Dreams Alive (Kectil Dreams) by Ajauwa Ifedayo fadairo

We are so proud to announce our Kectil Theme Song, which is the brainchild of Ajauwa Ifedayo Fadairo of Akure, Nigeria. Ajauwa started singing at a very early age in the choir, and has always had a drive and passion for music, specifically to use it as a tool for enlightenment and awareness. Ajauwa tells us that the proposed theme song was inspired by our Kectil Program. He thought of composing a theme song that youth all over the world can relate to as a means of inspiration to achieving our dreams and to network with each other, using the multi-cultural Kectil Program as our platform. The song was composed within two weeks at home, the female back-up was done by his two sisters Ajauwa Monisola Fadairo and Ajauwa Funmilola Fadairo, and the male back-up was done by his cousin Adeyoyenu Oluwasegun.

The song was produced in live production at the Sophia Studios, Akure Nigeria, organized by Ajauwa. The studio instrumentalists were added to do justice to the song, using keyboard, guitar and drum.

Let’s give a shout-out to all of the performers:

In 2019, Kectil launched an initiative called “1000 Males Campaign” on its website. We challenged males to stand up to a large leadership role to protect females in their societies.

We successfully met the goal with 1000 Male Pledges from more than 72 countries in the world! That is a big milestone for us, and we are so proud to receive messages from Promise Keepers saying how they have been keeping their promises after pledging a year ago.

We publicly honor those males who participated and acted as they promised! We have set a new goal where those who have already pledged can promise again while still inviting others to join!
