Save The World

This is a piece of art for the Earth and a statement of our readiness to save our dear Planet. The song has a native appeal of Afro-Cuban rhythm fused with Pop/Dance and Folk style drama. Initiated by myself (Collekta), I intimated Marshall-Muze about it and the soul in the music. To achieve depth, the project needed a female touch what it received by the vocal of Poggy and the poetic consciousness of Akwasi Marley. A gentle reminder that there's no Planet B for humans. We can only Save The World if we do it together!

Child Song

  • Creativity Award
  • Album Track

Child Song is a radical call to humanity for Children and Mothers, who have marginally been neglected. It is a reawakening that we all need to focus on a crucial part of society. It is a melodramatic fusion of Jazz, Pop, Poetry, Spoken word and Consciousness. The structure was layered by Marshall-Muze, who sang expressively on the first verse and hook. Akwasi Marley a Ghanaian Rapper and poet played a vital role in the collaboration. Collekta was the producer and highlighted with animated back-ups. Everyone was once a Child.

The World is a Country (Where you From?)

This song stems from classical Reggae, with iconic bass guitar and drum kits. It carries a message of ‘LOVE’ and the idea of looking at the world as a country on its own, regardless of our nationalities, cultures or anything that makes us look different, as human beings. With a chorus chanting the mantra "the world is a country, the world is a country", the nations are called onto this notion, through the solo preaching of Akwasi Marley, from Ghana, in rhythmic poetry, and Marshall-Muze, from Nigeria, in his electrifying set of vocals.
