The largest collaborations between African musicians who are singing to fight against Ebola will be soon released. The stars are coming together to do an Ebola remake of the popular ‘We Are The World’ .

The include Banky W, Mafikizolo, Dr. Sid, Don Jazzy, Tiwa Savage, Praiz, Di’Ja, Reekado Banks, Iceberg Slim, D’Prince, Diamond, Iyanya, Mosa and Sean Tizzle. The original version was organized by Quincy Jones’ ‘We Are the World’ , and was originally written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie.

The Ebola version is similar to the one singer Wyclef Jean did a few years ago with 25 stars for Haiti. Nigerian singer Dr Sid shared snippets from the performance on his Instagram page.

“#africaagainstebola download the song coming out this week, donate and support the cause #WATW” he wrote.
