Naira Marley dedicates “Koleyewon” music video to those who lost their lives during the #EndSARS protests

Published

Naira Marley latest music video is shot in light of the current state of things, especially the insurgency in Nigeria as a country and this moved him to dedicate “Koleyewon” video to the lives lost during the peaceful #EndSARS protests.

“Koleyewon” description on YouTube reads: “The track highlights the current state and the challenges the country has faced this year; most especially the #ENDSars movement.”

The video begins by showing youths engaging in a peaceful #EndSARS protest before suddenly being gunned down by SARS officers themselves from a minibus.

The video for “Koleyewon” proceeds to show youthful uprising in response to the massacre shown earlier in the video; the youths used here are young ones (aged between 9-14) who undertake their operation in classic Biafra fashion, going after every SARS officers they can find, therefore causing a riot.

“Koleyewon” challenges the government’s decision towards the sufferings and under-par living conditions of an average Nigerian but Naira Marley does so in his well known Marlian Style, choosing danceable Afrobeat instrumentals produced by Niphkeys and his usual (and quite becoming overused) flows and melody to deliver the message through his lyrics.

The music video ended with theses words written on the screen as a message from Naira Marley denouncing violence.

The Headies 2020 successfully held last week Sunday (21st February) where Nigerian rapper and reality TV star Laycon was one of the guest performers at the event but the major takeaway from his overall outing, turned out to be the gigantic pair of shoes he rocked while performing which made for a trend on microblogging platform, Twitter. A week later, Laycon has come out to tell the world why he chose to perform in those shoes.

Laycon who performed with DJ Neptune to the tunes of their hit single—‘Nobody’— wore a black round-neck vest to go with a matching glittering jacket and pant, topping the clothing with an all-white sneakers, a gigantic one at that, drawing comparison to the massive footwears Nephilims like Goliath wore back in the Biblical times.

On what looked to be an Open-Mic performance, Laycon addressed the audience on why he wore such “oversized” pair of shoes to an event as grand as The Headies. Laycon said: “I told my stylist ‘I have different shoes but I want this one, it’s very big, it makes a statement.’ Every step I take is a big step towards wherever it is I’m going to and I need a big shoe for that.” He adds: “And it is also create a path for other people to follow, to know that the moves this guy has made, the can make those moves and also be successful.”

This however did not go down well with fans as they have tagged this as flimsy excuses and weak PR attempt at redeeming something inconsequential. Others just reacted with laughing emojis, treating the words of Laycon on the video as joke.
