Pepsi Presents ‘Oh Africa’!

Posted on: April 9, 2010


Pepsi-Cola International has teamed up with GRAMMY nominees Akon and Keri Hilson and the two-time GRAMMY-winning Soweto Gospel Choir to create an African inspired track, “Oh Africa.” to benefit underprivileged African youth. The track and accompanying video is set for international release on Music’s Biggest Night, the 52nd GRAMMY Awards on Sunday, Jan. 31, and will premiere during the GRAMMY Awards Pre-Telecast stream on “GRAMMY Live,” an online destination for all things GRAMMY featuring 72 hours of live coverage on http://www.grammy.com during GRAMMY Weekend. 

“Oh Africa,” written by hip-hop duo and writers to the stars, Rock City, and produced by Prettiboifresh, sees 16 aspiring young music artists from around the world join forces with international superstar Akon and  Hilson. A portion of the proceeds from the energetic new track, which will also be the soundtrack for the Pepsi’s 2010 football campaign, will go towards supporting disadvantaged African youth. Akon’s Konfidence Foundation and other great charities designated by Hilson and Pepsi will partner in the distribution of funds.

The Konfidence Foundation was founded by Akon in 2006 and is headed up by his mother, President & CEO Ms. Kine Gueye Thiam. It is a 501(c)(3) charity dedicated to increasing public awareness of the conditions in Africa and providing African youth with access to learning and recreational environments equipped with modern technology, educational materials, recreational resources, and health and wellness services.
