Raekwon De Cordova Graham’s film focuses on a man he sees as an inspirational role model.

Tokosi, a self-confessed “master of many” has turned disadvantages in life to advantages and forged his own company when he encountered a glass ceiling within existing firms.

“Success and failures define you as you go along,” says Tokosi in the film.

“You have to have perseverance and endurance, there have been glass ceilings. I live my life my three simple mottos: leave no room for misunderstanding, let your truth be evident, assume the relationship is for a lifetime.”

Raekwon made the film about the family friend and role model as part of the Stories From Our City pilot project, run by boomsatsuma in collaboration with Bristol24/7.

It was first showcased at an event held in the auditorium of the Royal Photographic Society HQ in Paintworks in February 2020.
