Fair Play logo

The impact of corruption on our communities cannot be accurately conveyed in numbers or reports. To understand how it affects the lives of people, we must listen to their voices.

Fair Play is a global competition for original songs by young bands (18-35 years) on the theme of anti-corruption. The top 3 winning bands are invited to join us at the upcoming 17th IACC in Panama City, to perform their songs that fight for social justice.

We are excited to release the top 3 songs, huge congratulations to the artists and thank you to all who participated.

‘Bonkey’ is a term in Liberian pidgin English for a corrupt individual. This video shows several scenes of struggling, everyday Liberian citizens who are adversely impacted by corruption in society.
The song and video vividly show the pain that society collectively feels as a result of corruption and is a call to action for reform and transparency at all levels.
