Acclaimed spoken word artist creates video to inspire students on their next episode
Aspiring and current students at BMet are being encouraged to stay positive and focused on their future goals by a celebrated local spoken word artist.
Raza Hussain, known as Wuzzamill, used his internationally-recognised artistic talents to produce the inspiring video – which relates his passion for Birmingham with his desire to see young people succeed in life.
Filmed during lockdown and released to coincide with the start of BMet’s summer enrolment period, the video is set to inspire a new wave of FE learners. See the video below – be ready to be inspired!
Along with eye-catching scenes of calligrapher, Ismail Hussayn, sketching the BMet logo on a canvas, the vibrant masterpiece features key landmarks that encapsulate Birmingham – including the Bullring, Grand Central Station and The Old Rep Theatre.
Director and editor, Oliver Griffin, made up the final part of the trio of creative video co-ordinators – which is a partnership grounded in firm friendship.
Speaking of his illuminating video, Raza said: “The idea behind it was to show how much Birmingham has to offer. There are shots of different cultures, different heritage sites and different lives in the city.
“All these things are what makes Birmingham great. A great city to get to know, to learn in, learn from, to grow, to explore and to discover.”
Starting with the line “dripping from the promise of your hard work and labour,” the motivating literary piece highlights that students are a huge part of Birmingham and should seize opportunities, so that they can accomplish great things.
The video has been specially created to motivate anyone who is set to enrol with the college this summer.
Cliff Hall, Principal at BMet College, said: “Finding innovative ways to spread our inclusive and positive messages to current and upcoming students, is very important to us and is something we continually strive to do.
“We have been actively supporting our students throughout the lockdown, so feel very much ready to welcome new and returning students in September.
“We will do all we can to encourage students in any way we can to reach their future careers or goals.
“Being able to collaborate with Raza, who is such an inspiring and celebrated local artist, was a fantastic opportunity and we are sure his words will inspire our students.”
