Behind the Scenes of Akon & Keri Hilson’s ‘Oh Africa’ Video

Grammy nominees Akon and Keri Hilson go in front of the lens to shoot the video for their charity single “Oh Africa” directed by Gil Green. The song will be available on Grammy Sunday with proceeds benefitting underprivileged African youth, including Akon’s Konfidence Foundation.

“The whole aura of it is so fun—the color, the painting, and the drums,” said Akon of the clip, which also debuts Sunday. “It brings out all the cultural parts of Africa you can ever think of and it doesn’t even seem like a video, it seems more like a work of art that just happens to be a video.”
