New music video: Davido - Aye.
We’ve seen Chidinma go there, and more recently, Wizkid’s collaboration with Femi Kuti showed us similar visuals to the landscape, clothing and choreography we see in this video. Even Burna Boy included some traditional dancers in his ‘Tonight' video (making the song ten times more memorable and amassing over a million views on YouTube). Now, Davido's latest music video sheds the weight of luxurious goods and Western-influenced contemporary music video staples, swapping them for a proudly Nigerian aesthetic.
Whatever the reasons behind this trend, I’m seriously loving and highly appreciating seeing scenes in these locally made music videos that relate to multiple generations of Nigerians - especially coming from young musicians.

86 years ago today (1927) Gutzon Borglum began defacing the sacred BlackHills with Mt. Rushmore.
Everyone must remember that “Mt. Rushmore” (the Black Hills) does not legally belong to the federal government, and especially not to South Dakota. It was acknowledged as belonging to the sovereign Lakota Nation in the Sioux Treaty of 1868. The federal government STOLE the Hills from the Lakota, breaking the law they wrote with their own hands! The US is a repeat criminal but no one holds them accountable!

“No free negro shall come, reside in, or be within this state… the legislation shall provide by penal law for the removal of all such negroes and for their exclusion from the state” - Oregon’s 1857 constitution… not “officially” repealed until 1926.. Today Oregon has a black population of 2%.
The Black Portlanders has a goal of introducing the stories and dreams of Black Portlanders to the world. At this moment, I’m in the midst of a great challenge and fight to keep this project going. I am in the last hours of anIndiegogo campaign to fund the continuance of The Black Portlanders. We are raising a total of $15,000 for essential equipment, development funds, and to save a crucial crashed hard drive that holds the entire first 8 months of The Black Portlanders. Yes.
We must reach our goal by 11:59 Monday night. - Intisar Abioto
The struggle to be thin enough and thick enough all at the same damn time.
Losing enough weight to define your waist but not make the booty look starved.
tryna have thick thighs and defined collarbones.
Trying to obtain a cornbread fed booty with a weight watchers waist
Trying to be concave and convex at the same damn time.
