The track Father of Africa is dedicated to Mandela’s life struggles and ultimate success in establishing democracy. The song puts a modern twist on the story, using DJ Khalid’s hit song I’m the One as the backing track and original rap lyrics.
The group have set a target of providing 6.7 million children with a hot meal for 100 consecutive days after Nelson Mandela Day.
The number represents the 67 years Mandela spent campaigning for equal human rights across South Africa.
Gerschweyn Matthews, one of the team behind the track, emphasised the importance of making fund-raising relevant and exciting so the public engage with the movement.
