A FORMER student of South Craven School at Cross Hills is starring in a hip hop video promoting an anti-bullying message.

Islam Hussain, aka Issy, says the idea for the video originated when he was a sixth-former at the school.

He features in the production – We Don’t Play – with up-and-coming Bradford rapper NVN Slime.

Issy, who is also an award-winning poet, said: “The Covid-19 lockdown has given me an opportunity to write up to 30 songs and now I’m working with beat makers from London and New York to develop them.

“I want to use my rap songs to raise awareness of issues such as anti-bullying, depression, poverty and domestic violence.

“My parents have been a great inspiration in helping me with my music and arts and in my further education.”

Issy’s father, Saby Khan, directed the video – which was made in Keighley. And the cameraman and editor was James King, of Da Hills Productions in Bradford.
