Over the years, Lion Story have become a veritable megaphone for the people of Burundi. Loved by their fans and hated by the authorities, the group uses reggae to loudly say what many others hush up.
The musicians have spent time in prison and been censored for creating songs addressing corruption, freedom of expression and human rights.
In this video edition of My Song, group member Paul-Bienvenue Niyonzima talks about 'Izangondangode', one of their most well-known tracks and whose name means "the fake trials" in Kirundi. About its inspiration, he says: "I've been the victim of injustice ever since I was young. I've seen others experiencing injustice, and I continue to see injustice."
My Song showcases the personal stories behind the songs of Africa's most compelling musicians. You'll hear these musicians in their own words. No presenter, no interviewer - nothing to get in the way. Just African voices on African music.
