African musicians have become some of the most influential in their different countries, commanding the respect and time of elected officials and lending their voices to cause they are passionate about. From artists endorsing candidates to being brought in to inspire challenges that hopefully bring awareness to important issues. As such, the United Nations International Fund for Agricultural Development has partnered with Mr Eazi, J.Derobie and GuiltyBeatz for a piece titled Freedom.
With different teams from different countries led by Rwanda’s Sherrie Silver, the Olle Enqvist directed video opens in Cameroon with Mr Eazi’s verse after which Derobie takes over on a soundscape of intense atmospheric synths and pads powered by GuiltyBeatz.
As the interesting video runs its course, we’re educated with a number of different statistics that shed light on the agricultural situation in Africa and what can be done about it including a challenge to take on the #danceforchange challenge, one that’s expected to yield great changes in not just Africa, but the world.
In his journey to becoming one of Africa’s greatest, Mr Eazi is taking no prisoners. From the creation of his EmPawa Initiative and now his affiliation with United Nations, it’s clear his plans to take his sound to the world involve not only him but his country and continent.
Listen to Freedom here and join Sherrie Silver in a bid to shed light on sustainable agriculture.
