Kabaka Pyramid Tackles Human Rights in Second Single “Borders” off His Debut Album Kontraband

“Each human being deserve a place to call their own, yet so many have to journey far from home, little children in the darkness all alone seeking freedom, it’s about time we break those borders down, There’s too much segregation we’re all a part of one nation”

Coming off of the release of his first single “Can’t Breathe” from his soon to be released debut album ‘Kontraband’, Kabaka Pyramid is set to release his second single titled ‘Borders’. Very often albums are released and viewed as a comprised body of work and a song for each mood but not necessarily a theme of any sort. With the second release from his debut album, one thing we can be sure of is Kabaka Pyramid will stay true to his art form and give us food for thought, lyrics with a message.

 

As the song begins, you hear the voice of Kabaka Pyramid plea for a change to break the borders down as we all a part of one nation. In 2016 the number of displaced people around the world reached an all-time high and continues to increase. Driven by growing instability and conflict, large numbers of people desperate for a peaceful life-or simply the opportunity to earn a living-attempting the journey to a better place to call home. 

 

Borders is the second single released off Kabaka Pyramid debut album, “Kontraband” which features Ghanaian – Afro Beats artist and U.N.H.C.R. (United Nations High Commission for Refugees) ambassador, Stone Bwoy, produced by Damian ‘Jr. Gong’ Marley. The message couldn’t be timelier especially with the refugee crisis taking place across the world. Yet, for Kabaka Pyramid, this is a single to bring awareness and enlightenment to the masses. As we observe and read the day to day development on changing laws to remove refugees and take away their opportunities to seek a place to call home, many of us forget the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

 

Article 13: Everyone has the right to freedom of movement and residence within the borders of each State. Everyone has the right to leave any country, including his own, and to return to his country.

 

“I wanted to do this song because we as human beings need to do something about the refugee crisis around the world. It’s a shame to see the levels of separation displayed by governments and people when now is the time for unity. I also wanted to connect with my African family so I’m grateful that Stone Bwoy could lend his voice to the song and vision. We’re looking forward to big things this year and this song is the way we wanted to start it off” says Kabaka Pyramid.
