Reggae artiste, Mojo Morgan, has teamed up with Nigerian mayor and musician, C-Strokes, on a remix single titled 'It's All About You', which is the lead song on the African's upcoming album, 'Reality (Love & Life)', to be used as an aid to a major charity venture.

C-Strokes' real name is Chimbiko Iche Akarolo and is mayor of Port Harcourt, Nigeria's third-largest city. He is using music as his main driving force to aid a charity foundation, which emerged from a tragedy resulting in the death of his wife of seven years, about 24 hours after giving birth.

The terrible incident took place only three months after he assumed office, but like a phoenix, C-Strokes has risen through the ashes using both the music and the tragedy as the bridge between politics said philanthropy.

The charity, named the Caroline Akarolo Foundation, is set up to support pregnant women and childcare, with emphasis on malaria. And since music is a universal language, C-Strokes, with support of Heritage Grown Productions, which is headed by Mojo Morgan, one of the sons in the royal reggae family, Morgan Heritage, hopes to make a huge impact on the lives of many African women.

Mojo Morgan and C-Strokes met on the former's musical journey in Nigeria, recently. The two bonded through music, which led to Mojo hearing about the latter's sad tale of events.

It touched the prolific reggae singer who, through his love for music and philanthropy, decided to add his voice, talent, heart and compassion to a worthy cause.

"This was something that was very touching, and I am very proud to be a part of the movement," said Mojo Morgan in a recent press release.
