The youth from Dharavi have a creative way to urge people to wear masks and #stayathome

Fear, anxiety and tensions have run high throughout the lockdown phases in densely populated areas. With significant risks of the rapid spread of the coronavirus, young rap musicians who have emerged from the belly of Dharavi, have collaborated to create a unique trilingual rap anthem.

Using music as a powerful means to educate and unite their community, the upbeat anthem, with lyrics in Hindi, Marathi and Tamil, serves as a clarion call for residents to cooperate in efforts to curb the spread of the deadly virus by staying home, wearing masks and getting timely tests.

Directed by Joel D’Souza and written, composed and performed by Mc Altaf, Tony Psyko (Dopeadelicz) and Bonz N Ribz (7 Bantaiz), popular rapper Divine joins in the young stars in the music video which also features popular Bollywood, Tollywood and Marathi cinema stars such as Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar, Atul Kulkarni, Dia Mirza, Rana Daggubati and Suniel Shetty, lending their voice to the cause.
