Every song on the CD sounds brand-new when you push the play button; even the 3-minute song “Common Person” is included. Since its release, “Common Person” has won over many admirers thanks to how it portrays the problems of the typical person and “common individuals,” especially among Nigerians.

Fans of Burna Boy may now view the Common Person music video. Director K created the song video, released on Monday on the Grammy-winning afro-fusion artist’s YouTube channel. He also directed Rema’s Calm Down, which on Sunday overtook all other Nigerian music videos on YouTube in terms of views.

The singer’s sixth album, Love, Damini, released through Atlantic Records in July, includes Common Person. The slow-paced song, which features Burna Boy singing in a soothing baritone, declares his connection with the Nigerian working class. He asserts that despite his fame and money, he is no different from the ordinary Nigerian.

This music video truly brings the concept to life by featuring footage of Burna Boy going about several menial duties.
