Kenyan singer Alisha Popat has sung a tribute to the continent, with help from award-winning South African Zolani Mahola from Freshly Ground and US YouTube celebrity Peter Hollens.

‘Oh Africa’ was made available last Friday, March 15, as a dedication to the expansive and ever changing continent.

‘Oh Africa’ is a passionate work of art expressing the artists love and pride in their nation and the continent at large, reads a statement.

“Equally it represents the magic of the continent. The purpose of the song is to shout out to the world that it is Africa’s time to shine: what once was innocence is now excitement and what once was fear is now ambition,” according to Alisha.

The track is a re-make of Leonard Cohen’s super famous ‘Hallelujah’, re- written by Alisha Popat, and produced with the help of Wanyoike Kimani and Ulopa Ngoma.
