    Burna Boy – 20:10:20 [Music]

    Barely one month after the release of his critically acclaimed ‘Real Life’ video featuring Stormzy, international multiple award-winning superstar and Afro-fusion pioneer, Burna Boy, releases a new song born from a place of profound devastation: ”20:10:20”.

    ”20:10:20” is a track that talks about the recent uprising in Nigeria where, in a space of 12 days, hundreds of youth peacefully protested against police brutality by a special unit of the police force – SARS (Special Anti-Robbery Squad).



    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.

    Profound and deeply moving, this song is in a stand-alone category as Burna Boy talks about corruption, godfatherism, and youth unemployment. “20:10:20” is given life in the outro with harrowing audio recorded live from the scene of the attacks.

    Burna Boy has always infused conscious lyrics in his music, from Freedom in 2010 to the smash hit “Monsters you Made” featuring Chris Martin from his recently released chart-topping Twice as Tall album. He recorded “20:10:20” as an outlet for the pain and frustration he felt after the incident.

    According to him: “the proceeds of this song will be used to support families of victims and people suffering affliction as a result of the Lekki shootings. May the heavens open and celebrate all our fallen heroes who have died for this movement from the very beginning. Rest In peace to all the beautiful lives lost”.

    Qoutable Lyrics:

    20th of October 2020
    You carry army go kill many youth for Lekki
    Na so WATER OOO WATER runaway my eyes
    Nothing you go talk wey go justify the case of their murder
    The chief of staff, the commander and the army wey carry order
    Mr President, Mr Governor
    Godfather, gbo gbo IJOBA
    All your atrocity
    All of your corner corner
    Make all the DEADBODY disturb you for your dream
    The money wey you thief yapa for your azza
    You don turn our graduates to common beggars
    All the book them go no matter
    Cuz you no go get job if you no know godfather
