The last few months have been overwhelming, but necessary.
Black Lives Matter protests and walks started in America have sparked a conversation for equality all over the world. The conversation has involved calling out big brands, celebrities and even other black people, on their injustices, ignorance and lack of diversity. However, it is pertinent to the movement to involve the reason for.
For Eritrean born Canadian Kibra, that conversation starts with a reminder on the beauty and strength of black skin. In her new single ‘Another Sun’, Kibra speaks on the beauty of being black and likens that to the sun.
“Here I am, I won’t run, melanin and all, I ain’t scared of the sun” She sings.
Released on Juneteenth, and featuring Ghanaian rapper Ko-Jo Cue, Kibra connects the dots between the experiences of African Americans and Africans. The video, directed by Afrosinek, features local creatives including models, stylists, and dancers.
Shot on the lush beaches of Ghana during the country’s Year of Return celebrations, Another Sun is a beautiful product of collaboration between Africans and African Americans.
