Little Simz - 'Point and Kill '

"Smuggler" director Ebeneza Blanche directs the “Point & Kill” video for Little Simz featuring Obongjayar. The project brought Little Simz back to Lagos for the first time since her childhood. The track celebrates a well known phrase in Nigeria, a connection between Simz & Obongjayar and the extension of that to family and friends in Nigeria. The closing scene finds Simz and Obongjayar surrounded by armed police officers, depicting a tableau of her holding a machete to a police officer's neck in a brave and defiant stance ending on an ambiguous note, giving viewers plenty to ponder.
