Sudanese child-soldier-turned-rapper Emmanuel Jal admits that he had to tone down the lyrics of his new album, Warchild.
“If I described everything I’ve seen and done, the record would be too harrowing,” the 28-year-old says.
By the age of 8, Jal was fighting in the Sudan People’s Liberation Army, carrying an AK-47 rifle bigger than he was. He escaped the SPLA when a British aid worker smuggled him into Kenya and sent him to school.
Warchild is Jal’s third album but his international solo debut.
