Many modern music videos are criticised for the constant objectification of women. But FOKN Bois member Wanlov, with his latest video, appears to introduce a whole new dimension to conversations surrounding the phenomenon.

My Toto, directed by spoken word act Mutombo Da Poet, shows the controversial rapper (born Emmanuel Owusu Bonsu) in many saucy poses usually portrayed by women. The video, because of how quickly popular it is becoming since its release on March 25, challenges longstanding theories regarding objectification as the one sure way of achieving success with music videos.

Wanlov has always been about questioning convention with his art. His lyrics (sarcastic and blunt) touch on subjects usually regarded as taboo in the African setting: sex, religion, race, politics among other such themes.

Born in Romania in 1980, Wanlov is author of three solo albums and eight joint records with FOKN Bois partner M3nsa.
