Rocky Dawuni Carries Timely Message of Hope and Revival in Visuals of “Champion Arise”

Rocky Dawuni

Multiple Grammy-nominated Ghanaian reggae musician and activist Rocky Dawuni finally delivers visuals for self-produced single “Champion Arise”, taken from his seventh studio album, the 2019 released “Beats of Zion”.

The uplifting message of the song is reverberated just in time as the world continues to grapple with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Speaking to TheAfricanDream.net in an interview Rocky Dawuni expressed his desire is for people who listen to “Champion Arise” or watch the video to be encouraged despite the current global pandemic.

He said: “There is a lot of fear and anxiety across the world right now because of COVID-19, this is, therefore, my little contribution to add to all the positive efforts being made globally by persons from all walks of like to inject a sense of awareness and hope into humanity through the power of music.”

The music video was shot in various locations around the world, and was directed by Jon Riera and Casey Bridges with additional editing by Deborah Koffler.

The colourful visuals spots scenes from the premises of world-renowned Woodshed Studios of Malibu in California which was partially destroyed in the Malibu fire of 2018, and also the ruins of the iconic Tuff Gong Africa Studio situated in the town of Aburi in Ghana, built by Rita Marley in honor of Bob Marley, that was destroyed in a 2010 fire.

Encapsulating themes of renewal and rebirth, the video seems to aptly use images of ruins as a metaphor to represent the current state of affairs, entreating viewers to rise from the ashes like the Phoenix.
