Using the melody of rappers T-Pain and Wiz Khalifa‘s “5 O’Clock”, Watoto Of The Nile have taken on the tragic case of Trayvon Martin. The chorus of “Warning” reads -
“Watoto’s here with a warning. Right now our nation’s in mourning. We hope that justice prevails soon. The Martin family, we’re with you. We come together, we must care.
