In an effort to raise the awareness against the current anti-Asian sentiment caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic, this video attempts to showcase South African Asians as they share their Asian and South African heritage, as well as how they contribute towards society.
The video is fun and inspiring and attempts to convey a message of Asian & South African pride, unity and inclusion. It is NOT intended to make any political statements, and/or push any individual’s or corporate's agenda.
The video was inspired by the original #UnaplogeticallyAsian video made by a number of American actors and stuntmen. Link to that video can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/itsCeliaAu/v...
The video features the song, “This is me”, a song from the movie, “The Greatest Showman”.
