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”
