In the video, Drizilik makes his entrance as the third performer, delivering powerful verses that beautifully captures the Sierra Leonean culture and his deep pride for his roots.
Lines like “Diamond in the flesh, Salone in your face” and “Dis na Krio, no to pidgin nor mistake am” serve as unmistakable representations of Sierra Leone, with a passionate desire for the world to recognize us through our native “Krio” language.
