So, They DO Know!

"‘Yes we know it’s Christmas’ say African musicians as they finally record a response to Band Aid"

I share Chris Blattman's disappointment that this story is not real; and I thank him for the pointer:
Speaking at the launch of the single, whose proceeds will go towards teaching discipline, literacy and contraception at British schools, composer and singer Boomtown Gundane said that for years he had been irked by Geldof's assumption that hungry Africans were also stupid.

"Or was he just saying that Africans were stupid? Of course we knew it was Christmas."
