A Liberian rap group has written a catchy tune to spread awareness of the Ebola epidemic that Americans might do well to pay attention to.
The informative song outlines the main methods of avoiding Ebola with such lines as “Don’t touch your friend,” “No kissing,” and “No eating something/It’s dangerous!”
D-12, Shadow and Kuzzy of 2Kings are the creative luminaries behind the track, which came out earlier this year.
The lyrics highlight the plight of those living in countries affected by the highly infectious Ebola virus, or “That thing that in town it quick to kill that me scary-o.”
The musical PSA is vitally important at a time when Americans are struggling with how to cope with the epidemic. It offers dietary advice: “If you like the baboon/I said don’t eat the meat.””If you like the bat-o/Don’t eat the meat.” Leaving no stone unturned, the song also reminds us how the disease is spelled: “E-B-O-L-A.”
