“Remember Bob Marley and The Wailers’ song ‘Africa Unite’, one which created much interest in South Africa? Well, a verse of ‘Brighter Day’ calls for unification, a feature of ‘Africa Unite’.
The words of Mackie Conscious song are:
“Let’s come together now
Till death do us part
We are just love from the heart.
To secure the resources of our land
So, let it be
One God, one aim, one destiny
True Africans Liberty…”
Mackie Conscious states that “the growing interest surrounding ‘Brighter Day’ and others is a feeling of achievement.
People have been reaching out to me because of the music I have been releasing which is reaching the airwaves regularly in Africa.”
“This speaks volumes as there is a generation of youths ready to embrace the culture of Africa, and to recognize those who are part of this movement.”
