Single Description

Growing up in Nigeria, BEN OKAFOR was caught up in the middle of a conflict and became a child soldier in the Biafran War and his childhood experiences have coloured and driven his artistic journey ever since. Settling in the UK in the early 80s Ben’s work as a song writer, musician, singer, poet, actor and activist has all been based around human rights, fairness, equality, peace, love and the human condition.

Having taken a break from recording new music for a while, allowing him time to run his Amaka Beautiful Child charity amongst other things, Ben is back with some new music – but this time he is not alone, he’s brought his band of friends THE LIBERATORS with him! “Beware of the Snake” is his first official release from the highly anticipated forthcoming album “Politic Yo-Yo”. This powerful debut track that ruthlessly exposes what happens when we hunger for power above all else, and the casualties that our so called ‘success’ produces.

“Beware of the Snake”carries the message that when we hunger after power, we pay very little respect to anything else around us.  As Ben explains, “The line Slithering silver through moonlit night will show you the way to bright light”expresses the reality that however we may try to light the path to power, we find that the thing that shows you that place, that drives you, is actually packed full of venom. The venom shows itself in the casualties of your success.
