Sydney-based hip-hop artist Kwame has released a music video for his song ‘Nobody’ featuring E^ST, and announced dates for the Please, Get Home Safe Tour.
‘Nobody’, which was released last month, is a track from Kwame’s forthcoming third EP. Shot in Marrickville and co-directed by Kwame and Zain Ayub, the video centers on a Ghanaian youth who’s bullied, and the people who try to protect him. “His newfound friends mentor and nurture the courage within him so that he may move beyond despondency and feel free,” Kwame said in a statement.
“The choice to shoot majority of the film in Marrickville reflects its raw texture, sense of realness and celebrates the multicultural background the suburb holds – which is synonymous with the film’s ideologies,” Kwame added. “The themes explored represent the diffusion of cultural and societal gaps thereby creating a more universal and globalist experience. The messages within the film are that race, age and status shouldn’t matter when one’s back is against the wall.”
