Ed Sheeran Releases A Video For ‘Bibia Be Ye Ye’
Ed Sheeran celebrates Ghana’s rich culture in a new music video.
Ed Sheeran released a music video for “Bibia Be Ye Ye,” a song from his third studio album Divide. The music video revolves around and shows appreciation for Ghanaian culture.
The song’s title, “Bibia Be Ye Ye,” means “everything will be alright” in the Ghanaian language of Twi. He repeats this line multiple times throughout the song as the people in the video sing and dance to the lyrics. The video explores and showcases the beauty of African culture.
He shared on his Instagram account:
“Since it’s summer I wanted to put out a video for Bibia Be Ye Ye that was made by a fantastic director called Gyo Gyimah and all filmed in Ghana. I visited Ghana last year to make music with @fuseodg and @killbeatzgh, and whilst there was exposed to such wonderful culture, food, music and scenery. Me and Fuse wanted to showcase all of these things in a music video to show off the beauty of it. This isn’t a single, but it’s the summer, and why not have a summer song come out with a feel good video for people to enjoy. It’s on YouTube now, just search Ed Sheeran – Bibia Be Ye Ye. And make sure you visit Ghana, it’s incredible. Enjoy the video !x”
He appears only once in the video, at the very end. The ending makes the viewer think he is reflecting on his experiences and time in the country as he looks off into the waters in front of him.
