STOP THE BULLYING ESSAY

STOP THE BULLYING ESSAY

This song came to be in support of my son Obawole, Idowu, who was chosen as an ambassador for Intel’s #HackHarassment campaign. The campaign focuses on ending Online bullying and also to increase diversity in the tech industry. We did this song at a Hackathon and created a subsequent Hackathon for students to add their voice to the issue of Online harassment.

My approach with this song, however, was to widen the scope and also deal with the problem of workplace bullying, religious intolerance, sexual prejudice, bigotry, and racism. As I have mentioned before humans genetically share over 99% similarity genetically and we have less than a 1% variance in our species. Our differences shouldn’t divide us it should be exciting to discover each other and appreciate our differences.

I chose a more straight forward approach with my rhymes, and I also wrote a melody and bridge for Abby Adams, a music student at Carnegie Mellon University to sing. Abby is an incredibly gifted musician who also played violin on the project, and I was pleasantly suppressed to see she could sing. This song is special to me as it reflects my core ideology.
