Some sing about love, women, money…others take a break from it all to address a disease Africans get seem to get rid of: corruption and greed.
These are just 5 songs from Ghana, Nigeria and Kenya, all singing about our African leaders leaving citizens to rot while they enjoy their comfort from a distance.
Fela Kuti – International Thief Thief
Fela went into detail and sang about how the Western world is playing a role in the corruption that’s deeply entrenched in most African leaders.
Sauti Sol – Tujiangalie
Tujiangalie is a Swahili word for “self-reflection.” On this song, the Kenyan band talked about problems Kenya is facing: bad leadership, corruption, economic inequality and more and questioned the democracy of the country.
King Ayisoba- Wicked Leaders
The song is about well.. wicked leaders and how selfish they are.
Wanlov – Never Go Change
This simple song just preaches one thing: our leaders are never going to change. Why? Because as long as they are comfortable in power, not suffering what their citizens are dealing with… they are cool!
Tekno – Better
On this Tekno sang about the Nigerian leaders and how they turn a blind eye to the suffering of their people. He sings for the hope that one day it will all be better.
Burna Boy – Another Story
We all know this song. Manifest’s verse detailed what happens in every African country. Our leaders doing the same thing over and over again, making empty promises and feeding us with lies every election period.
