EMSTAR – WHICH WAY (#ChibokGirls500DaysGone)


Emstar; real name Emeka Samson Ndokwa; drops this emotional thrilling and heart touching rap single titled "WHICH WAY".
The song is in memory of the abducted Chibok School girls who have been missing for over a year.
 The lyrics of this song would make you struggle to hold back tears as he imagines what it could be like for the girls and their parents.
Its been 500days, yet he maintains that we must never forget them. In the wake of the killings and voices in the land. One question begging answer is "Which Way" are we headed?
 Listen, comment and never forget, because they could have been somebody you knew.
