Harrison “Harry Baba” Nwozo , CEO of Tribe X Entertainment had an idea on how to spread the message of African Unity to African’s worldwide. He reached out to a several African artists in the Washington DC area and beyond (ensuring that Africa’s diversity was represented as much as possible), attracting a few artists from a variety of African countries whom also possess different music styles. Dj Manixx his partner and collaborator on the internationally successful Green October Mixtapes series joined him in his efforts to make his dream a reality.
Harry Baba proceeded to call and email different African artists in the area who might be willing and ready to participate in the project. There was Tonestar (CEO Fly Musik Group), who also wore the hat of executive producer, song mixing, mastering and Video Director; Jay Cube the crooner/singer of the group O2 (Oxygen Two) and QD, who wrote and sang the hook (QD also wrote the intro); Rapper PSean, the other half of the group O2 ; Rapper Blakka P of W.A.F (West African Family music group); Rapper/ Singer, Naomi Achu, who raps in French and English, Songstress Rafiya, who sang her verse in French (but also sings in English) and Pa J, who represented with his Afro-Reggae/Dancehall style.
Tonestar, O2, QD & Pa J are all of Nigeria origin while Blakka P is from Sierra Leone, Naomi Achu, Cameroon and Rafiya the Democratic Republic of Congo.
The concept of the song, “Africans” is an extension of Harry Baba’s Green October vision of promoting African Unity through music. “African unity is a reality”, said Harry Baba. “The goal of this song is to show and remind ourselves how unity amongst us is an objective that is not difficult to achieve. I hope this song inspires the listeners enough to share it on every website, blog and forum, having the whole world sing along to the infectious hook…
