New Video: One – Cocoa Na Chocolate

19 recording artists. 11 countries. 10 languages. ONE message..  African Leaders: Do Agric, It Pays!

 

One.org is a project created to raise awareness and lead people to sign a petition in order to get African Leaders to invest and boost more money into African Agriculture. African farmers are responsible for feeding the continent however they are living in extreme poverty and can often lack the resources they need in order to thrive. Investing in agriculture pays and could see up to 85 million people out of poverty, provide more jobs and also boost the economy by 2024. 70% of African workers already earn a living from agriculture. Better irrigation, farming equipment, storage, market access, and women’s land rights could mean brighter futures for millions.

In 2003, African leaders pledged to invest more in agriculture – eight of them did, but 46 have not kept their promises. 2014 is the African Union Year of Agriculture, so let’s come together and tell them to act.

 

Let’s all come together to support our beloved Motherland!

The video was shot in South Africa and the participating artists on the track are: A.Y. (Tanzania), Bufallo Souljah (Zimbabwe), Dama Do Bling (Mozambique), D’Banj (Nigeria), Diamond (Tanzania), Dontom (Nigeria), Fally Ipupa (DRC), Femi Kuti (Nigeria), Judith Sephuma (South Africa), Juliani (Kenya), Kunle Ayo (Nigeria), Vusi Nova (South Africa), Liz Ogumbo (Kenya), Nancy G (Swaziland), Omawumi (Nigeria), Rachid Taha (Algeria), Tiken Jah Fakoly (Cote d’Ivoire), Victoria Kimani (Kenya) and Wax Dey (Cameroon).

 

“I’m going to assume the Ghana representative missed their flight on the day of recording… Just kidding”

My Top 10 Tracks of 2013

Top 10 2013As we begin to say goodbye to 2013 and hello to 2014 I decided to compile a list of My personal  Top Ten Tracks of 2013…

Now.. Before I begin I would like to start by saying I have not been to the clubs as much as I should have to really know what killed the club scene and sent everyone scrambling for the dance floor. However, the few times I have been out, I have heard every song within my Top 10 gain some fantastic feedback.. (Or they have a high count on my ITunes)  So without further ado in no particular order (I can’t list in order of the best because I love them all 😦 )  Here is my list….   

1. Sean Tizzle – Sho Lee

2. Mafikizolo ft Uhuru – Khona

3. Guru – Akayida

4. Maleek Berry ft WizKid – The Matter

5.  Bisa Kdei – Azono Ghost (The only track that did not have an official music video)

6.  Rayce – Jack Sparrow

7. R2Bees ft WizKid  – Slow Down

8. WizKid ft Femi Kuti – Jaiye Jaiye

9. Shatta Wale – Dancehall King

10.  Black Magic – Repete

Honorary Mentions

1. D’Banj ft Fally Ipupa – Nous Les Meilleurs (We the best)I waited for a really good video for this but it never came 😦

2. Itz Tiffany – Neke Neke  – I loved this track but for some reason it just never kicked off.. Damn shame 

3.  Starboy ft L.A.X & Wizkid – Caro – There was no space in my top ten but this song is sill the bees knees!

4. R2Bees – OdoThis song brought back Hi-life music and got all the aunties back on to the dance floor.

5. Ajebutter22 ft Boj – Omo Pastor – Another criminally underrated track.

Do you agree with my top 10? Comment and let me know what your top ten tracks of 2013 would be!
