Where Will it End- Musica for Africa

The song “Where Will it End” is a mix of many different souls that have worked together to remember the terrible Massacre of Garissa of  April 2 (2015), in which 148 people were killed and 79 were injured.
So it is a hymn for those who were so young and full of aspirations, but they have been killed because of religious reasons.

Who are the main authors of this song?
There are two versions of “Where Will it End”.

The first version is sung by two African reggae artists: Thuthukani Cele, who is a South African native and former musical collaborator keyboardist of Lucky Dube, and the Congolese Artist, Mermans Mosengo, a member of the international group Playing for Change. Together they sang as soloist in English, along with the choir Wits of the University of Johannesburg, which played the song by Mariano, (an Italian song writer and producer) in the Zulu language. The Witt choir is specialized in African tribal chants.

While, in the second version of “Where Will it end”, there is voice collaboration of the New York singer Clayton Bryant, who has worked with artists such as Bruce Springsteen, Elton John, Sting, Aretha Franklin, John Legend, Natalie Cole, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and others. He played the song with the important group Soweto Gospel Choir, who has sung with famous band like U2.

The lyrics are written in English by Nikki Turner, who has treated various social problems: in this case, the religious discrimination.

This great project has taken the name of “Musica for Africa“, which is based on love among people with a deep awareness of respect for the religious beliefs of the others.
The song “Where Will it End” has been released in online stores and it is available since the 31st of March 2017. It is the symbol of remembrance and it can help us to think more about the brutality of human beings. At the same time, this song has a positive message: it invites people to stay strong and carry on.

Lyrics of “Where Will it End”:

When all of your dreams have turned to nightmares
And all of your days seems dark as night
When you are the danger in every shadow
Then only you can make it right

Tell me how can you hate me
When you don’t know me
And who said you should hurt me
Before we’ve met
And tell me who was it told you
That I could never be your friend
So many lies

Where will it end
Time doesn’t care what road we walk down
Our choice the dark road or the light
We have such a tiny window to live our lives
And only we can make it right

Tell me how can you hate me
When you don’t know me
And who said you should kill me
Before we’ve met
And tell me who was it told you
That I could never be your friend
So many lies

Where will it end
