Music Video: How far – Medikal

Medikal’s ‘How Far’ has now got its visuals out.

The video was coordinated by Akwaada Nyame and is based on the true life story of Robert Smalls.

Robert Smalls was an enslaved African American who escaped to freedom in a Confederate supply ship and eventually became a sea captain for the Union Navy. After the war, he became a successful businessman and politician serving in both houses of the South Carolina legislature. He was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1875 but was convicted of taking a bribe while in the state senate and sentenced to prison before he was pardoned by the governor.
