Chinese crossover R&B star Ayi Jihu who is also Goodwill ambassador for SISHA anti-human trafficking and slavery organization. Has now joined up with the Friends of Justice and Not Our Bodies Documentary producers David Person and Ms N W Tibbs to present SILENCE HURTS EVERYONE a program that will focus attention on the growing problem of campus rape.
Ayi Jihu will be expected at the inaugural event on September in Alabama. It has been confirmed she will be attending, speaking and visiting victims of Rape after her London Fashion Week show on September the 13th. Ayi who recently finished recording with the Legendary Tito Jackson as well as Grammy Award winning writer Steven Russell Harts is also expected to have various major TV, Radio and media initiatives in the USA as she looks to complete her transition to the North America with a brand new single from her forth coming album ‘The Rebirth’ as well as working on her pre production for her Fearchaser film. Despite her hectic schedule Ayi Jihu has committed herself to the SHE (Silence Hurts Everyone) Campaign and will be visiting several Universities around the USA.
Ayi Jihu already travels the world speaking to Children in schools about Bullying and Cyber bullying. Her Fearchaser character which is not being made into a huge film has already been played by over 25 million kids around the world. Ayi Jihu believes the message of Fearchaser (which is fighting fear) that she speaks to the younger kids about also applies to young adults in the Universities around the world. Speaking on the phone to Global News Ayi jihu said: ‘It is a natural step for me getting involved with SHE. When these terrible things happen to someone fear stops them from speaking out and that silence hurts everyone. Fearchaser is all about gaining control of these types of fears and gaining the courage to do the right things. I have been fighting my fears my whole life and still do. I have also been on the end of sexual harassment and I was very afraid to speak about it. So I feel I can really relate to SHE and what it is about. We have had many revelations in the UK concerning celebrities who have sexually abused others and it has taken years for victims to speak out. That pain, guilt and suffering causes so much hurt for them their families and partners. Silence is not the way forward. I hope that I can help get that message out to as many people as possible not only with the SHE campaign but with my music too.’
Ayi Jihu will join other celebrities and guest at the SHE event such as Milestone Media co-founder Michael Davis, widely known by comic book fans as the creator of titles such as Hardware, Blood Syndicate Icon and Static, the basis for the successful Static Shock animated television series. Also Grammy-nominated producer/songwriter Kelvin Wooten and several other high profile celebrities and guests.
