Speaking about the importance of bringing those from the outside in and to take out the messages of the UN, the Deputy Secretary-General, Amina Mohammed said, “artists for the Sustainable Development Goals are influencers and you know today, one message from an artist like Burna Boy who gets to people's hearts, who changes minds, who speaks to social injustice is important for the goals.
