Owning up to your privileges is an act of humanity, says Danny K

Shout Foundation trustees and Musos Kabelo Mabalane and Danny K have partnered to bring communities together through 'Worlds Apart or Partners' initiative.

For the Worlds Apart or Partners, the couple spent a year researching ways to teach South Africans to come together.

The two musos' campaign, Shout Foundation, aims to see a safer South Africa for all.

Mabalane explains what led to the foundation.

We found ourselves in the middle of last year where everywhere you went there was a lot of racial tension.

There is a lot of wounds that are still healing and there is a lot of misunderstanding about those wounds and the speed they should heal.

Danny K says they involved academics in setting up the project.

We wanted to use our lives as a backdrop and what we have done right and done wrong to try and help. We are not academics.
