Chisom Uzosike is a young first generation Nigerian-American producer, rapper, creative director, and recent collaborator of The Black Opera hip hop collective. Born in Detroit and raised in Maryland, Chisom takes great pride in his African heritage in his fun new video for “Africa Get Money,” from his debut EP The Jordan Year.
Directed by Cy Abdelnour, the video is a form of unadulterated black joy that speaks to the children of immigrants when they achieve their version of the “American Dream.”
“‘Africa Get Money’ reminds me of all the things that made Nigerian parties fun growing up. I want people to watch the video and 1. want to dance with us, and 2. think of all the things that make their culture exciting, too.” – Chisom
