After playing all the big festivals around the world including Coachella, being photographed and art directed by Alasdair McLellan and Jefferson Hack, getting Bono on stage and working with a lot of my fashion heroes (can't tell you nothing yet, but if you read this blog you know I'm serious), my dear friend Baloji got ANOTHER MAGAZINE Director of Photography CHRISTINA HARDY and artist JESSE HLEBO to collaborate on a lyrical video for the cover of Fela Kuti's "Buy Africa"off of the upcoming RED HOT + FELA album.
