Before the band returned home in September, Hasse produced a videoclip of the song. I February 1993, two months after the cassette was released in Dakar, the video suddenly appeared on Senegalese TV. Radioplay had already made Bamba very popular, and the video did the rest, making Bamba the best known song of Hasse Walli & Asamaan.
