In a timely response to the global call for the release of the abducted Chibok girls and the restoration of peace in Nigeria, galaxy of stars under the umbrella of 2face Idibia's Million Voices for Peace (MVP) project have recorded a song to articulate their call for peace and unity and raise funds to support the work of the Nigerian Red Cross.

MVP on this song features 2face Idibia, Precision Productions (Trinidad  Tobago), Samini (Ghana), K-Slim, PKD, Squadee (Ghana), Spyke, Sound Sultan, Essence, Righteousman, Jo El, Ferre Galo (DRC) and Machel Montano (Trinidad & Tobago).

Idibia, speaking from France stated thus: "The call for the safe return of the Chibok Girls and real work towards peace building must be sustained. This is just another step in the journey towards the promotion of peace and unity in our nation and the world."

According to Efe Omorogbe of Now Muzik/Hypertek Digital/960 MG, coordinator of the project, this is coming at a very crucial time when the reality of the situation has hit everyone really hard. This wonderful group of patriots, supported by their brothers from the sub continent and the Caribbean have done one better than tweet and shout. We believe the message will reach the people and that proceeds from sale will help the work of the Red Cross. We also intend to help mobilize volunteers to turn up and assist the Red Cross and NEMA in their humanitarian efforts.

We sincerely thank the artistes for their contribution and also acknowledge the invaluable support Mamadie Kobele Keita, Winnie Kigara, Kasey Phillips, Keke Ogungbe, Pamela Braid, Leslie Quaynor, Sola Animashaun, Emma Eboigbe, Justin Ukaegbu and the team at Now Muzik, Hypertek Digital/960 Music Group and the 2face Idibia Reach-Out Foundation.
