The Power 1000: FGM survivor will rap her message to London's leaders
by Anna Davis
A Senegalese hip hop singer who survived the horror of female genital mutilation will rap to hundreds of London's most influential people about the need to stamp out the barbaric practice.
Sister Fa, who was "cut" at the age of four in a rural Senegalese village, will perform her anti-FGM songs in front of London's leaders and opinion formers at the launch of the Evening Standard's Power 1000: London's Most Infuential in association with Battersea Power Station tomorrow night.
The 32-year-old, whose real name is Fatou Diatta, lives in Germany but regularly returns to Senegal to tour schools and speak to children about FGM, funded by the London-based charity Orchid Project.
