Women empowerment has become an everyday topic in the 21st century. Books on feminism have been released such as ‘We Are All Feminist’ by Chimamanda Adichie and the many NGOS have taken it up as an important issue to deal with. Now nine strong African ladies have come together through ONE to encourage women to join forces and uplift the community out of poverty through an anthem : Strong Girl.
The song, Strong Girl, features Waje (Nigeria), Victoria Kimani (Kenya), Vanessa Mdee (Tanzania), Arielle T (Gabon), Gabriela (Mozambique), Yemi Alade (Nigeria), Selmor Mtukudzi (Zimbabwe), Judith Sephuma (South Africa), new talent Blessing Nwafor (South Africa).
I know the artists I’ve mentioned just made you want to stop reading this and scroll to the bottom for the video immediately. Well, it’s not a wowing video with a story line but the song is quite something. It’s a great union of powerful vocals and it passes the message in the best musical ways. All high keys are well maneuvered and the rap part was actually pretty smooth.
Do you like the video? Do you agree that poverty is sexist? Comment below.
