Says BP “I’m honoured to be a part of this initiative”. Fallon met Nigerian artist Majek Fashek – whose song ‘We Are Not Afraid’ soundtracks the campaign – in 1991, when he traveled to Nigeria to spend time with the mythical singer they called ‘The Rainmaker’.
Video directed by Kevin Godley and produced by Ned O’Hanlon and soundtracked by Nigerian singer Majek Fashek’s song ‘We Are Not Afraid’.
All proceeds generated from the ‘We Are Not Afraid’ campaign will benefit the Human Rights Watch (HRW) and International Rescue Committee (IRC)
