TOGO: King Mensah – Afrika Yako

King Mensah, “The Golden Voice of Togo”, with a powerful cry for pan-African unity and the fight for democracy over corruption, with lyrics of “We forgot that the real power of Africa is us” and hearkening to African leaders who were killed before their time, like Patrice Lumumba of the DRC, Diallo Telli of Guinea, and Ruben Um Nyobè of Cameroon.

Here’s also a good little interview with King Mensah (subtitles in English) about sharing the roots of culture and the importance of choosing which language to sing in.
