Zion I is calling on his fans for help. Monday, July 10th, Zion I was shooting a music video for a new song. Four hours into the shoot, he was robbed at gunpoint and the camera was stolen. Thankfully no one was hurt.
Zion I’s last album was inspired by his own personal losses as well as the current political and social climate of the world-at-large. His reason for filming in the heart of West Oakland and the storyline of the video, written by director David Telles, make it all the more ironic that he ended up being victimized.
There is a deductible to pay to get the camera covered by insurance, but the money spent on the video has to be raised to re-film. As an independent artist, Zion I is funding this alone. There is no record label financing this, which is why he is reaching out to you.
Please help him raise the money to get the camera back and the ability to reshoot the video and see your name as an funder in the credits!
