The official music video for Team by James Okulaja has been released.
James Okulaja AKA Oktave has released his latest track ‘Team’ with the help of local sponsors The Kings Ferry, McDonald’s Chatham and the Medway Rugby Club.
The anti-bullying ambassador for the charity The Diana Award, uses his incredible talent to raise awareness around social issues. James is one of 25,000 ambassadors in the UK and Ireland who help create campaigns to tackle cyber-bullying and hate crime. He has worked with the likes of Google, Snapchat and Facebook, as well as HRH Prince William.
The Message Behind The Song
Team carries with it a strong message to the hate crime James has endured. He explains, “TEAM is about lifting up the people around me, exaggerating the excellence of the people I surround myself with and amplifying the fact that we don’t care about the hate we get or approval from society. We will still be successful regardless of people’s negative opinions.”
Before the premiere, James came to our head office in Gillingham to give an exclusive preview of the finished music video. The reaction to it was brilliant, both the Executive and Marketing team loved it and we cannot wait to see what reaction it gets in public. The video has already attracted almost 4,000 views on YouTube in just 3 days!
