Nigerian musicians D’Unicorns have released “Light Up,” an LGBTIQ+ Pride theme song that marked this year’s Pride celebrations.

The afro-pop song is an upbeat inspirational song recorded by D’Unicorns – a group of LGBTIQ+-led Nigerian musicians whose aim is to “use music as a source of therapy and a tool for advocacy for the queer liberation movement in Nigeria and across West Africa.”
The song was produced by LIFFE Music – a recently launched social enterprise initiative by Levites Initiative for Freedom & Enlightenment (LIFFE) as part of its mission to provide a platform for queer Nigerian musicians to pursue their music careers.
Last year, the organization launched Queer Voice Nigeria, a music talent hunt through which three artists were selected, groomed, and supported to release their debut singles under its music label.
