TRANSCEND is the first official single off the forth-coming African Reality album by AJO slated to drop later this year. AJO simply picked up the heat since last year after his No Apologies EP. TRANSCEND comes at a time when the African narrative is not clear or pretty much altered.
In the visual; AJO stars with a vixen (yet to be known) who dons an all African attire while AJO transitions in different costumes. There is a shot of AJO at one moment wearing a mask to re-echo the dark side of our country and the corrupted mind-set of some African leaders at large.
In the spirit of Mandela
Portraits of Kwame Nkrumah and Nelson Mandela as key inspirations to the Pan-African-ism on this song and the entire coming album are overly shown.
Clumsy Media made a great impression on this one courtesy of Chris Kobel and the whole team. There is hope! The stakes are fifty-fifty. More could have been done however the important motifs are well packaged.
Later on we have a think-piece on key symbols to lookout for from Transcend but for now watch the video below:
