Some popular musicians including Okyeame Kwame, Efya, Wiyaala have been chosen as ambassadors for the “My African Union, My Voice” campaign which forms part of the activities of the “State of The Union” (SoTU) – a Pan African Civil Society Organisations project currently being implemented in ten African countries including Ghana.
The artistes joined the campaign with the promise to inspire and create a platform for change in the perception towards the African Union.
Following the official launch of the campaign in Accra at the Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park, the Okyeame Kwame posted on Facebook;
I would want to say a very Big Thank you to the African Union, IDEG and Pro-Lynk media consult for Choosing me as a champion for My African Union, My Voice campaign. I promise to be the Voice for Africa to inspire and to create a platform for change. I promise that through my music, my actions and in-actions i will remind My African Leaders of their promises to the people.
The aim of the campaign is to raise public awareness of the objectives of the African Union and promote active citizen participation in the implementation of its protocols, conventions and policy decisions at the level of the 54 Member-States of the Union.
