  • Kasey Edokpayi: What a tune from a talented young man. God, I love my country so much that I can never wish for a better country, other than Nigeria. Bad leaders yes, corruption yes. Regardless all of the aforementioned, Nigeria is a great country with beautiful people with style and swag that you can never find anywhere else on planet earth. God, bless Nigeria and rid her of bad leaders. Amen

  • diana busolo1 month ago: Well it is a general African issue high unemployment rates but it is good to address it in music
  • Samuel Obeng: Who are the 427 idiots who disliked this video? ‍♂
  • dapo sanwo: A classic and timeless depiction of the struggles of the real average Nigeria. Notice that even burna does not pretend to be actually poor by not appearing in the video. The Push, the hustle, the complex irony: lagos traffic, the bus preacher, the drug marketer, the phone theft, the groping on the bus, the shrine saying drugs are not allowed. Complex Ironies, Struggles. Even the richest black man is still hustling and pushing his products. It is just too beautiful to describe in words. Real work of art.
  • Khern Sandy: Damn you will go down as a legend. Dope music while highlighting the social ills of Nigeria . Do your thing brother. Locked on all the way from Trinidad
  • Oyewole Bukunmi: This kind of song will make you keep pushing when you're about to give up. You'll never give up, you just can't!
  • Blinks wiz: Who is feeling that Fela vibe??
  • Mutrixx MTX: This song is actually a wakeup call. Like few months ago I had no idea want I wanted to study in college but this song just gave me a new perspective in life Long live Burna boy he’s the truth
  • Nosa Yaba: If you smoking weed and listening to this vibes.... hit that like for me bro. Oluwa Burna

The message of the song is an eye opener to the public. Not everyone would see that, hence having both positive and negative reactions. Burna Boy Dangote is such an awesome track.
