Fighting Ebola With Autotune

"Ebola In Town," by Liberian artists 2Kings' Shadow, D-12, and Kuzzy. With illiteracy rates high in West Africa, a simple, memorable song is a most effective means of warning the public about the dangers of the virus and how to avoid it. Reports World.Mic:

"Since everybody wants to dance these days, they will first dance to the beat," musician Samuel "Shadow" Morgan told VOA. "And the next thing is, they will learn the chorus. From the chorus, you start going into the verses and what the song is actually about."


Expect to see a lot of headlines punning on "contagious," "catchy," and "infectious." (Because it is!)

Sample lyric:

If you like the monkey

Don't eat the meat

If you like the baboon

I said don't eat the meat

If you like the bat-o

Don't eat the meat
