Nigerian Idol Host Anis Halloway releases video for “We Nor Wan Dat” inspired by the Sierra Leone Civil War



Sierra Leonean musician Anis Halloway was introduced to the Nigerian audience when he was a contestant on Season 2 of MTN Project Fame West Africa. The Nigeria-based singer actually started doing music in the UK, where he had a UK underground hit single titled “Eyes on Me” which sparked media interest with interviews from BBC 1xtra, RWD Magazine and Touch Magazine.

Anis is currently the host of Nigerian Idol along with Yemisi – he has just released a new video for one of the songs on his debut album – “Small Beginnings“. The song is called “We Nor Wan Dat“. According to Anis, “The story is an adaptation of my experience in the Sierra Leone Civil war, but more so, the concept of the video cuts across the world as it highlights the gruesome realities of war…

The song was written and produced by Anis while the video was directed and produced by Nodash for Something Unusual Studios.

    History has been made in egypt…but i want to say here that naija has gone through worst times more than egypt. What about the people going from maidugiri that was stopped, and the muslims were othered out….the entire christians were shot dead just last week.
    I am not against any ethnic group here or religion…but good leadership would have prevented many innocent from going to their grandfathers.
    Abiola was killed…good for the yoruba’s
    The naija that area has become hell in reality
    obasanjo was a shame to the yorubas

    if you think that electricity would come to this country in 10yrs because you voted….think twice

    if you think that the niger delta would become peaceful in 20 years……again think twice

    the so called rice may be a victim tommorrow.

    I am only saying that whoever wins the election and does not bring us electricity in 3yrs….we should all come together in the largest peaceful protest in human history in the whole nation and demand our legitimate right. if we have to die for our children born or unborn so be it.

    There should be no cowardice among any group this time
