In early August, South African songstress Msaki memorialized the Marikana Massacre with a song titled “Blood Guns and Revolution.” She has just released the music video of the song.
The song details the tragedy of 16 August 2012, when police brutally killed 10 protestors following a standoff. It is said to be the most brutal use of force by the police since 1976. Anyway, Msaki did a fine job of memorializing the tragedy.
It is hard to watch the video and not be moved to reflection. That was the aim of it, after all.
“Blood Guns And Revolutions” should interest just about any politically conscious fellow out there. Or anyone interested in good governance and sensitive police force anywhere in the world. It is worth checking out, so you might want to give it a few minutes of your time.
By the way, Msaki is one of the guests co-opted for the Rosefest by another South African singer, Shekhinah Donnell. The festival has several other female singers on the lineup, including Busiswa, Boity, Simmy, Holly Rey and Ami Faku.
