Information about the song
I think “Dear African Girl” is one of the most beautiful and powerful song I have ever composed, and it was very important for the chorus to be in my mother tongue (Luganda).
It is aimed at all black women who have felt inferior because of the simple fact of having a different skin color and that has led them to want to change it to feel loved, forgetting where they came from.
A song to remind all of them that we must accept and love ourselves as we are; strong, beautiful and intelligent women. Only then will we live happily and at peace with ourselves and we will be able to achieve everything we set out to do.
