Ghanaian singer and performer Ethel Eshun better known eShun is billed to perform at the highly profiled event this Wednesday 14th November, 2018 at the UN Headquarters, Geneva in Switzerland.
eShun will perform songs like Akyia, I Want, Someone Loves Me among other songs and “I Belong” the song she composed to address the phenomena called “statelessness” and also give a brief speech on the Statelessness issue from the African perspective.
The event will be attended by the High Commissioner Filippo Grandi and a formerly stateless woman Artee who lives in Thailand.
Statelessness is situation where a person is denied of his or her nationality. It is estimated that at least 10 million people are stateless worldwide: they are not considered as nationals by any State under the operation of its law. They often aren’t allowed to go to school, see a doctor, get a job, open a bank account, buy a house or even get married.
eShun is the only African who is performing at this year’s event and she also set to release the official music video for her latest hit song Akyia this November.
