Members of the GROW campaign recently launched the video clip entitled “Where is my 10%" a hymn offered to farmers for African International Year of Family Farming.

The song “Where is my 10%” was produced in November 2013 by a group of West African artists with the support of the GROW campaign in West Africa. The video sees 2Face Idibia,Lami Phillips, Sound Sultan Titi Lokei (Nigeria) join Baaba Maal, Daara J Family, DK (Senegal), Ceepee (Mauritania), Danny Lee (Niger) and Smarty (Burkina Faso) to ask African Heads of States to keep their promises.

Lami joined fellow West African artists Tuface Idibia, Sound Sultan, Baaba Maal to name a few to join in the GROW campaign to support African farmers and rural women.
