The new Africa Against Ebola and Xenophobia rendition of “We Are The World” features 180 musicians from seven African countries (Cameroon, Kenya, Mozambique, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania and Zimbabwe).
Well known African musicians have come together to sing for peace and tolerance in Africa.
The song debuted at the 2014 MTN Radio Awards on 18 April. Organisers of the awards have called on radio stations to broadcast the song as an act of solidarity against xenophobia in South Africa.
The organizers said, “It features 180 artists from across the African continent and is a demonstration of the beautiful music that Africans can make when we work together.”
