Lekki Shooting: Burna Boy Captures Grief, Frustration In New Single ‘20:10:20’

Published

on

Barely one month after the release of his critically acclaimed ‘Real Life’ video featuring Stormzy, international multiple award-winning superstars and Afro-fusion pioneer, Burna Boy, has released a new song born from a place of profound devastation: “20:10:20”.

Released on Friday, October 30, ’20:10:20′ talks about the recent uprising in Nigeria where, in a space of 12 days, hundreds of youth peacefully protested against police brutality by a special unit of the police force – Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

On October 20, these events culminated in the infamous “Lekki massacre” where the military shot into the crowd of defenceless protesters sitting on the ground, singing the Nigerian national anthem.

Produced by The Elements, ’20:10:20′ opens in a conversational style with a simple melody that is constant throughout the song.

Unequivocally vocal, Burna Boy addresses the social and political injustices in lyrics that will resonate with many Nigerians: “Water runaway my eye! Nothing wey you go talk wey go justify the case of their murder.”

It is a clarion call to the appropriate authorities to investigate and bring to book those responsible for this incident.
