Tell Everybody Song Africa

HEAR THE SONG

THAT COULD HELP CHANGE AFRICA’S FUTURE

Bringing a message of optimism, empowerment and pride in the continent, Africa’s first ever crowdsourced song is more than just music. “Tell Everybody” is a powerful statement in support of the UN’s 17 Global Goals that will launch this month.

When some of Africa’s biggest musical artists collaborate with young unheard African voices, you know something important is happening. On 25th September, the historic signing of the UN’s Global Goals for Sustainable Development will take place in New York. Poverty, hunger, sanitation and climate action are just some of the crucial points included in the 17-goal initiative. “Tell Everybody” is Africa’s attempt to raise awareness of the importance of the goals while inspiring young people to take action and hold their leaders to account.

Tell Everybody Video Shoot

Award-winning producers Cobhams Asuquo of Nigerai, David “KING DAVID” Muthami from Kenya, and Ellputo from Mozambique, wanted to take inspiration from young African voices.

They launched a competition to find the right words for the song, “Tell Everybody”. 6000 people from 24 African countries submitted lyrics via their mobile phones and the producers chose two verses for the final song. Sauti Sol, a contributing band from Kenya said:

“It’s a song about Africa rising, with the youth at its wings. For us, it inspires optimism and energy in a generation of Africans who need to be more aware of themselves and demand a better, brighter future.”

“Tell Everybody” features contributions from members of the public, alongside stars such as Mafikizolo from South Africa, Nigera’s Yemi Alade, Diamond from Tanzania and Sauti Sol from Kenya.
