"I AM AN AFRICAN BECAUSE MY SPIRIT CRIES FOR THE SOIL" exalts Don Dada.

The Original name for Africa is Alkebulan: Arabic for " The Land Of The Blacks"

ALKEBULAN is the oldest and the only name of indigenous origin. It was used by the Moors, Nubians, Numidians, Khart-Haddans (Carthaginians), and Ethiopians. Africa, the current name adopted by almost everyone today, was given to this continent by a European invader by the name of Louis Africanus. Like all methods of manipulation, the Romans sought to completely disconnect the indigenous Africans from their culture, deities, and knowledge.

The delivery of ALKEBULAN is a phenomenal physical interpretation of the power of Africans coming together at home and abroad, to deliver a common purpose. To achieve the outcome this project was coordinated across continents and countries.  Don Dada partnering with Leroy Scarlett of Reggae PowerHouse Band (Jamaican) as the producer of seven of the eight tracks. The eighth track, “Here We Go Again” is produced by Zimbabwean Gerald "Fashalz" Mushaike.
