YES! Wieder ein extrem starkes Video von Sampa The Great.
The Music Video for final form was inspired by the belief of having a spiritual exodus back to yourself.
We often as black people in the diaspora talk about the physical return to our roots but not so much the spiritual.
Final form is meant to start that conversation, even though physically done in Africa. The physical return only happened after the spiritual one.
It was important for me to do this video in Zambia. The place of my birth and where I’m from. Because if I’m truly going to become the greatest version of myself, I’m going to start at the most me I’ve ever been. Which is where I started from, where I grew up!
I also wanted to touch on the topics of home which will further be revealed in the album!
But also clarify that I am indeed a Zambian. Born and raised between Zambia and Botswana. By a Bemba mother and Tumbuka father and to erase that by calling me anything but Zambian/African, is to erase my history,culture and essence.
Everything I was born from.
