music video for his afrobeat-influenced single "Expensive Shit."


Wizkid comes through with the music video for his recently released afrobeat-leaning single "Expensive Shit." The South African-shot visuals follow the Nigerian StarBoy through a mansion the morning after an epic party as he collects his things and makes his way to the next night's festivities. The Sarz-produced "Expensive Shit," which just dropped last week, nods towards Fela Kuti‘s seminal 1975 album of the same name and is a likely inclusion on Wizkid’s rumored 2015 full-length album. Wizkid's had a fruitful year releasing the videos for “Ojuelegba” and“Sound It,” collaborating with 2face Idibia, getting a remix from Sarkodie, and linking up with South Africa’s Uhuru for “Duze.” Watch the Sesan-directed music video for "Expensive Shit" over here and download the song below.

The past five years have seen the emergence of an army of young artists eager to reclaim their languages (Rwanda has four official languages) and identity, interlacing their music with influences that stretch far and wide.

Here are 11 artists that have emerged in the past five years to put their mark on the ever-changing Rwandan soundscape.
