Billi Now Now! is all about youth. It’s bold, brave, and revolutionary – young voices telling their stories, talking about their issues and speaking on what matters to them.
Droit sur la Piste! (Straight on Track!) French-language music and radio drama encourages young people, and their allies, to think about, start conversations and act to advance youth sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR). This pan-African collaboration of creatives brings you music for the mind and the soul, and creatively tells real, relevant stories through drama.
Produced by CMFD Productions for the Billi Now Now! initiative for distribution in Francophone West Africa.
