Burna Boy ft Chris Martin 'Monsters You Made' (for the BET Hip-Hop Awards) by Filmawi
Filmawi has created a hugely impactful video for Burna Boy’s performance of the heartfelt Monsters You Made for the BET Hip-Hop Awards.
Evoking the era of the Black Panthers, the Nigerian superstar performs to students in front of footage of peaceful mass protests through the decades, in an atmospheric old building that is now a place of learning. The youths absorb Burna's words, while he is supported by a passionate live band - and Chris Martin appears, performing the chorus, as part of the film projection.
Filmawi’s scene-setting and measured approach compliment the song's impassioned message to stop police brutality everywhere - including the movement in Nigeria to dismantle the notorious SARS (Special Anti-Robbery Squad). The band are wearing #StopPoliceBrutality T-shirts and as the performance ends, fists are held high, as a list of names of innocent Nigerians killed by SARS appears in the final frames. This a video that lingers in the mind long after it finishes.
