According to Fuse, he did not agree with the message of the song and even though Bob Geldolf gave him the freedom to change the lyrics, he insisted the message of the song did not sit well with his This is New Africa (TINA) movement—meant to showcase thebest part of today’s Africa.  Speaking to the BBC, Geldolf mentioned that Fuse refused to be on the track because he said  he ‘felt awkward”.

Geldof added; “His thing was you had to be positive about Africa, but then you have Angelique Kidjo and Emeli Sande who were on the same attitude and I said there’s theworld’s press, tell them about your point of view.If there’s a line you can’t sing, change it and he said he just felt awkward.”

In related news, Bob Geldof who is famous for telling TV viewers in 1985 to “give us your f**king money” was today taken off Sky news for saying the word “bollocks” twice.
