I saw an article on Al Jazeera about Tiken Jah Fakoly, a Reggae singer from Côte d'Ivoire.

Tiken Jah Fakoly is a star - a celebrated reggae singer from the Ivory Coast who sings about the poverty and corruption that has plagued his continent.

We travel with him from the stage to the two village schools he funds - all part of his pledge to fight for the poor and the marginalised.

"There's something wrong. Africa is one of the richest continents, yet the people who live on this continent are the world's poorest. That's a problem. We're living in a house of gold and we can't get medical care, we can't send our kids to school, we can't get enough to eat. That's the paradox, it's historical and no one can fix it except us. It is our unity that will allow us to overcome it."
