Makemba ft. GOHOU – Kenzow

Makemba, another name for plantain, is a feel good afro beat by Burkinabé artist Kenzow, featuring Ivorian actor and comedian Michel Gohou. Kenzow took his love for plantain and wanted to share it with the world in a carefree way that stayed relevant to his African roots. I partnered up with Miro LaFlaga to create this theatrical, light hearted, Looney Tunes inspired video that could be appreciated internationally. Enjoy!
