This Politician Starred In An Afro-Trap Video And Has Everyone Shook
This is Kach. He is a Nigerian musician, known for pioneering the Afrotrap genre of hip-hop.
Kach is the son of Ibe Kachikwu, the Nigerian petroleum minister, and it seems he got one of his dad's colleagues to join in on the fun.
Dino Melaye, a senator for Nigeria's Kogi West district, caused a stir when he starred in Kach's latest music video.

It's fair to say the reactions were a little mixed. This guy sees no problem with it.
There is nothing wrong with Senator Dino Melaye appearing in a music video. Let's focus on the important things.— Isima (@IsimaOdeh) December 20, 2017
But a lot of people on Naija Twitter are shook - and not in a good way! Did we mention that the song is called 'Dino', the politician's name? Here he is wearing a t-shirt that says LEGEND and posing in front of an expensive car.

Here's a video of Nigerians reacting to the video. It seems like a lot of people weren't sure that a politician flaunting a lavish lifestyle in a video - even if some say it was satirical - is a good look!
