BANTU has released the official video to ‘Ká Máa Dúpẹ́’ the second single off the band’s critically acclaimed album Agberos International.
Shot in the ancient city of Abeokuta with everyday people interacting with BANTU’s lead female vocalist and other band members, this life affirming song celebrates the ability of the human spirit to triumph despite the odds.
The opening line of the first verse sets the tone as BANTU readily admit how difficult it is to be optimistic when it feels like the world is constantly crushing down on you.
Themes of loneliness and vulnerability are openly addressed alongside remedial themes of gratitude and
resistance as the band members share their personal stories.
The final verse, sung in Yoruba, invokes the beauty of the language and its deeply positive proverbs and adages that connect to the song’s title “Ká Máa Dúpẹ́” which, translated into English, means “let us be thankful”
“KáMáa Dúpẹ́” is directed by Olasunkanmi Adebayo with Olubanjo Ireyomi
& White Adeniyi as DOP, while Ade Bantu is the producer. It is available at www.bantucrew.com & on all digital platforms worldwide.
