Childish Gambino’s raw & very political music video sets internet on fire
Childish Gambino (Donald Glover) recently released a new song and music video entitled, 'This is America'.
CAPE TOWN - Actor and singer Childish Gambino, whose real name is Donald Glover, recently released a new song and music video entitled This is America.
The video soon went on to trend on YouTube and is currently sitting as the #2 trending video on the platform.
Reactions are still pouring in and it would seem that he's struck a nerve with US audiences. The song addresses Gambino's views on gun violence in the country.
The more you watch the #ThisIsAmerica video, the more you realize that there's so much going on in the background and that Donald is just a distraction - and that's the whole point. #StayWoke (don't catch you slippin' now)— Siyabonga Mahlaba 🎨 (@sabu_mahlaba) May 6, 2018

I can't remember the last time I watched a music video all the way to the end, let alone one five times in a row. Incredible work! #ThisIsAmerica— Trent Reznor (@trent_reznor) May 6, 2018
South African urban culture also gets a small nod when Childish Gambino and his dancers do the Gwara Gwara, a dance created and made popular by Durban-based DJ Bongz.
