Watch the official music video to – the “Wonderful” song by Burna Boy. The song was produced by Telz. The video was directed by Director K.
In a statement, Burna Boy explained that “Wonderful” serves as a reminder to him that “no matter how far you go, or how hard you work; you must be ready to come home.” In the video for “Wonderful,” premiering exclusively on ELLE.com, home is exactly where Burna takes us. The visual opens with a giant gorilla waking up Burna from a deep sleep. He’s met by a phalanx of dancers dressed in traditional garments, and they move freely around the Nigerian star. As day turns to night and back, he joins in with the dancing, because even Burna can’t resist the gbedu (big drums).
“The objective of the ‘Wonderful’ video is two-fold,” he tells ELLE.com. As the precursor to Twice as Tall, his fourth studio album, “Wonderful” is Burna’s way of ushering in the next chapter of his music. The album “is deliberately set ‘in the land of Warriors, Kings and Queens’ to depict the strength in our origins as Black people, as Africans. We are the most resilient people, always able to find the silver lining in every situation and turn it to a cause for communal celebration. Then we live to fight another day,” he adds. – Elle Magazine
