Earlier today, Jiggyboy FC head huncho, Kida Kudz released a brand new single titled “Animalistic“, he has followed up with an extremely lit video for the sizzling hot single.
The fiery visuals portray scenes of Kida performing atop a burning bus of faceless prisoners, a lantern-lit tree and ring of fire that in turn represent the theme of this powerful track that interrogates imprisonment, its socio-political implications and the psychological effects on the psyche of persons that have been incarcerated.
Sharing his thoughts on the track and its video, Kida Kudz explained: “Writing ‘Animalistic’ was a spiritual process for me. I woke up early one morning, grabbed my pen and paper… started jotting down to the instrumental and tapped into the forces I needed; the lyrics just flowed from me. I was painting a perfect picture of an African boy speaking to his people, trying to preach to them in a kind of way.
You can vibe to the song but at the same time it is sending a message across to young people to stay up and stay woke! ‘Gangsterism got us locked in prison’ was a real life story of a family member that had been taken away that same morning when I wrote the verse. These are real things that I put in my song, things that are happening around me and that other people are experiencing in the world.“
The video was directed by iO Filmworks and shot in Lagos, Nigeria.
