Fighting Ebola through music: Sierra Leone's Jimmy B and "Ebola 4 Go"

In his music video "Ebola 4 Go", Sierra Leone music star Jimmy Yeanie Bangura, aka "Jimmy B," pays homage to the fight against Ebola.

The outbreak is "the biggest calamity that has befallen Sierra Leone after the war," says Jimmy B, "We need to come together and fight together." [via Awoko and State Department embassy, Freetown]
