The animated video for ‘Superheroes’ by rapper Stormzy was directed by British filmmaker Taz Tron Delix and is dedicated to the memory of the late Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman.

The ‘Superheroes’ video also highlights the work of the Black Lives Matter movement. According to NME, Director Taz told Little Black Book in a new interview about the making clip for the single by the UK rapper that it was inspired by the London protests in June.

Taz said: “We can’t ignore what happened. It’s what the whole song is about. And it’s what Stormzy’s about. He was there on the day, out there protesting.”

A short pre-recorded speech accompanied the clip of the ‘Superheroes’ animated video that was broadcast in the schools, with rapper Stormzy saying: “I wanted to show it to you guys first [because] being students at school, I think it’s important that you guys understand how powerful you are.”

“Despite the colour of your skin, despite where you come from, despite your religion, despite whatever it is that you feel may be holding you back: you are a superhero.” – Stormzy said.

“So, I wanted to make this video to inspire you guys, to let you know that the sky is the limit. To let you know that all those things inside of you, make you incredible.” – The rapper added.

The full animated video can be found on Stormzy’s official YouTube account.
