We are all Trayvon Martin – The 2face “One love” Tribute

by Hauwa Gambo

 

In this video, 2face Idibia dedicates his song, One Love to Trayvon Martin, 17-year-old black American kid shot and killed by neightbourhood watchman George Zimmerman.

According to his official Youtube channel, this special acoustic version  is “To show his concern and plea for love and unity, irrespective of your colour or your race we all need to show love to our fellow humans.”

2face makes a strong global political statement by appearing in the video in a hoodie. It would be recalled that some conservative commentators in America had said Martins might not have been killed if he hadn’t been in a hoodie.

See the video:

Well done, 2face.

  1. First off, if the person who wrote this article had spent five minutes doing a little googling, you would have found out that Trayvon Martin was not shot by a policeman, but a self-styled neighbourhood watchman.

    That aside, I love 2Face, I think he's a great musician, one of Africa's best. But really, singing about Trayvon Martin? How many times has he sang about any of the numerous people killed by police in Nigeria illegally every month? This seems like one of those things you do because it makes you look good without any backlash. If he sang about a Nigerian shot by Nigerian police, like one of those boys killed during Occupy Nigeria, probably someone might not like it. Singing about Trayvon Martin as a Nigerian is safe. Dedicate one song to a Nigerian killed by police, call his name like you did here, then it'll mean something.

cool good eh love2 cute confused notgood numb disgusting fail
