Chicken No Dey Fly
music video for Onipa
2021

CHICKEN NO DEY FLY represents a daily narrative of the hustle and bustle within the hot streets of Agbogbloshie Market, Ghana. A term coined from the compound house of Kweku’s Grandmother to illustrate the extent to which people have been patient and resilient, in spite of all the political and social turmoil. A call for UNITY and FAITH in the hope that the future will shine bright and bring enough relief.
