The Africa we dream of/Only 8 goals away.

This from the “8 Goals for Africa” song, which is part of an awareness and advocacy campaign developed by the United Nations System in South Africa on the eight Millenium Development Goals. As you can see, the song features a veritable who’s who of stars from across the continent: Yvonne Chaka Chaka, Angelique Kidjo, Oliver Mutukudzi, Mingas, Eric Wainaina, HHP, Baba Maal, the Soweto Gospel Choir, Hugh Masekela and Jimmy Dludlu. That’s eight if you’re counting. You know, one for each goal. Clever, isn’t it? Read more on the project here.
