Rapping about the realities of migrant life

Published on : 17 February 2013 - 5:00am | By RNW Africa Desk (Screenshot: Surprising Europe)
More about:

This fourth clip from the Surprising Europe video series introduces us to Scor.pi.o, a Cameroonian musician. His rap video cautions fellow Africans that moving to Europe won't necessarily make life any easier. And he would know  he spent a decade living undocumented in the Netherlands. Today Christian Nana, as the rapper is also known, heads Project Nana, a Dutch foundation that helps young people produce their own music.

Stay tuned to our weekly video broadcasts of Surprising Europe, in which we meet Africans from across the continent who have migrated to Europe. In episode 5, we follow Ugandan journalist Ssuna on his search for a place to lay his head.
