The video was shot in New York where the artiste is based and centers around typical encounters youths in inner cities may be plagued with but also shows the importance of being positive. On winning the prestigious award, which Alicia Keys and numerous other internationally acclaimed artistes have won, Concrossiss says he’s humbled and looks forward to also the Promotion Package valued at $100000 USD to which he has also received as a part of the win for Publicity campaigns.
