EES goes big against GBV
17 February 2021 | Art and Entertainment
While the Covid-19 pandemic has changed the world, gender-based violence (GBV) in especially developing countries has been exacerbated since women are now more enclosed by measures imposed to curb the spread of the virus.
Hoping to garner attention to this cause, musician EES is using his musical influence to address the issue by releasing his latest single, ‘Chooser’.
The song combines a profound message with a motivating pop sound that inspires listeners to choose the right way of treating woman. By adding African elements, this serious song fits well onto radio playlists across the globe.
Moreover, the powerful music video showcases images from the #ShutItAlldown demonstrations that took place in Namibia towards the end of 2020.
Ambassador for change
On why he released this song now, Ees said: “It’s time for musicians to become ambassadors for moving topics again”.
EES was approached by the Deutsche Welle’s African division / The 77 Percent, which fully supported and funded the project, strengthening the connection with the Namibian artist for future nation-building projects.
All the income generated by streaming and download sales of the song will be donated to the Monica Gender-Based Violence Organisation in Namibia.
The song is available via eesy-ees.com/chooser and on YouTube.
