Winky D’s 2019 song, Njema, a title that translates to handcuffs, reflects the frustrations of young Africans, spread messages of inspiration and calls for change.
Accountability Music Award organisers said Njema “talks about how the citizens of Zimbabwe have been handcuffed by corruption, encourages people to free themselves from scenarios that will delay progress.”
Voting is now open on www.accountabilitymusicawards.org and closes on November 30.
The Accountability Music Awards are designed to recognise African musicians and artists fighting corruption using music to spotlight the negative impacts that corruption and a lack of transparent and accountable government institutions have on countries.
In 2019, Nigerian musician, Cill born Chioma Ogbonna won the Accountability Awards for her song “All You’ve Got” which urged citizens to take an active role in pushing for social and political reforms.
The Accountability Music Awards celebrate musicians who are using their music to support transparency and accountability in Africa.
We all love great songs, but what’s better than listening to great music whilst knowing you are supporting artists who are changing their countries for the better?
