The official video for the song opens with a mumified Ruger creeping out of the ground with backup dancers as he begins to tell the story of his hustle. D’Prince takes over singing on a raised platform surrounded by dancing masquerades and then, Rema sings his part in the centre of women clad in red. The entire video seems ritualistic. Its set in the dark adds to it’s mystery and allure. The video was directed by Director K.
