Y’En A Marre’s political hip-hop anthems

8 of 13 Senegalese opposition candidates trying to unseat Abdoulaye Wade in the upcoming presidential elections (including three former prime ministers under Wade, and no-longer-candidate Youssou N'Dour) gathered on Obelisk Square in Dakar last Sunday. The rally went peaceful, "crowds of color-coordinated supporters awaited while listening to political hip-hop anthems in Wolof."
