Channel O, Young Gifted and Black

Posted by

Channel O, the African music channel which is broadcast by the DSTV network, commissioned a music video that showcases artists from all over Africa. The theme is young, gifted and black – a nod to the timeless Nina Simone cut. Shot by director Leigh Ogilvie (Freize Films), edited by Saki Bergh (Left), our very own Ross Drakes added some amazing design and animation to a piece of work that we are very proud to have been a part of.

    young, gifted and black, what more can a person say. It is everything that a person can be proud of, expressing the diversity, talent and thriving of all black people. This is a sure way of marketing black talent that has been here for a long time and right now it has been exposed for thee better. Well done chanel o for taking this initiative……
