Music: 'Tell Everybody' African Musical Collaboration for The UN Global Citizen Campaign

The annual Global Citizen Festival took place a few weeks ago in New York City. Attended by over 60,000 people, the festival celebrated music and activism in promotion of the UN's Global Goals campaign. As it was hosted by Hugh Jackman and Stephen Colbert, it had many celebrity appearances and included performances by major international music acts such as Beyonce, Cold Play, and Ed Sheran. 

In addition, top African musicians were included in this global festival and also performed their collaborative song 'Tell Everybody' for the UN Global Goals campaign. This collaboration features South African artists Mafikizolo, Kenyan artists Sauti Sol, Tanzanian artist Diamond, Nigerian artist Yemi Alade, Togolese artist Toofan and Ghanaian artists Sarkodie & Becca.

Its great to see African musicians continue to grow visibility on the world stage and also activity participate in global activism.
