08 Sep African stars collaborate to ‘Tell Everybody’ about the Global goals campaign
The Global Goals initiative is one that aims to get the United Nation‘s Sustainable Goals Development Goals (SDGs) to everyone by the year 2030. The goals represent an action plan that will span the next fifteen years with the aim to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and climate change by the year 2030. The SDGs will be adopted by 193 world leaders on the 25th September and to assist with this campaign, African musical superstars have collaborated on a track titled Tell Everybody.
Produced by award winning producers Coghams Asuquo (Nigeria), David ‘King David’ Muthami (Kenya) and Ellputo (Mozambique), the track features Mafikizolo (South Africa), Becca (Ghana), Diamond (Tanzania), Sauti Sol (Kenya), Toofan (Togo), Yemi Alade (Nigeria) and Wizkid (Nigeria). The track is a call to remind everyone of their rights that are encompassed in the 17 goals and to ensure that the world leaders who sign the agreement, remain true to their word.

To keep inline with the theme of uplifting uplifting and capturing the voice of the African youth, the songwriters decided to crowd source two verses, one verse in English and another verse in French via a Every1Mobile competition. During the two weeks that the competition ran, over 3000 people entered from 25 African countries. Cobhams Asuquo said, “We decided to let the young voices of Africa be heard in this song. Not only did we love the winning verses but all the entries informed the vision, lyrics and sound of the song.”
