Ivorian reggae man shows his pride in being African in the joyful visuals of “We Love Africa” from his latest album, Le monde est chaud.
For his tenth album, Tiken Jah Fakoly went back to his roots by recording at home, in the Radio Libre studios he built in Abidjan. The result is an undeniably powerful work in which he delivers the substance of his thoughts on the critical situations taking place right in front of us: the climate emergency, the dramas caused by immigration and the exploitation of Africa are the main themes of this record. In the midst of all its strong themes, the track “We Love Africa” serves as a lighter anthem on the pride of being African and the union of the continent to defend its wealth.
A few days ago, Tiken Jah Fakoly revealed the clip video of this unifying song. He staged it around a group of young African men and women in traditional clothing, celebrating their love for Africa in a unifying dance movement.
