Uganda luga flow rapper Jim Nola MC has dropped another hit single titled ‘Not My Crime’ advocating for innocent people serving time in prison.
In this new project, Jim Nola teams up with Envubu Initiative to raise the awareness of the voice of the young children whose parents have been detained.
In the three and a half minutes song, Jim Nola breaks down the pain, emotions as he gets voices of these children to sing out the chorus.
“It is estimated that more than 200,000 children in Uganda have a parent in prison at any one time. Children of prisoners in Uganda have a parent in prison at any one time. Children of prisoners in Uganda and across Africa face many violations of their rights when their parents or primary caregivers are arrested and detained. They are confronted with the trauma of separation but also have to contend with subtle and not so subtle stigma and discrimination because of their parent’s involvement with the criminal justice system. Children living in prison with their mothers often live in intolerable conditions with inadequate access to nutrition, play and education.” Jim said, while introducing the song.
‘Not My Crime’ is a theme song for the ‘Not My Crime’ campaign being championed by the Envubu Initiative and Jim Nola as he tries to amplify the painful voices to the ears of any possible helper.
