Reggae artiste, Earth Warrior, is calling for an end to human trafficking on his latest single titled Time To Act featuring Winston McAnuff.
“Human trafficking is a very terrible crime against humanity; I mean how can anyone think it’s right to deal in the transportation and selling of other human beings? This is modern day slavery, and it’s happening all over the world, even in our very backyards right here in Jamaica,” said Earth Warrior.
Time To Act was produced by Darren Hamilton and The Uprising Roots Band and features veteran roots singer Winston McAnuff who shares Earth Warrior’s passion and anguish that human trafficking exists in Jamaica.
Ultimately, Earth Warrior believes it will take more than law enforcement to stem the exploitation of vulnerable children.
“We must look into ourselves, into the depth of our souls. We must become something we have not been and for which our education, experience and environment have ill-prepared us,” he reasoned. “We must become bigger than we have ever been.”
Time To Act’s strident message is bolstered by a gripping video that portrays Earth Warrior and McAnuff in some of the gritty surroundings that many children susceptible to human trafficking, find themselves.
The single and the video is slated to be released before the end of September.
Earth Warrior, whose real name is Dino Pinnock, is known for message laced songs such as Happy Song and In The City. He is a longtime collaborator with The Uprising Roots Band.
