Have you seen Jah Bouks’ new video for “Going Home”? (@JahBouks)

jah bouks

Jah Bouks has done it again! The roots Rasta artist has delivered another catching visual for his song Going Home. The new video is in many ways very similar to Angola; in that, Jah Bouks displays his frustration for life in the west. What makes Going Home captivating however, is that it shows Bouks actually in an African country. By the looks of it, the country seems to be São Tomé and Príncipe, which is located in central Africa.
