Kahlil Joins The Fight Against Rape in Jamaica
With the month of May recognized as “Child Month” a period in which Jamaicans advocate the welfare of our children, fast rising male quartet Kahlil has decided to play their part by highlighting issues such as rape and sexual abuse in a new song entitled “Unjust Behavior”.
The song which was produced by the groups lead singer and writer Que of Da Wiz Records boldly denounce the vast amount of rape cases against women and children in Jamaica. “Basically I know a lot of women that has been through that dilemma and its hard to listen to some of the stories you hear so I decided as a recording artist and a producer to play my part in raising awareness”. stated Que
While this is not the first time members of the entertainment fraternity have come forward to denounce crimes against women and children Kahlil hopes “Unjust Behavior” will find a place in the hearts of Jamaicans. “We believe this song speaks about the destructive impact of rape on a society in a real way. We would like to see it become an anthem that can both touch the heart of a victim and offer comfort or change the mind of an individual who is about to commit the act”.
Having secured a commitment for the production of a video Que lamented the long term nature of the project. “Right now we are gearing up to really start pushing the song out and our good friend Chris “Icey Jace” Campbell who is a video director has come on board to help spread the message to make a lasting impact on society and evoke some kind of change at the constitutional level”.
In recent months there has been several public outcry against cases of rape and sexual abuse the most chilling of which was a report from Dr. Sandra Knight of the Bustamante Hospital for Children that stated children as young as four years old have been treated for Gonorrhoea, Syphillis, Herpes and HIV.
In other news Kahlil is currently working on tracks for their upcoming album which is slated to be released later this year. In 2011 the group reemerged on the local scene with the hit single “Your Gonna Be Sorry” which went on to top several reggae charts both locally and internationally.
