GHANA/ Pzeefire Joins #EndSarsProtest, Dedicates “Suffer Suffer” To Nigerians
Afro Fusion artist David Ayuba a Nigerian musician based in Ghana known in showbiz as Pzeefire has added his voice to the #EndSARS #EndSWAT protest going on in Nigeria by dedicating his song “Suffer Suffer” to affected victims and all departed souls who lost their lives prior to brutalities.
As a musician I believe music can be a useful tool in resolving conflicts and misunderstandings and artists like Fela Kuti, Bob Marley, Lucky Dube, Femi Kuti and other great musicians have used it in the past and I believe “Suffer Suffer” will be a great tool today as well. Nigeria and Africa have come a long way to be resolving issues through violence and I believe round table discussions by leadership should be the option at all times.
The #FIRE hit maker believes Nigeria has what it takes to resolve its problems and therefore quick measures should be put in place to curb any form of violence that will lead to the loss of lives. The voice of the people is the voice of God so if the people say #EndSARS, #EndSWAT then it means #EndSARS & EndSWAT.
Nigeria is a democratic country and not a Police State therefore any form of Police Brutality should NOT be entertained. Tell me, how do you form a security group that is unconstitutional and use it to brutalize innocent citizens just because of their looks? That’s primitive and undemocratic and shouldn’t be encouraged.
“I’ll also like to call on ECOWAS and the AU to quickly step into this issue before what is currently happening in Lekki spreads into other parts of Nigeria. If there is chaos in Nigeria, one of the countries that will directly be affected negatively will be Ghana because of our close relationship and therefore with Ghana as the ECOWAS Chair I believe President Nana Akufo Addo will quickly call on his counterparts to find a quick solution to it just like they recently did with the Mali Crisis.”
“I strongly believe Africa needs each other in times like this and it’s my dream to see Africa as One with Possibly One President in the Near future. Nothing is Impossible and we know that Together As One we can Achieve Greatness, Pzeefire told BeenieWords in an exclusive interview.”
“My EP Is To Present A Globalized Version Of African Culture” – Rocky Dawuni Reveals As He Shares Album Cover
GRAMMY nominated Afro Roots Songwriter/Singer, Producer and activist, Rocky Dawuni, is releasing a brand-new EP on October 30, 2020 entitled “Voice of Bunbon Vol. 1” The EP is available TODAY for Pre-Save & Pre-Order at: https://tinyurl.com/yy7xo2nf

Rocky’s move back to his home country of Ghana is evident in this latest offering which explores contemporary aspects of local music in a creative quest to extend its global appeal.
According to Rocky, “these new songs were born out of my desire to present and project music that is rooted in the deep cultural traditions of Ghana yet presented in way that it can relate to the modern world. Bunbon is my home town in Northern Ghana. My musical career has always been firmly inspired by my upbringing in the royal family of Bunbon and being educated in the indigenous ways. This exposure to cultural appreciation has served as an important part of my world view and music. My vision for this EP is to present a globalized version of African culture. It also represents my maturity over the years as a voice for social consciousness. In a time of uncertainty, we need songs and hymns that can touch our emotional nerve and remind us that love and hope are an indestructible aspect of the human experience that no amount of fear can take away.”
Rocky’s latest offering explores the diversity of his “Afro Roots” sound fusing modern and traditional musical trends in Ghana and across the continent. “Voice of Bunbon” is a diverse sonic experience with songs ranging from acoustic to beat driven anthems to cultural explorations utilizing aspects of Afrobeats, Highlife, Reggae, Soul and Pop and beond. The inspirational words to the songs focus on love, resilience, faith, joy and hope. Running through the EP is a theme of empowerment, urging the listeners to think critically on current issues.
