Three days, Nigerian star Patoranking released the bloody heartbreaking visual for his record ‘Abobi’. An aerial view of Rumuokoro, Port Harcourt, at 6:45 AM, opens the Dammy Twitch direction. Next, the viewer sees various people in motion on land and in the sea. Unisex soldiers ride in boats with machine guns raised in the air as others are foot-scouring an area for civilians to murder.
As the description on YouTube explains, the award-winning artist from Lagos State covers “societal issues of police brutality, [neighbourhood] wars and tribal [and] religious conflicts as a catalyst to remind not just Nigerians or Africans but the world that we are one.”
If you aren’t easily moved by fake blood, or corn syrup, I invite you to watch the Nigerian Reggae-Dancehall star’s latest music video to see how it ends.
