Kerr Gi Family, a conscious musical group, has released a new single entitled Linguere King, dedicated to women.

The single was released March 8 as part of marking International Women’s Day.

Speaking in an interview with Entertainment journalists recently at Manding Morry Academic School for Performing Arts in Kanifing, Bahama, a member of Kerr Gi, said the single talks about how women should be treated in the society.

He added that all women are queens/kings and should be given due respect, care and protection at all times in various households as well as at their workplaces.

“We hope that this song will make a positive change in our society in changing the number of men handling issues with women,” Bahama told journalists, saying they felt it necessary as artistes to advocate and call for the protection of women.

He also said music is beyond entertainment, as it can be used as a tool to educate the people by raising their awareness and consciousness affecting the society.

Kalilu Banja, secretary general of Gambia Music Union, also said the single is relevant, as Kerr Gi Family wants to add their voice to the celebration of International Women’s Day.

He noted that music can be used as a tool for social transformation in all aspects of human life.
