In support of the song “Shadows After Dark,” released on November 27th, 2020, VP Records, the International Reggae Poster Contest and the Jamaican Ministry of National Security have partnered to raise awareness of Human Trafficking through visual art.
The song encourages all of us to be careful about who we trust. Produced by Reggae star Alborosie, and featuring performances by Christopher Martin, Romain Virgo, Dean Fraser, Duane Stephenson, Kabaka Pyramid, Etana, Tarrus Riley, Kumar, Morgan Heritage, Raging Fyah and Sandy Smith, the song is designed to attract a global audience. About the Shadows After Dark – International Poster Competition Alborosie says, “Visual art and sonic art are powerful together. Working together means we can save one more child or one more person from harm and that is good.” Maria Papaefstathiou, International Reggae Poster Contest co-founder, says, “There are steps that all of us can take towards ending human trafficking. We, the designers, begin by using art to educate and spread awareness of the issue. I believe in a future where no one falls victim to human trafficking.”
The International Reggae Poster Contest, VP Records and several Reggae artists are all collaborating, for the first time, on the global issue of human trafficking.
