Watch the 'Labelled Human' music video below!

50+ creatives are featured in this 'single-shot' music video.

We’ve all been labelled something, but we’re all #LabelledHuman

ONE OF OUR MOST EXCITING COLLABORATIONS EVER!

The ‘Labelled Human’ music video is a collaboration with an eclectic group of young musicians: Clef & Bandana; Bakhita; Sogallo and Caleb, with production by Phinoshey.

‘Labelled Human’ is a movement that unites humans through our differences and similarities. #LabelledHuman invites us all to share what we’ve been labelled, providing a platform for release and further understanding of those around us.

People from all walks of life came together under the theme ‘Design is for Everyone’ for a week of jam sessions, mural painting and design activities during Nairobi Design Week 2020. The music video showcases the basketball court restoration, murals, community exhibition, ‘The Urban Residency’, and accessibility features created during the festival. The project will be published in its entirety as a case study called ‘Paint The Court’, to inspire other communities to collaborate and create impact.

The video will premiere on YouTube, and the song will be distributed across all major streaming platforms. Get involved NOW on IG, FB, TikTok & Twitter!

LYRICS 🎶

At the end of the day
We’re all just labelled human
Learn from our mistakes
Capable of change

At the end of the day
We’re all just labelled human
Learn from our mistakes
Capable of change

Tunasonga mbele 
Tunaenda wote 
Tunasonga mbele
Tunasonga mbele

Why can’t we relate, yet we all be same?
It’s tearing us to pieces
For how we perceive this
We could not be tamed
If we just made the change
’cause at the end of the day we’re just labelled human!

At the end of the day
We’re all just labelled human
Learn from our mistakes
Capable of change

Tunasonga mbele (Labelled human)
Tunaenda wote
Tunasonga mbele  (Labelled human)
Tunasonga mbele

Voices so profound, I think I might renounce, reality, this sound etching deeper, finding Freedom in this self, endless passion, endless wealth, transcendent light in our spiritual rehlm, fluid purple energy, knowledge from life’s water well. 

Kissing love and I had to tell,Kissing life and I had to tell

A label ninasaka
What do I call my name
Ninachase hizi answers
And will I take the name
Ha’wasee wanataja
Wakicall the name
Of this guy baking stanzas
Something they do freely
Coz labels are free
But labels ain’t deep enough
To be who you be
So ata ka waitika
Majina wanaita
You don’t need a label to be
We’re all human

Fighter Gene
Genetic deep
Renegade never been afraid
Dragon fire my breath

Melt away the fears, Rises off the spear, douse away 
A symbol for hope
Don’t despair
Rise your head up high
To the sky we gaze
And follow in the light
As we shine this path
Labelled human
