VUYO observes hostility between humans based upon their respective skin color, social-economic status or gender
VUYO observes hostility between humans based upon their respective skin color, social-economic status or gender and inspires outrospective ‘Window’. Ole “VUYO” Småge was born in Zimbabwe and raised across South Africa, Zambia, and Norway, and with a father heavily involved with Nelson Mandela’s anti-apartheid movement and mother deeply invested in the Namibian Liberation, their family received recurrent death-threats. Consequently, Ole and his mother left for Oslo where he lived out his teenage years.
“As I wrote the song, I spent hours just looking outside at the street right across from our apartment. There, I could see the way people would treat beggars differently based on the color of their skin, how men on their way home from the club would treat women, and the general carelessness we show to our fellow humans on the street.”
