The 2019 Prism Prize for Best Canadian Music Video was awarded to Kevan Funk, for his clip for Belle Game’s Low. We will continue to profile noteworthy Canadian videos, including this one from a Toronto-based hip-hop artist and winner of the most recent Polaris Prize.
Haviah Mighty is a rapper based in Toronto. Well known for being one of the four MCs who make up the sorority, a hip hop group born during an all-female cypher on International Women’s Day in 2016.
Sean Leon, who is featured in the song, is also a rapper based in Toronto. He is the founder of IXXI, an initiative focused on delivering unique and creative experiences in music, digital and visual art, content, and video.
Haviah stated in an interview that this song is a representation of self-confidence as she was feeling herself when she first produced it. Sean Leon is not present in the video but during his verse, the choreography was done by Haviah and someone else. They were the only two present in the video.
