On this visuals, the singer explore the traditions and communities of her roots, bridging the gap between the traditional worlds of Nyau dancers and modern Zambian youth culture,
According to the singer, “We often as black people in the diaspora talk about the physical return to our roots but not so often about the spiritual. ‘Final form’ is meant to start that conversation. It was important for me to do this video in Zambia, the place of my birth and where I’m from, because if I am truly to become the greatest version of myself, I am going to start at the most me I’ve ever been, which is where I started from, where I grew up. I was born and raised between Zambia and Botswana, by a Bemba mother and Tumbuka father and to erase that by calling me anything but Zambian / African, is to erase my history, culture and essence. Everything I was born from.”
Finally, the video was shot at location in Zambia and directed by Sanjay De Silva.
