As new Global Goals are announced that could end extreme poverty within a generation, the cream of Africa’s musical stars are proud to announce the release of a brand new remix of 'Strong Girl'. This contagious anthem for women’s empowerment first got the world dancing in May this year.
The mix of 14 male and female stars, in partnership with ONE, recorded the new version to show that women’s empowerment is a song that everyone – men, boys, girls and women – must sing. Together we can amplify the powerful message that poverty is sexist.
'Strong Girl' features vocalists Waje (Nigeria), D'Banj (Nigeria) Victoria Kimani (Kenya), Vanessa Mdee (Tanzania), Banky W (Nigeria), Arielle T (Gabon), Diamond (Tanzania) Gabriela (Mozambique), Yemi Alade (Nigeria), Selmor Mtukudzi (Zimbabwe), Judith Sephuma (South Africa), new talent Blessing Nwafor (South Africa), and U2's Bono. The video stars Omotola Jalade Ekeinde (Nigeria).
