Q&A with rapper, Thiat, member of the duo Keur Gui and a founding member of Y’en a Marre (Fed Up)

About the Film

In 2012, Senegalese President Abdoulaye Wade began a highly controversial run for a third term, in violation of the nation’s constitution. Among the forces that rose up in protest was a peaceful political movement, Y’en a Marre (literally “we’re fed up”), an alliance of hip-hop artists and journalists. Rama Thiaw shadows rappers Thiat and Kilifeu and their manager Gadiaga as they crisscross Dakar to rock the youth vote.
