“Ben Okafor is the kind of counter-culture renaissance man that denies lazy pigeonholing. Call him a reggae musician, an actor or a political activist and you just won’t catch the whole creative sweep of this passionate, articulate communicator and musician.” – Tony Cummings

Why Strike a Light?: Around the world, millions of children are imprisoned by lies and harmful beliefs. Countless children face discrimination because of their disability and the false belief they are worthless, second-class. Countless other children are accused of being witches because of the false belief that children are possessed by evil spirits and are to blame for family misfortunes.
BCT will not stand by and watch as children fall victim to these lies.

As part of the Strike a Light initiative, our Strike a Light event seeks to expose the harmful beliefs that keep children living in darkness, and to mobilise a response, to make a difference to children who are suffering.

March 2009

March 4, 2009 — Ben is performing at the the Global Student Forum 2009 in London.

DIVERTED TRAFFIC
Ben’s new album, ‘DIVERTED TRAFFIC’ is complete!!!  It will be the first release through Ben’s own ROADSWEEPER RECORDS Label.

WORK BEGINS ON THE NEXT ALBUM

Ben¹s old friend Harvey Jones, producer of Ben¹s “Coffee With Lazarus” album, flew in from New York to spend a few weeks working with Ben in his new Malvern studio (where “Acoustic Close-Up” was recorded) laying down some basic track frameworks for his next album. Provisionally entitled “Diverted Traffic” the plan is for the album to be released in 2007, but no date has been finalized.  You¹ve still got plenty of time to explore all of Ben¹s other great CDs
