Agriculture is uniting African singers in Nigeria This April!
Nigerian pop star D'banj has invited 19 top African stars to join him in Lagos Nigeria for the launch of the official theme song of the One Campaign project title Cocoa Na Chocolate. Among those already in town include: Dama do Bling (Mozambique), Vusi Nova (South Africa), Wax Dey (Cameroon), Diamond (Tanzania), and Nigerian stars – D'banj, Omawumi and Don Tom.
The Year Of Agriculture was launched in collaboration with the U2's Bono's One Campaign Organization in Lagos late January 2014 – a project which seeks to encourage and support Agriculture among young people in Africa. Now, it says, "Do Agric, It Pays"
Media head, Nde 'Wax' Ndifonka had earlier stated that the song will be "Africa's biggest music collaboration of all time". He also disclosed that the song is geared towards the celebration of 'The Year of Agriculture' as a means of alleviating poverty in the continent.
