Beyonce's "Love Drought" video was in memory of "Igbo Landing" story. An act of mass resistance against slavery.
A group of Igbo slaves revolted, took control of their ship, rather than submit to slavery, they drowned themselves , which is referred as "Ibo Landing"
When they were drowning, they were singing in Igbo, a song that translates to:
"the water spirit brought us. The water spirit will take us home". (Mmụọ mmiri du anyị bia, mmụọ mmiri ga-edu anyi laa)
