Jita Jita by Fresh Emir

Nigeria

What do you know about fake news? Have you ever thought about the disruptive consequences fake news can have? 

Political tensions, social grievances, violence and local conflicts can be instigated by the spread of disinformation and fake news. Even though fake news is often spread in cyberspace, the negative impact it can have on our physical world is massive.

Check out the song “Jita Jita” by Fresh Emir done in collaboration with ARDA Development Communications Inc. for the Community Initiatives to Promote Peace project. This song is a good reminder to always check news before sharing it and to do the right thing!
