‘Half of a Yellow Sun’ is an adaptation of the best selling novel written by Chimamanda Adichie and is directed Biyi Bandele. The movie tells the story of two sisters, Olanna and Kainene during the Biafran war and the effects of the conflicts on their lives and the lives of everyone around them.

The much-anticipated movie is scheduled for release worldwide in March 2014.
“Bother You” is a love song inspired by the love story in the movie. The music video was shot in South Africa and produced by God Father Productions and DKM Media. The music video collates footage taken from the movie Half of a Yellow Sun.
The very talented award-winning singer/entertainer is set to release the video on Monday the 20th of January 2014, 6pm GMT.
