This is Africa

Raised in Somalia during Somali’s Civil War, K’naan brings new perspective to the phrase ‘This is Africa’. The video utilizes? African inspired graphics as well as audio and video montages that speak to his upbringing, political thought and experiences. The video was shot and directed by Nabil Elderkin a director/photographer who has directed videos for artists such as Kanye West, Common, Will.I.AM, Seal, and John Legend. Enjoy the video.
