Banx & Ranx X Kojo Funds 'Traffic Jam' by Meji Alabi
Meji Alabi's colourful and chaotic video for Banx & Ranx and Kojo Funds' Traffic Jam shuts down the streets in Accra, Ghana.
In a hot and sweaty queue of colourful vehicles, our artists are getting restless as the whole street comes to a halt. Taking a look inside other cars, we see a variety of characters, including a group of nuns, masked characters (with an especially horrifying caricature of Donald Trump among them) and a travelling dance act.
Before long, the tension has spilled over into a massive party - people are dancing on top of their vehicles, and Kojo is taking the lead with a fierce performance down the middle of the queues. Feel-good and bursting with energy and vibrance, Dave Pienaar's cinematography utilises a kaleidoscope of rich colour, frenetic movement and even a few old school dutch angles to match the pace of the track.
Lasting well into the night, when darkness has eclipsed the road, the group eventually stop worrying about wherever they were going, and instead embrace the chaotic party atmosphere.
