The ‘8 GOALS FOR AFRICA’ song is part of an awareness and advocacy campaign developed by the United Nations in South Africa on the 8 Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
The MDGs are an eight-point road map with measurable targets and clear deadlines for improving the lives of the world´s poorest people. They make up the Millennium Declaration, which was an historic promise made by 189 world leaders in 2000. Ten years later our leaders are meeting again on 20 September in New York to review the progress, it is up to us to make sure world leaders keep their promise.
The ‘8 GOALS FOR AFRICA’ music video will be screened throughout the Football World Cup. On the day of the finals, all 8 artists will come together to sing the song in a live performance at the Soccer City Fan Fest in Johannesburg.
