The Accountability Music Awards, in collaboration with Accountability Lab, the One Campaign, the African Union and Trace Africa, highlight how musicians are using music as a mechanism to speak against corruption, advocate for good governance and heighten the call for accountability for a better future for our continent.

This year’s final nominees, selected from more than 200 nominations from Africans across the continent, include songs by Winky D, Femi Kuti, King Kaka, Ney Wa Mitego and Angelique Kidjo with Yemi Alade.

The public can make their voices heard by voting for “the song that speaks for all of us” on the Accountability Music Awards website by Tuesday, 30 November. The winner will be announced on International Anti-Corruption Day (Thursday, 9 December).
