Singer Msaki added: "It's been such a privilege to have the opportunity to encourage this group of dynamic young Africans, future artists, scholars and global citizens. To have the chance to collaborate with these amazing musicians was such an enjoyable experience, artists that embody the spirit of independence, community and innovation - I see long lasting relationships forged."

"To all the learners at the school, set your dreams high, there is greatness within you and I hope that you all achieve everything you set out to achieve," she continued. 

The track was released on 24 January, coinciding with International Day of Education.
