The release of Faygo's new music video featuring Tomawok, directed by Soniou Production and produced by Fawaka Production, marks an important moment for the reggae group with "Criminal", the first song of his triptych "Blooming". With this track, Faygo and Tomawok have decided to tackle the issue of cannabis prohibition in an original and offbeat way.
Using a burlesque tone, the video pays homage to the cannabis culture while mocking the prohibition that surrounds it. The main characters enthusiastically grow tomatoes, but the insects invading their garden are actually police officers coming to harass them. The metaphor is clear: cannabis growers are peaceful citizens who are being chased for no reason by the authorities.
The message delivered by Faygo and Tomawok is a call for reflection on the prohibition policy which has shown its limits and negative consequences for society. It is time to rethink our approach to drugs, and to prioritize a policy of regulation and risk reduction. The "Criminal" video is therefore both entertaining and committed, and marks an important moment for Faygo's "Blooming" triptych.
