Melanin: Controversial Clarence-Shot Music Video Banned In Kenya

Good day folks, so earlier this month Sauti Sol, a Kenyan group released a highly controversial music video for their hit track, Melanin, which features Nigerian reggae/dancehall rave, Patoranking.

While the message of the song is preaching self love and praises the melanated African beauty, the video was met with hostility from some political juggernauts in Kenya who found it crude and a glorification of nudity.

The music video generated much controversy, such that it was eventually banned by the government, but the controversy has earned the video and the song much popularity on the internet.

The video on YouTube has garnered 3.7 million views in less than a month and it doesn't hurt that the song is wavy. It was shot by the Capital Dreams team led by Clarence Peters and I personally find it brilliant, but what do you think? Did the video deserve a ban?

Watch Video below!
