Feeling the Nigga (Remix) D’banj ft. AKON

D’banj is a Nigerian hip hop artist who has won several awards including the BET award for Best African Act. He has his own record label called D’banj records.In this remix of feeling the nigga by himself, D’banj collaborates with AKON. As I was watching the video, it wasn’t anything special to me about the scene or the song itself. It was the same basic video showing the artist(s) in a club or party surrounded by video vixens and alcohol bottles. It shows nice cars and women in a nice house that is supposed to belong to the artist and his girlfriend. The use of the word “nigga” makes the song and the video even more “hollywood”. It is just about the artist talking about a girl that s into him and how he can give her all of these material things. To me the video is your basic media portrayal of success and of what a women should look like and aspire to. A rich man and a nice house with nice cars and clothes. There isn’t much substance to the song itself or the video. The only thing that I thought was different from the basic music you here on the radio here is the rhythm of the song. It stayed true to the “African” sound it wasn’t to hollywood but that was the most. I was expecting more to the song. Overall I thought the song was average, nothing different from the normal hip hop music all around the world.
