Kids across the country are heading back to school for the fall, but not all of them will be having fun and making new friends.
Bullying in the learning environment remains an issue for many children, and Khari Toure just couldn’t stand to see his daughter, Nia, become yet another victim.
“As a result, I decided to create a song about the importance of self-love: an anthem with positive affirmations that children could recite daily,” the Oakland based hip-hop artist shared on YouTube.
The video for “Love Yourself” opens with Toure consoling his daughter as they walk out of her school. The song plays out as a conversation between Nia and her loving father.
Toure also invited local special needs children for the video after learning from a friend how frequent they are targeted for bullying.
The song preaches confidence and loving who you are regardless of what others may say to hurt you.
Toure has received praise from both teachers and parents, according to his Facebook page.Read More »from Father responds to young daughter’s plight with anti-bullying hip-hop anthem
