Burna Boy in his song Whiskey, off his latest album Love, Damini, spoke on some of the plights facing Niger Delta residents due to environmental pollution from oil exploration.
The Grammy award-winning singer, intent on driving his message home further has released a mini-documentary titled The Black River: Whiskey Documentary.
The documentary focuses on the residents of the Niger Delta region plagued with black-soothe air pollution caused by uncontrolled gas flaring, and flood-ravaged communities left desolated and impoverished by the government.
Burna Boy grew up in the oil-rich Niger Delta region of Nigeria and is regarded as one of Port Harcourt City’s very finest, having spent most of his early youth and adult days in the Rivers state capital.
He has shown solidarity with the Niger Delta people in the past, often calling out the ineptitude of the government in his songs, especially on his Grammy-nominated album African Giant.
