If you want a demonstration of the transformative power of BMX, look no further. BMX has steered many people in a better direction, whether they were suburban and privileged, or sub-urban and decidedly not privileged. Like Starboy, KK Money and S-King in Lagos, Nigeria. Instead of “…going to clubs, getting drunk, causing trouble and doing all sorts of shit…”, they’re riding BMX and building community.
There’s isn’t a ton of riding in this video but it is a thoughtful, moving documentary worth watching. And the riding there is, is killer. It’s Nigeria after all. “Our sessions have to be hot.”
