When rapper Bugzy Malone made the music video for his song “Run,” the musician from the U.K. didn’t hire actors to play homeless characters, they used real people living on the streets of Manchester. In a recent interview, Bugzy Malone, who’s real name is Aaron Davis, explains that after the video was released earlier this year, his management team got a message from a woman who recognized one of the men in the video.
“We got an email from a mom of one of the guys, the guy had been missing for six, to a year,” Malone explains. “And when she saw him in my music video, it made her go out and find him.”
Malone says he’s learned that the man in the video is now back at home with his family as a result of his video. He says that reuniting that family is one of the proudest moments of his career.
