A popular recording artist in his home country, Kanga, was forced to leave after producing the song ‘El Mutino’ that was critical of the country’s leaders following a military coup. The big-hearted singer has decided to donate10% of the royalties from the song ‘Give It To Me’ to the Whitechapel Centre, to support its work with rough sleepers.
