The single features Senegalese rappers Drygun, Beydi, Djiby Daddy, Thiat, Keyti and Books, and was organised by rapper and producer Simon Bibsiclan.
Said Bibsiclan of the project: " 100 Culprits" pays tribute to innocent people who lost their lives and for whom justice is still not done. We fight against this system because there is nothing worse than injustice.
« 100 COUPABLES rend hommage aux innocents qui ont perdu la vie et pour qui justice n’est pas faite jusqu’à présent. On se bat contre ce système parce qu’il n’ ya pas pire que l’injustice. »amnesty.sn
Amnesty International has promoted the video on its Facebook page, alongside other messages to Sall.
The page followed the post with a list of Senegalese killed under Wade's presidency whose cases are still open:

that Amnesty is doing well to collaborate with the group. Y'en A Marre is known for their previous political mobilisation in the west-African nation; they
claim to have rallied
roughly 300,000 voters against Wade in the 2012 presidential election.
Amnesty International was wise in its decision to collaborate with the rappers because the music video has been shared widely on multiple social networking outlets while official Amnesty International reports remain the reading of a select audience.africasacountry.com
The human rights organisation hopes to raise both awareness and funds with the new single.
