‘Obama be thy name’: Kenyan reggae video from A24

Beware, this is catchy – it’s got Journalism.co.uk bopping on its swivel chair this morning:

… ‘All the voters of America / Barack Obama be thy name / Thy change shall come / Thy will be done / As it is in American dream’…

Here’s an “addictive reggae song with the jamaican ‘proactive’ beat” from Ohanglaman ‘Makadem’ … “an artistic Kenyan contribution regarding the US presidential elections, unique for its universal rather than local or tribal angle. A must hear and a must see.”

It can’t be embedded here, so follow the link above to listen. It’s a recent offering from A24, the all-African video agency which launched in September. All rights information is listed below the video.
