Oh Africa is Akon's hopeful tribute to the promise of the African continent and her people to rise above their myriad problems. The video shifts from the singer dancing joyously before an enormous, colorful mural of African imagery; to a choir-like crowd singing and grooving with faces painted in the colors of the continent's flags; to a culminating scene of footballers kicking soccer-ball-like paintballs into a wall, creating a massive image of star athletes unified for the collection of nations.
