Youth Nigerian Filmmakers Put Their Spin On Drake & Lil Durk's 'Laugh Now, Cry Later' Video

You don’t need a huge budget to recreate a Drake video if you have a little time and a lot of imagination!

The Ikorodu Bois are young filmmakers in Nigeria who have gained a social media following for recreating music videos with every day items, and their version of Drizzy and Lil Durk‘s “Laugh Now, Cry Later” is on point! Substituting the Vision Mercedes-Maybach Cabriolet for wagons with strings of lights and a football for a potato, 15-year-old Muiz and 10-year-old Malik made the video work with what they had. The “dreads” used to be Durk was a mop, which makes this even greater.

Camera company RED was so moved by the Ikorodu Bois’ creations they’ve donated a ton of equipment, so their journey is just getting underway.

“Laugh Now, Cry Later” has been blowing up since its release on August 14, but it proved no match to dethrone Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s “WAP” from the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200. The Cardo, G-Ry, Yung Exclusive and Chahayed-produced record instead debuted at No. 2.
