#Peace4ALL Music Video

“We just wanna dedicate this song, to everyone who lost their love ones, in the wars

and all we wanna do right now is to create a #PeaceVillage for everyone to live in

we wanna change the way that people live and to #defyhatenow.”

Lyrics: Jaiksana A. José (RonnyRiddimz pan de beat – intro.)

The #PeaceVillage uses music to send positive and educational messages through songs and poems, raising awareness of the consequences of violence and preaches the importance of peace building by discouraging hate speech online and offline. The music program was designed to break down the prejudices that exist among South Sudanese communities, and foster a culture of reconciliation by sending positive & educational messages through music & poems. Brought together by their desire and commitment to fight ignorance about hate speech online and the effects of war, the groups embeds education in their lyrics in a bid to #defyhatenow.
