BANTU release the official video to “Ka? Ma?a Du?p??” the second single off their 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 member, 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 share their personal stories.
The final verse, sung in Yoruba, is used to invoke the beauty of the language and its deeply positive proverbs and adages that connect to the song’s title “Ka? Ma?a Du?p??” which, translated into English, means “let us be thankful”
“Ka?Ma?a Du?p??” is available at www.bantucrew.com & on all digital platforms worldwide
