Any song that has Burna Boy, Damian Marley and Angelique Kidjo is sure to produce fireworks, as this fan saw in Different:

Dangote, which was released earlier, is about Africa's richest man - Aliko Dangote.

It's a song about the Nigerian spirit of hustling.

In Pidgin, Burna Boy sings:

Dangote, Dangote

Dangote still dey find money o...

Who I be?

Who I be?

Wey make I no go find money o

Which translated means:

Dangote Dangote

Dangote is still looking for money

Who am I?

Who am I?

That shouldn't look for money
