The Kampala chapter of European NGO Viva Con Agua gathered artists from Germany, Switzerland, Kenya and Uganda to celebrate World Water Day (March 22, 2016) in Moroto, Karamoja.
In the same week, the singers went to Firebase Studio in Kamwokya, Kampala, to produce a song promoting safe water and sanitation, and they also filmed a music video, both of which are being released today, Friday May 13th, in all four of the artists’ countries and beyond.
Sema was recorded by Firebase’s Dan Magic on a danceable urban/world-music style track created by German producer The Ghanaian Stallion. It features five back-to-back verses by artists who are all stars in their own countries: Octopizzo (Kenya), Maro (Uganda), Bobi Wine (Uganda), Knackeboul (Switzerland) and Megaloh (Germany).
Sema carries a messages of social advocacy, African pride and the importance of access to clean water and sanitation. It includes 5+ languages, a global mix of musical styles, and is intended to reach an international audience of Viva con Agua supporters and beneficiaries.
