Piggybacking off making it to the Billboard World Album chart for a second time with Made In Lagos, his fourth studio album released last year and to awesome reception, Wizkid has dropped the visuals for Ginger featuring Burna Boy.
Teasing snippets and shots from the video, and throwing fans into a fit of frustration, Wizid has perfected the art of teaching patience. Ginger is many things, but its most dominant themes are an exercise in the male ego and jewel-cut hedonism. Opening frames reveal Wizkid in a layered Telfar cable-knit off-shoulder sweater in a warehouse-like enclosure, video vixens prancing about.
Burna Boy soon appears and throws in his weight, never exactly overshadowing Wizkid visually. It’s a stage big enough for two huge mascots of Afrobeats to shine and we are here to be entertained.
