Published

One CampaignONE Campaign has brought together fourteen African artistes to pressure African leaders do more and quickly fight the Ebola epidemic in West Africa, and take action to strengthen national health systems to prevent and contain future outbreaks.

In a new video, Akon (Senegal), Fally Ipupa (DRC), Angélique Kidjo (Benin), Danai Gurira (Zimbabwe) Ice Prince, Femi Kuti, Desmond Elliot and Praiz (Nigeria); Mafikizolo and T-bo Touch (South Africa), Victoria Kimani (Kenya), Diamond (Tanzania) and Magasco (Cameroon) are joined by a nurse who treated Ebola patients and an Ebola survivor in making this call.

The video, which is completely silent, highlights how the world waited too long to act, and over 5,000 lives were lost as a result.

The video ends with a call to action for citizens to sign ONE’s petition. The petition asks world leaders to step up and provide more trained personnel, materials, financing and international coordination to help stop Ebola.

Check on it!

    Who cares?? Since Ebola started you guys have not done anything.. not even a concert.. now that the White British Artists have initiated a concert… you are opening your big ass mouth to sing.. when its too late.. rubbish… Too late.. you Africans never initiate or take action for your continent.. always copying what the White men do for your continent.. AKON does not even like to speak his native language especially he was born in Senegal… but, likes to speak English.. I don’t like his voice tone anyway.. it is to sharpie…

    Please, let’s not fake realities, these guys are only taking the advantage of ebola to refresh their names in the minds of their fans, and give no damn about ebola or, Where were they all these while? Let’s just commit ebola into God’s hand and believe him to wipe it away in the shortest time, and get our minds off these pagans who descrbe themselves as ‘artistes’.
