BurnaBoy – 20: 10: 20

BurnaBoy puts out a new record dedicated to the heroes, who lost their lives at Lekki Toll Gate, on the 20th of October, 2020 while protesting against police brutality and bad governance in Nigeria.

On the 20th of October, 2020, these events culminated in the infamous “Lekki massacre” where the military shot into the crowd of defenseless 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.
