Some former child soldiers in Africa are taking their experiences and turning them into rap songs.

The five ex-child soldiers who met at a UNICEF supported transit centre in Bukavu, the Democratic Republic of Congo formed a hip hop group called 'The Flavour Boyz”.

The boys, along with others, were captured or freed by government forces from a myriad of different militia wreaking havoc across the region.
