This music video is directed by Malik Sayeed and has K'naan and the frontman of Maroon 5 sharing screen.
K'naan's music video in support of his latest single "Bang Bang" has been revealed. It features the Somali-Canadian rapper rapping his verses next to his collaborator Maroon 5's Adam Levine who tackles the singing part. Some fine ladies, in either skimpy clothes or topless, are flashed.
Unlike "Bang Bang", K'naan wants something different for "Fatima" music video. In support of the song which is recorded as a tribute to his childhood friend who was killed in a war, the musician who claims worldwide fame through 2010 World Cup anthem "Wavin' Flag", wants Bollywood theme.
"Fatima and my story is like an epic Bollywood story. I grew up with her, and we shared young love. It was a time of war, so my family and I had to leave Somalia for New York. I had told her I would return, but three days later, she was killed in the war," he said. "The song will connect better if the visuals are typically Bollywood, with some flashback images from my childhood."
Both "Bang Bang" and "Fatima" are taken from K'naan's third studio album "Troubadour"
