Video of the Moment #2365: Ghostpoet

By on Friday, 19th May 2017 at 6:00 pm
 

Last month, Ghostpoet returned with a politically charged single, ‘Immigrant Boogie’. Written from the perspective a desperate refugee father, it provided a way for the listener to begin to contemplate life as someone who has fleed their homeland in search of security and a better life for him and his family, and therefore help us to empathise. You can read my thoughts on the single here. The song now has its own promo video, putting the story Obaro Ejimiwe has written with equally powerful visuals, showing the poignant futility of running away from problems in one place to those in another. The single is out now on PIAS; his next album is expected soon. To read all of TGTF’s past coverage on Ghostpoet, use this link.
