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.
