A new single from rapper/ song writer M.I. is a tribute to the four young students who were murdered by a mob in the Aluu community, Rivers State. It’s called “Ashes.”
In a statement, the artist said:
“4 young men died at the hands of a lynch mob on the 5th of October 2012. Whether or not their deaths will mean anything, or fade out of our minds as just another meaningless tragedy, is up to us and what we do from here on.
“I hope this song captures that message. Nothing would be worse than for a death to mean nothing.
