This is a guest post by musician and ONE member, D’Banj.
Farmers are very important. And just like foundations, you hardly notice them – but if we have a strong foundation, not only can we feed Africa, but Africa can feed the world.
That’s why I’ve come together with some of Africa’s top recording artists, including Femi Kuti, Omawumi, Fally Ipupa, Juliani, Dama Do Bling and Vusi Nova, to tell African youth that their future is literally beneath their feet.
Today we are releasing our new song ‘Cocoa ‘na Chocolate’ and it’s yours for FREE. All you need to do is sign ONE’s petition.
The petition reads:
Dear African leaders,
We can grow millions of jobs, feed Africa and create a better future if you keep your promises to invest in agriculture and support smallholder farmers, especially women.
We are using our voices to tell our leaders that the time has come to Do Agric and help lift millions out of extreme poverty. We now need you to join us.
The song features A.Y., Bufallo Souljah, Dama Do Bling, Diamond, Dontom, Fally Ipupa, Femi Kuti, Judith Sephuma, Juliani, Kunle Ayo, Vusi Nova, Liz Ogumbo, Nancy G, Omawumi, Rachid Taha, Tiken Jah Fakoly, Wax Dey and Victoria Kimani.
It’s time to use our voices to create and drive the change we want to see. It’s time to tell our leaders to Do Agric. It Pays.
