New Music: D’Banj - Bother You (for ‘Half of a Yellow Sun).
With the release of the film’s first official movie poster and now, this title song courtesy of D’Banj, the cinematic adaption of Nigerian writer Chimamanda Adichie’s Half of a Yellow Sun is becoming all the more real.
Now, on the music video itself. Baba god, forgive me o, but what is going on? When did D’Banj become a stereotypical b-grade r&b singer? He’s even taken his trademark shades off, unbuttoned his crisp white shirt (and let the wind do the rest), and borrowed moves from this guy. It’s hard to take the entire thing seriously. As a matter of fact, I burst out laughing several times.
If anything, this song makes me not want to see the movie.
All Africa, All the time.
