|Shadow ,the Liberian artist who released a song called Ebola in Town
A Liberian musician has put his talents and fame to use in an awareness song for the Ebola Virus disease.
As the death toll from Ebola rises ever higher and the incurable disease is found in an airline passenger, a
dance tune called ‘Ebola in Town’ is supplying the soundtrack to the fast-spreading deadly new plague.
Created by an artist in Liberia called Shadow, Ebola in town has taken over the airwaves amid mounting panic at the seemingly unstoppable spread of Ebola.
Against a frenetic back rhythm, the lyrics are basically a public health warning about not kissing a person who has Ebola and the perils of eating bush meat. Experts reckon Ebola is transmitted to humans via the consumption of animals like monkeys and baboons in countries like the Democratic Republic of Congo and Liberia.
Shadow raps: “Don’t touch your friend! No kissing! No eating something. It’s dangerous!” The lyrics advise: “If you like the monkey don’t eat the meat, If you like the baboon, I said don’t eat the meat, If you like the bat-o, don’t eat the meat.” Talking about the success of his song, Shadow said: "This song is everywhere, in every town, every village, every county, every home. Radio is playing it, it’s in homes. Everything is taking it, so it’s like the biggest song in the country."
You can't under estimate the power of music,this song will reach places that news broadcasts can't reach and inform the kids of the do's and dont's of the deadly ebola disease by them hearing this song everyday and singing the lyrics
