Yousson N’Dour uses his voice for a great course yet again. Back in 1985, N’Dour used his voice to unite people to fight against the unfairness of the apartheid era and the liberation of Nelson Mandela. Two nights ago, Yousson N’Dour joined forces with BET’s Jeff Johnson and Tichina Arnold from “Everybody Hates Chris“, for the ” All For Africa – Knock Out Poverty” celebration. The night was a celebration to raising money, and more awareness, for one of the biggest problems that Africa faces today–poverty.
As we all know this is a serious issue that unfortunately affects thousands of souls daily. All for Africa did an outstanding job giving hope where it is needed the most. The main event featured Nigeria’s Eromosele “Bad Boy” Albert, and Ghana’s Ossie Duran duking it out for the IBF All African Light Middleweight Championship. The other boxers were Kingsley Ikeke (Nigeria) and Ramadan Sulidan (Sudan) for the WBC North American Light Middleweight Championship; and Jaffa “The African Assassin” Ballogou (Togo) and Manu Ntoh (Cameroon) were the light heavyweight boxers.
Joining forces with All For Africa was Jamhuri Wear’s one and only Kimathi, and the Juxtapower dancers. Lets all learn and lend a helping hand and make a difference.
