Hands Across The World Video – ONE8 w R. Kelly – R. Kelly and his new super group ONE8 have released a music video for their new single “Hands Across The World.”

The ONE8 project which is composed of 2face (Nigeria), 4×4 (Ghana), Alikiba (Tanzania), Amani (Kenya), Fally Ipupa (DR Congo), JK (Zambia), Movaizhaleine (Gabon), Navio (Uganda), R Kelly (USA) will release a DVD and a full album in the upcoming weeks.

Here is what the legendary, “Happy People” singer had to say about working with the Africans music stars:

“I love projects like this . As I hear the music of these artists and meet them in person I can feel myself connect. Somehow I can feel the excitement and adrenaline through them and then the ideas and everything around this track just comes together. This is probably one of the greatest things I have ever done, I can just feel it in me.”

    Big thanks to R. Kelly for coming down to Africa, and featuring African stars, it shows that African stars and their songs are recognized world wide

  4. Nikki says:

    Going to Africa seems to have made a major impact on R. Kelly’s life and his music. He’s been to Africa like 6 times in the past 2 years, and going back again in December.

    real i apreciate all of one8 you seems to touch my mind love you more

  26. education_is_the_key says:

    trully this is a nice song.
    am only skeptik about the name one8, that its nothing to do with the G8, probably trying to prepare our minds again..lol! so that when we hear of a G8 over Africa, we automatically admit to it. its just one of those things am always skeptik about this media nowdays specially that sony music is involded in this project, surely they are one of the G8 companies. apart from that, i love the song, the artists and surely R kelly did a great work.
    I love the title hands across the world, Africa to the world.
    once Africans settled across the world, occupied the world and surely as we all know, its the African civilization that has shaped the world today.
    so this song is part of that tree that the colonial masters did cut a long time ago but they couldnt get rid of the roots so now its stem is starting to grow again..
    shine on Africa

  32. Daluv says:

    It’s ur boy Daluv and i’m representing StreetDisciples(NAIJA).
    For me this One8 project song is the most touching and message sending song that i’ve ever listened to, couple with the fact and pleasure that i have the two most loving hip hop and r’n’b artiste (R.kelly and Tuface) on it. While R. takes the leading role and 2baba hyping Africa and raising the Nigerian flag with his enhancing voice, plus the efforts of 4×4, Alikiba, Amani, Fally Ipupa, J.k, Navio, Movaizhaleine, following the worlds greatest leads, that song is da bomb.
    I get more inspiration when i listen to the song because i rap and sing though i’m underground but upcoming hopefully. So i’ll say that this is the best of both worlds. “Kells and Africa.
    We love you R.kelly, we love you Tuface, we love you Africa… Daluv 4 StreetDisciples.. Peace yoh.
