Bobi Wine Brings Together African Icons in new COVID-19 Song
Days after releasing a coronavirus alert song that instantly rocked the airwaves across the globe, Ugandan musician and presidential aspirant Robert Kyagulanyi popularly known as Bobi Wine was back in the studio for yet another hit, Alone but Altogether.
The song, part of the coronavirus collaborative effort by The Brenthurst Foundation, expresses a message of solidarity and self-reliance in encouraging Africans to not be victims, to think of each other and stay at home to combat the COVID-19 crisis.
Written and produced by the team of Robin and Greg Mills for The Brenthurst Foundation, the song’s video features Amuta Stone of Nigeria and other leading musicians and political figures, including more than a dozen past and present African Presidents and heads of government and two Nobel prize laureates, in a powerful (home-based) pan-African collaboration.
“Fellow Ugandans and all people of the world, behold our new song starring South African artistes Robin Auld, Schalk Joubert, Lumanyano Unity Mzi, Greg Mills, Nigeria’s Amuta Stone and myself. Very humbled to do this song alongside very eminent leaders on the African continent. We hope the song encourages all of us and gives us hope as we confront the Coronavirus pandemic with courage and fortitude,” Bobi Wine said as he announced the release of the song on his social media platforms.
Established in October 2004, The Brenthurst Foundation is at the frontier of new ideas and innovative actions for strengthening Africa’s economic performance.
