TikTok video collaboration
Jean Abreu creates choreography for the launch of Fun, the latest single by singer-song writer Samson Ashe
Jean worked with Singer Samson Ashe on this playful TikTok video to celebrate the release of the single, Fun, a nostalgic ode to childhood when everything was just simple and FUN!
Samson Ashe – a singer-songwriter born and raised in London who won hearts with his track ‘Too Rough’ back in 2017. His most recent track ‘Fun’ is a fasttrack journey back to the happy go lucky nostalgia of being a kid in the 90s.
Fun is a nostalgic ode to childhood when things were more simple and there was no price to who you were because nobody cared…I really miss that. Unapologetically I am who I am and I miss and need that fearless kid that grew up in Stamford Hill…his honestly and unfiltered voice.. I hope the vibe’s captured, please enjoy.
For this project Jean Abreu worked with dance artists Jemima Brown and Rhys Dennis to create the final video.
