“We just wanna dedicate this song,
to everyone who lost their love ones, in the wars
and all we wanna do right now
is to create a #PeaceVillage for everyone to live in
we wanna change the way that people live and to #defyhatenow.”
Lyrics: Jaiksana A. José (RonnyRiddimz pan de beat – intro.)

#Peace4ALL #defyhatenow #PeaceVillage
The #PeaceVillage uses music to send positive and educational messages to people through songs, poems and raising awareness of the consequences of violence and preach the importance of peace building by discouraging hate speech online and offline.
The music program was designed to break down the prejudices that exist among South Sudanese communities and foster a culture of reconciliation by sending positive & educational messages through music & poems.
The group also works to offer psychosocial support to refugees through sharing messages of hope in their compositions and events. It’s aim is to comfort those who are traumatised due to issues of lost property, family members or hope.
Brought together by the desire and commitment to fight ignorance about hate speech online and the effects of war, the groups embeds education in their lyrics in a bid to #defyhatenow.
