Jairam Chawan’s poem, Red Coat & Lipstick, captivated a singer and her ukulele playing friend on the streets of Budapest so much that it turned into a winning music video.
The video took third place in the #minimalistic category of the 2020 London Music Video Festival (LMVF), which is a popular competition created for music video makers and enthusiasts from around the world. It provides a platform for people to showcase their music, videos and news.
The video, called Red Coat & Red Lipstick, garnered 1,153 views on YouTube and was selected by a diverse jury out of 42 other submissions.
The Bahrain-based 38-year-old quality assurance and control engineer, who goes by @global_citizen_000 on Instagram, is delighted with the achievement. He never thought his poem would win over so many hearts as it did, let alone third place in a mega music video making competition.
