Coming off of the release of his first single “Can’t Breathe” from his soon to be released debut album ‘Kontraband’, Kabaka Pyramid is set to release his second single titled ‘Borders’. Very often albums are released and viewed as a comprised body of work and a song for each mood but not necessarily a theme of any sort. With the second release from his debut album, one thing we can be sure of is Kabaka Pyramid will stay true to his art form and give us food for thought, lyrics with a message.
As the song begins, you hear the voice of Kabaka Pyramid plea for a change to break the borders down as we all a part of one nation. In 2016 the number of displaced people around the world reached an all-time high and continues to increase. Driven by growing instability and conflict, large numbers of people desperate for a peaceful life-or simply the opportunity to earn a living-attempting the journey to a better place to call home.
Borders is the second single released off Kabaka Pyramid debut album, “Kontraband” which features Ghanaian – Afro Beats artist and U.N.H.C.R. (United Nations High Commission for Refugees) ambassador, Stone Bwoy, produced by Damian ‘Jr. Gong’ Marley. The message couldn’t be timelier especially with the refugee crisis taking place across the world. Yet, for Kabaka Pyramid this is a single to bring awareness and enlightenment to the masses.
