Yeboyah
Yeboyah

Helsinki rapper Yeboyah releases a visual EP that breaks the stereotype of the Finnish character Elovena.

The EP tells the story of moving from strong role models through self-reflection to breaking the standards of what Finnishness means today.

There is a strong message behind the gentle video.

And representing that so beautifully on a visual platform is just wonderful.

But also, the music and melodies and text carry a strong message.

I am nominating this because of the impact it may have on our young kids, to develop our identity and copy from role models that do not represent them in all aspects.
