The City of Houston Texas, the airwaves, and the world in General will be thrilled as artists conglomerate on the 19th of May in Houston Texas for a solidarity Project tagged “Bright Light Solidarity Project” Speaking to Newsmen in Houston Texas at the unveiling of the initiative Franco Bonghan the CEO of Records said” Everywhere in the world people are starving, hunger and poverty remain the most important threats to human civilization.
Technology is growing at a very fast pace yet, these advances in technology only help to make the world more dangerous than safe. There is a dire need for solidarity among nations, among tribes, among regions, and within races to provide a moral foundation for understanding and cooperation. Cultural relativity has never been more important than now as we face great challenges of civil wars” He cited , In Congo women are being killed and raped in their numbers, in Syria children and women are being killed , in Jerusalem, we still dream of a lasting peace that will guarantee dignity to both Palestinians and Israel, in Sudan, the two states solution still suffers from the ashes of a 50 year civil war. Dictators around the world still holding their people in bondage just to survive another day in office. In Nigeria, the Boko Haram poses a major threat to stability and peace. The threat of nuclear weapon, People are leaving more in fear than peace, AIDS, malaria in Africa, cancer is killing faster that the ak47’s can shoot, we watch these every day as we drop our kids off to school just to learn there was a shooting at the same school, we realize our place of worship has become a place of fear, the ‘Boston Marathon’ after a century of togetherness has become the ‘Boston Bombing’.
Stressing further DJ skeeper said that ‘The bright light Solidarity Project’ is a simplistic musical approach in addressing some of these issues as he sing a little of the lyrics. Adding his voice the Nigerian Super star KELLY HANSOME said that he agreed to be part of the event because “As musicians and music executives, we owe a duty of leadership to our fans, our families, our countries and to the world to spread awareness through music, what we sing can go a long way to heal the divide and pave a channel of understanding through our lyrical manifestations which is often listened beyond the scope of our imagination. Music is live, music is love, music is vital in every struggle, when we sing, we don’t just express our sentiments, but also use our musical influence as goodwill ambassadors to fight for change in this fast world of violence, crime, hatred, tribal and religious chauvinism. Our music can and will bring a great contribution in fighting injustice, religious intolerance, women’s rights, the right to education, the right to freedoms as we all crave for a better world of tomorrow as already am doing in my new Song “ome Nwanne ”.
