The first-ever Peace Day Anthem will premiere at the Peace One Day Youth Celebration in Kigali, Rwanda on 21 September 2015 in front of thousands of young people and beamed live into Rwanda and the world on the Rwanda Broadcasting Agency (RBA) network.
The anthem will be performed by top artists of the African music industry Ice Prince (Nigeria), Dama Do Bling (Mozambique), Maurice Kirya (Uganda), Alikiba (Tanzania) and Wangechi (Kenya), who will be joined by leading dance groups Krest Crew and Jabba Junior, and artists Innoss’B, Urban Boyz, and Knowless on the day.
The Peace Day Anthem will be available on iTunes from 21 September 2015; all proceeds will go to the non-profit organisation Peace One Day to support its mission to reach three billion people with the message of Peace Day by 2016, with the hashtag #PeaceDay central to the social campaign encouraging widespread action on the day, being a key tool towards achieving that goal.
The Peace One Day Youth Celebration 2015, which is part of Peace One Day’s wider campaign in the region made possible by the Howard G. Buffett Foundation, is being organised in partnership with the Rwandan National Unity and Reconciliation Commission (NURC); and supported by the Rwandan Ministry of Youth and ICT and the Ministry of Sports and Culture.
