Ghanaian dancehall and reggae
performer #Samini is using his music to draw attention to the desperate need for
clean and affordable drinking #water in his home country.
One third of the population there lacks
access to safe water.
While on a tour in the United States, he
performed at a benefit concert for the
Safe Water Network (SWN), an NGO co- founded in 2006 by the late actor, activist
and philanthropist Paul Newman.
SWN has been operating in #Ghana since 2009 where it is helping to build
and maintain water processing plants.
When BBC Africa’s Leslie Goffe caught
up with Samini in New York, the artist
told him that it is time for more African
entertainers to put a message in their music. Source: BBCsamini_
