“Oh Africa” is a song recorded by Akon featuring Keri Hilson and The Soweto Gospel Choir as a charity single that will benefit underprivileged African youth. The song and the filmed music video were released today as a digital download on Grammy Night January 31, 2010.
Proceeds from the sale of the new song will go towards helping underprivileged African youth. Akon’s Konfidence Foundation will be one of the main charities set to receive a portion of the proceeds.
“Oh Africa” will accompany the new, global Pepsi football TV commercial and form the centerpiece of the brand’s new worldwide campaign “Refresh Your World,” which is based on enabling youth to make a positive change in the world in which they live.
