Leading African female musicians have recorded a video of songs and instrumental music, joining a "Poverty is Sexist" campaign to put women and girls at the center of the global drive to eradicate extreme poverty by 2030.

Investing in women and closing the gender gap could reduce hunger, cut maternal and child deaths and boost economies in the world's poorest countries, according to the ONE Campaign, co-founded by Irish rocker Bono to end extreme poverty and disease.

The video, released on Wednesday, features seven musicians from seven African countries, including Kenya's Victoria Kimani, South Africa's Judith Sephuma and Mozambique's Gambela, alongside Nigerian actress Omotola Jalade Ekeinde.
