We brought to you earlier the audio of this collaboration which is sponsored by the United Nations. We bring to you the official video as well.
Today, an all-African ‘first’ will explode onto the music scene and into the charts. The hit song and video, titled – ‘Tell Everybody‘, features some of the continent’s biggest stars, including Mafikizolo (South Africa), Yemi Alade (Nigeria), Diamond (Tanzania), Sauti Sol (Kenya), Toofan (Togo), Becca and Sarkodie (Ghana). Written, recorded, produced and released by Africans for Africans, the song attempts to ignite the political passions of young people to hold their leaders to account in meeting the Global Goals: to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and fix climate change by 2030.
Tell Everybody is Africa’s contribution to the ambitious global initiative to get the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to everyone on the planet within 7 days of being adopted by all the world’s leaders on 25 September. It features verses in English, French, Swahili, Pidgin and Zulu.
The song will be released by Universal Music for download on iTunes and Apple Music. Both Universal Music and iTunes, alongside the artists and producers have waived their royalties and all proceeds will be donated to charity. The music video can be viewed on the Tell Everybody YouTube site where viewers are also invited to join the movement to ensure their leaders deliver the Global Goals in the years to come.
