The first-ever Peace Day Anthem will premiere at the Peace One Day Youth Celebration in Kigali, Rwanda on September 21, in front of thousands of young people and beamed live in Rwanda and the world on the Rwanda Broadcasting Agency, RBA, network.
The anthem, written by musician Zwai Bala and produced by Coke Studio Africa, is hoped to inspire a generation of young people to celebrate Peace Day as a catalyst for sustainable peace in the region.
The anthem will be performed by top artists of the African music industry Ice Prince (Nigeria), Dama Do Bling (Mozambique),Maurice Kirya (Uganda), Alikiba (Tanzania) and Wangechi(Kenya), who will be joined by leading dance groups Krest Crewand Jabba Junior, and artists Innoss’B, Urban Boyz, and Knowless on the day.
The Peace Day Anthem will be available on iTunes from September 21, and all proceeds will go to the non-profit organization, Peace One Day to support its mission to reach three billion people with the message of Peace by 2016, with the hashtag #PeaceDay.
The campaign is central to the social campaign encouraging widespread action on the day, being a key tool towards achieving that goal.
The Peace One Day Youth Celebration 2015, which is part of Peace One Day’s wider campaign in the region made possible by the Howard G. Buffett Foundation, is being organised in partnership with the Rwandan National Unity and Reconciliation Commission, NURC, and supported by the Rwandan Ministry of Youth and ICT and the Ministry of Sports and Culture.
