I am so humbled and grateful to have been a part of this incredible song written by the legendary @warren_diane that has earned her an 11th Oscar nomination! (Click the link in bio to watch the whole song). Being able to work with Diane and @johndebney was simply a dream come true.

For it to be because of a powerful anthem for women around the world, standing together against domestic violence just makes it an all-around unbelievable experience. I am grateful for the opportunity to represent Africa and Swahili speakers in this masterpiece.

Diane deserves to win this Oscar. Special thanks to Valeria Altobelli and her amazing organization @mission.org_official for spearheading this incredible international movement,” she captioned.
