Tiken Jah Fakoly: his «last call» to Africans


The Ivory Coast star of reggae, Tiken Jah Fakoly has just launched his last song entitled “Dernier appel” (last call) to take out Africa from the underdevelopment, he said.

Through this song, Tiken supported that he “wants to show that agriculture is not a dirty business for the poorest society”.

The artist musician does not thus hide that he is interested in the land in Africa by leading a fight to reach food self-sufficiency on the continent.

Already agricultural entrepreneur with 15 hectares of rice cultivated in 2013, Tiken Jah Fakoly renewed his commitment to fight against food crisis.

“The initiative of Ali Fakara Touré inspires me. When I witnessed food crisis and the riots of hunger in 2008, I was shocked. We have many lands in West Africa, there is sun and it rains. There is manpower but a massive rural migration, declared the star.

He sings: “No harvest collected without being sown by someone. No hope for our revolts if nobody wants to lead them“.
