Old men who brutally and relentlessly cling to their roles as heads of state have become colossally negative images in many African countries, including Senegal. When President Abdoulaye Wade wanted to run for office yet again, a resistance movement formed on the streets. Shortly thereafter, a group of school friends, including rappers Thiat and Kilifeu, set up "Y'en a marre" (We are Fed Up) to galvanize the youth of the country, and fight for political freedom.
