The Problem

Device manufacturers

– They are often based outside Africa and too remote from the problem and liability

– The can claim blissful ignorance and the still source the raw materials

– Their buying power put every one downstream at the disadvantage to feed their demand with questions

Raw material sourcing companies

– Africa is cash economy and is very vulnerable to such businesses

– The fact that the operate a cash in hand service makes then attract to Africans seeking such revenue

– The do not employ the kids directly

– African Governments allow them to operate

African raw materials scouts

– These are African men that source raw materials and also source the kids to do the work

– Targeting desperate families with kids available to work

– The families have little alternative

African child miners

– Desperate parents send the kids out to work

– Children as small as a few years old

– The money they make is needed by their families

– They have little alternative means of surviving

A New Approach

We are not against mining, we believe its an industry that needs to exist, we are after a better condition for the kids exposed to local abuse related to mining

Like any raw material from Africa, the demand is what has driven companies to push their supply chain to source the raw materials, regardless the impact

The plight of the kids in Africa has been well documented and it is clear that the well-being of the African child is being placed on one end of the scale and on the other end is capitalism.

Like the oil sector that is also in the same scenario, everyone knows, no one stands a chance against capitalism. Their parents give them to the scouts to work in the miners.

The aim of our project is to use capitalism to fight capitalism and take the African child out of the equation that fights capitalism

Its aims to inject capital into the problem by empowering the kids to follow a different live

Key Players

BM – FOUNDER

– Afrobeat is a powerful tool in bringing change to Africa. It was an essential tool used by President Mandela to bring an end to Apartheid. We intend to use it to right this fundamental wrong in Africa.
– I invite you not only to listen to my songs but engage in social activism to change lives in Africa.
– Our songs from Africa are end products, the raw materials are the lives and environments where these kids live in and it is only right that we give back to them, a piece of that cake

Ben Omakin Oguntala – FOUNDER

– Music is a development opportunity in Africa and it helped the South Africans during the fight against the Apartheid Government.
– As the African in Chief, it is my job to evince how music can be used to break the cycle of poverty in the communities where these kids come from.
– Yes we can sing and dance but we can also add to that, robust social change that gives the kids an alternative live to such abuse.
