Members of the GROW campaign recently launched the video clip entitled “Where is my 10%” a hymn offered to farmers for African International Year of Family Farming.
This video clip produced in family farms in Senegal and Nigeria defends the place and role of African farmers. It is aimed to remind the African Heads of States and ask the public to support African farmers by consuming local products.
The song “Where is my 10%” was produced in November 2013 by a group of West African artists with the support of the GROW campaign in West Africa. The video sees 2Face Idibia, Lami Phillips, Sound Sultan Titi Lokei (Nigeria) join Baaba Maal, Daara J Family, DK (Senegal), Ceepee (Mauritania), Danny Lee (Niger) and Smarty (Burkina Faso) to ask African Heads of States to keep their promises.
A petition to ask the Heads of African State to translate their commitments into concrete actions was launched in partnership with the NGO ONE and farmers organizations across Africa to support the campaign ” Where is my 10%. ‘
