  • “Please find attached to this e-mail a creation of mine, a song entitled Ubuntu*. I wrote and recorded Ubuntu in response to the Song Competition organized by CEGENSA in July this year. The task was to write an empowering song about women and gender issues. I was inspired to write my song after reading Professor Ogundipe’s book. I am happy to share Ubuntu with you. Thank you.”
