Effy to drop anti-xenophobia single tomorrow

Namibian artists Effy, Odette and Araffath make their stand against xenophobia known.

In the midst of all the social ills happening around the world, social activist and artist decided to use the one peaceful weapon loved by everyone to bring about change. Gospel artist Effy aka God’s favourite son got into the studio with songbird Odette and producer Araffath and made a song condemning xenophobia. The single to be released tomorrow is, according to Effy an educational tool for the next generation.

Its imperative one uses his talent to educate as much as we entertain. The lyrics are like this: Yoh I’m ripped to the core, what are these killings for? Is it language and culture that caused these tribal wars. Now I’m in a different land the call me a foreigner. I would like to educate young people (the next generation) on the importance of unity and tolerance for one another,” he says.

Effy further says artists have a responsibility to make a difference as they are looked up to by many. Effy also believes that the little artists can do in their capacity can go a long way and perhaps change the perspectives of the youth.

“As an artist, you have a following, we have people who look up to us. So it’s important to use your influence to be a voice for the voiceless. If artists can unite and shed light on social ills such as xenophobia we will make a difference,” said Effy.
