Afrikan Boy "Border Business"
Afrikan Boy boldly tackles one of the year’s most pressing political issues in “Border Business,” a track about the social hardships that surround immigration. The song was recorded back in 2009, but the current refugee crisis led the rapper to re-release the track along with a self-directed music video shot in “The Jungle” refugee camp in Calais, France.
While there, the rapper also shot a 15-minute documentary, which captures his performance at the camp, and highlights the stories of young refugees seeking asylum. With “Border Business,” Afrikan Boy make a powerful and perceptive statement about the plight of refugees and he reminds us of how impactful it can be when musicians use their art to address social matters in a meaningful way.
