Burna Boy has released an inspirational music video for “23”, the 10th track on his Grammy award-winning album “Twice as Tall”.
The Skread produced track is a statement about how music made him victorious and it was inspired by basketball player Michael Jordan, whose jersey number was “23”. Burna Boy was clearly motivated by the basketball icon in the pursuit of his dreams, as he sings, “I go be all I can be, oluwaburna ma pami, the music make me feel I be Jordan…”
The adrenalizing video for “23” was set in motion with the African Giant’s display of a certification plaque to a concert audience, before he’s seen soliloquizing in a room while Michael Jordan’s legendary jersey number is displayed throughout the video. In other scenes of the Clarence Peters directed video, women are honoured through several characters with ambitious goals for themselves, aspiring basketball players (one of whom is wheelchair-bound at birth), a young singer-songwriter, a dancer, and a music producer.
