If you have ever doubted the creative prowess and musical passion of Patoranking, Heal the world will cure your scepticism. It’s been a long while since I listened to a soul music from a reggae/dancehall artiste, this song brought me back to reality. In the space of 4 minutes, I was reminded of the world we used to live in, confronted with the reality of the world we live in, and time travelled to a world where everything could be better; if we could just spread love and heal humanity.
This music is a message of salvation to religious leaders, politicians, world leaders and youths all over; to embrace love and be responsible for one another. It is a detailed revelation of the world’s problem, home, and in the diaspora. With a visual that combines emotion with creativity, it portrays the importance of togetherness. It is a soul lifting protest against the ills of the society and dehumanisation. Religious leaders should preach this in church, practically. We all should do more, for one another.
Pato has done it again, he has given us something to wake up to, ponder on, and sleep over. Spread love and heal the world.
“Love is not the absence of hate, it is the understanding of peace, even in chaos.”
