  3. 'You have to be the voice of the voiceless' - A Pass

    A Pass

    A couple of weeks ago, I was talking to Nigerian musicians who were using their platforms and fanbases to draw the world’s attention to the #EndSARS protest movement. This week I’ve been talking to Ugandan reggae and dancehall artist A Pass, who’s been speaking out about recent events in his country.

    Presidential candidate Bobi Wine, himself a musician, was arrested, accused of breaching Covid-19 rules, and, in violence that followed between protesters and the security forces at least 28 people were killed.

    Quote Message: Some of the police guys and army guys are shooting and killing Ugandans and that’s really crazy and that’s why we are ranting and having all these things going on on social media."

    A Pass feels passionately that musicians like himself have an obligation to use their voices against injustice:

    Quote Message: What do you expect an artist to do? You being known is amazing, but you can’t be known and not speak up for the majority. Remember that the people made you who you are, so it’s only right to have a social responsibility. We cannot be silent when we see people being killed. You have to be the voice of the voiceless."

    A Pass gives short shift to those artists who might be afraid of the consequences for themselves:

    Quote Message: I should not worry about my life and what will happen to me if I say what I say. It hurts when you are doing a lot and you know other people are just keeping quiet. Why do you have so much energy to post when you are performing but you don’t have energy when people are killed in the streets to say anything? What has the government done to me? I have been vocal since 2014.
    Quote Message: OK you could see Bobi Wine being put in such a position but they’re not putting him in such a position because he’s an artist, they’re putting him in that position because he’s a presidential candidate. You shouldn’t keep your voice to yourself when you see other people dying in the streets. You cannot be a coward to that level."

    The full interview will be broadcast on This Is Africa this Saturday, on BBC World Service radio, and partner stations across Africa.
