Using a brief Spoken Word piece, Pompi highlights the folly of subjecting all students to the same test.

Pompi, affectionately known as the African Eagle, is a musician who has been active in the Zambian music industry for ten years. Pompi’s music is a mix of RnB and Afrosoul and rap, inspired by Gospel. This popular Zambian artist is aware of the power of music and visited the United States to study how music is used for civil engagement. Pompi has been involved in many activities to encourage young people’s involvement in social matters and shaping the world around them: he participated in the Tomorrow’s Zambia campaign to publicise the Youth Empowerment Fund and the new Kwame Nkrumah University; Pompi also joined nine other global shapers that represented Zambia at the World Economic Forum and engaged in discourse about engaging business, political and academic leaders to shape global, regional and industry agendas.
