Rebel Cities 20: With #Hip-Hop As Sound Track, Young Senegalese Say Enough Is Enough | Occupy.com
“The leaders hang on to the power
In spite of the opposition of the population.
Politicians are all the same, no difference.
Only broken promises and lies.
We are fed up of your nonsense,
We really need change.”
These are the lyrics of #Senegal hip hop artist Keur Gui in the 2014 song “Diogoufi,” which means “Nothing has changed.” The group is active in political organizing, walking the talk of their lyrics. In 2011, its leading vocalists were at the forefront of the Senegal #Y’en_A_Marre (“We Are Fed Up”), founded in the capital #Dakar alongside other artists, academics and activists.
