VIDEO: Ibejii – Gonto

By  | 

London-born, Nigerian singer, Ibejii the storyteller, who uses folklore, metaphor, and vernacular to deliver tales of love and loss with a keen sensitivity has released the visuals to his single Gonto.

Gonto is the first single off Ibejii’s forthcoming fifth project to be released later this year.

Starring some of Nollywood’s finest – Dakore Egbuson-Akande, Christian Paul, Ruby Akubueze and Emmanuel Osahor – Gonto was shot live on stage at Terra Kulture, Lagos and features scenes from the yet to be announced and highly-anticipated movie by Ibejii.

Over a sweeping fusion of echoing keys and heavy drums punctuating Ibejii’s words, Gonto is an anthem that speaks to any instance where the oppressed move to resist the lingering excesses of oppressors, as seen in Nigeria and other parts of the world these past months.

Among other things like its nod to Ibejii’s depth-filled vocals and affinity for music with meaning, Gonto is, in a way, a celebration of courage and looming freedom.
