And three out of four by the age of 18. The West African country of Niger (which borders Nigeria) has the highest rate of child marriage in the world. In this new spot in its series to end child marriage, the world's leading children's organisation UNICEF partners with international music producer Moon Boots and vocalist Black Gatsby to raise awareness of the issue. Do you think the 'Power' soundtrack and uplifting visuals get the message across effectively? What might a Nigerien man's reaction be? Poverty, lower education levels and a higher societal value attached to males all contribute to the plight of young girls being married off early. “As an artist, my hope is to create music that can make an impact and help affect change in any way, whether big or small," says Black Gatsby. "I feel so grateful that ‘Power’ has inspired the family at UNICEF to share this important and powerful message, helping us all to be more aware of some of the troubles others are facing around the world."
