Legendary Nigerian musician, 2Baba has pledged to donate 60 percent of the proceeds from his song to the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR), Nigeria, to assist Refugees and Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs).

According to him, the song would be launched in commemoration of the World Refugees Day on June 20.
“I have decided to dedicate my time, resources and my voice to support the UNHCR in this massive endeavor of alleviating the sufferings of displaced persons.
On the June 20th which is the world refugees’ day, I am going to be commissioning a song and this song will be monetized.
60 per cent of the proceeds will be donated to the UNHCR to further its humanitarian effort to alleviating the plights of refugees and IDPs. We want people to join in this campaign by downloading the song to use it as their ring tones, caller back tones.
This download, which would cost between N50 to N100, it’s an opportunity for every Nigerian to contribute in their own little way to the course of assisting displaced persons.’’
