I’ve tried and tried to figure out what ‘Kaba Kaba’ means, and I’ll admit that I have absolutely not a clue. I got news of the video release recently, and now that I’ve watched it, I’m even more clueless than I was before about the origin of the word. ‘Kaba Kaba’, which features Remi Aluko and the late Dagrin, is the hit single of Afro-naija act Konga, known for singing in the particular variation of Yoruba language, ‘Eno’.
The video, directed by Akin Alabi, features cameo appearances by Morachi, Baba Suwe and producer Laylow. Shot at the sawmills of Ebutte Metta, the video quality is high, but does little but tell us that touts and little children have an affinity for the song. Well this is a Konga song, so, er, what else is new?
