Nick Knight and artist Tino Kamal continue their collaborative working relationship with Kamal’s honest music video 'Runaway'.
'My friend Tino was stabbed in broad daylight on a sunny afternoon in Chelsea, West London. No one rushed to help him, apprehend the attacker, or call the police. Tino realised that if he didn’t do anything he would bleed out and die there on the street. Luckily, he managed to get himself to the hospital on public transport. Tino wrote this track 'Runaway' in the aftermath, as an honest reaction, with the message that you only have one life and it’s precious. I created this video with Tino in the hope that at least one viewer would be impacted and strong enough to turn the other cheek and shun violence - one less family to suffer the real and tragic heartbreak of such an awful and pointless loss.' - Nick Knight.
There is a fatal knife attack every three days in London. There have been over 40,000 knife crimes in the UK in 2018 - a 16% rise from the previous year. With children as young as 13 years-old falling victim, systemic change is essential.
