Dremo, Vector, Dark Poet, Falz, and other Nigerian artists have released recordings condemning police violence, but the Lekki tollgate slaughter is one that needs to be preserved in sound. 

Burna Boy’s ‘20.10.20,’ a record commemorating the moment sadness of outright murder by the Nigerian government, which is still challenged today, was released.

Chike then delivered ‘Wahala Dey,’ a more calm and emotional take on the subject, before Headies-winning rapper AQ wrapped it all up with ‘Shoot The Messenger.’

AQ released his widely acclaimed album, GOLDEN, earlier in 2021. It was packed with compelling social-political messages as well as a powerful message about death. ‘Shoot The Messenger,’ on the other hand, was joyful, but in a dark manner. AQ is cheerful, tranquil, and agitated all at the same time.

This video bares its luster as well as the melancholy tone of the song’s plot.
