The African Union (AU) year of agriculture mission has begun and Kenyan singer Juliani has been been appointed alongside Koko Master D’banj of Nigeria as ambassadors of agriculture practice in Africa.
The two singers are expected to engage on Twitter on why Africa needs to practice agriculture. This campaign is aimed at helping Africa secure food, be sustainable and grow through agribusiness.
In Kenya, the campaign is focusing on ‘Farming is cool’, a campaign with Amiran Kenya that is intended to lure youth into self employment through agriculture.
The One campaign, if successful, will create millions of jobs, invest in agriculture and support small scale farmers.
D’banj travelled to Ghana to meet cocoa farmers.
Juliani, on the other hand will be part of the Farming is Cool concert on 14th Feb in Nakuru.
