Multilingual Burkinabe reggae musician, Ibrahim Simpore known in showbiz industry as Ras Simposh has released his debut album dubbed: “Great Hemorrhage” to champion the fight against terrorism in Africa, especially in Burkina Faso.
The album which contained nine songs including My Life, Environment, My pains and La Grande Hemorragie was released on July 4, 2022 to preach against social injustice, deforestation, terrorism, seizures and inhuman acts while chronicling the need to love humanity.
Speaking in an interview with the Ghanaian Times yesterday, the “Martyrs Africains” hit maker noted that terrorism was depriving African youth the ability to live and lead a fulfilling life.
He lamented that many lives had been lost in Burkina Faso through terrorism and appealed to the government of Burkina Faso to deepen actions against terrorism while preserving lives.
“In this quest, governments must increase awareness creation and implement candid measures that will end these brutalities to save our brothers and sisters who are dying from these evil attacks,” Ras Simposh added.
He also called on the governments to bridge the social inequality gaps in Burkina Faso to help fuel positive change.
Touching on the album, Ras Simposh said three videos out of the nine songs were out, adding that “the video of the title track ‘La Grande Hemorragie’ which literally means ‘Great Hemorrhage’ features Ghanaian Reggae musician and radio presenter, Blakk Rasta.”
The video which was shot in the capital of Ghana, Accra, was to forge an alliance with the country while showcasing the rich culture of Ghana in promoting unity among Africans.
“I consider Ghana as my second home and I shot the video here to also preach to my country, Burkina Faso to see the peaceful environment Ghanaians are enjoying to also make Burkina Faso a home not only for the indigenes but for foreigners as well,” he added.
Ras Simposh who is also a member of African Child Project Association, a charity organisation urged fans to streamline his music on all digital stores.
