In the visual for a new dance tune called ‘Ogwo’, Ugandan artist Eddy Kenzo displays what it’s like between African law keepers and suspects. There’s a detailed explanation for the inspiration of the visual, so instead of coming to personal conclusions, I’ve decided to share the text with you below.
The first scene, the inmates wearing yellow are out in the fields working under the watchful eye of the prison officer, they dance as they work. Their dance moves are quite catchy that their master joins in the dance. A dance that he enjoys more than the inmates.
It’s during this time that the inmates use the dance distraction to escape from their master. A successful move that the master notices some time later and decides to chase them. As the inmates look for shelter in the community, spreading their dance moves to those they meet and by the time the master gets to the community, it’s hard to tame them or evacuates them from the community. The master at this time realizes how hard it will be for him to take back the inmates so he decides to join them instead as a sign that they are all human and we all deserve respect and love no matter who the master or the inmate is.
The last scene happens in the school to represent the transformation from the prison to acquiring an education and a good life. The inmates embrace education and the master comes to support them.
