Ego Trippin’: D’banj’s New Music Video Is Contemporary Art For Accomplished Braggarts


D’banj couldn’t have picked a better song to shoot a video for. Don’t Tell Me Nonsense, an absolute club rocker off his DB Records collaborative album D’ King’s Men, gets a video treatment for the ages in the form of this feisty visual that’s worthy of a double take.

Featuring ground-stumping dance moves choreographed by leading Nigerian contemporary dancer Kaffy, edgy costumes, special effects that transcend Nollywood’s best attempts and a lot of smoke, the dark video takes cues from the visuals for Beyoncé’s Run The World (Girls) as well as Jay-Z and Kanye West’s No Church In The Wild/Run This Town. Chalk that up to D’banj’s G.O.O.D. Music influence. Get a load of the Matt Max-directed spectacle below.
