Heavy (feat. Niariu, Boy Fall & Jon Grace)

Les Amazones d’Afrique

Directed by Louise Mootz.

‘Heavy’ is a song about the women who have had the courage to build their own empire, their own life, their own business and the strength to work hard to win more money than their husband or men in general. More specifically, this song is a tribute to one of the singers’ grandmothers, who he upholds as a role model for younger generations.
