It’s not easy making it but persistence always helps in making dreams come true. This is exactly what happened to director Daps, the popular creator behind hit music videos like “Bad and Boujee” and “Come Closer”.

The 31-year-old director took to Instagram to share an emotional throwback from 2013. He said that back then, he was trying to make it in the industry but nobody was keen on working with him. However, he made his own path by directing his own music video, “Ian Wright”.

That helped him get the attention of Director X, the world renowned creator of Rihanna’s “Work” music video featuring Drake.
