Emmanuel is a Sudanese Rap artist from Kenya/London. The award-film War Child is based on his life.
Emmanuel became a child soldier at about the age of 7, and at the age of 11 was rescued by a British aid worker, who smuggled him out of Sudan and into Kenya. While studying in Kenya, he chose to help others, becoming active in the community, and helping to raise money for street children and refugees.
Jal believes in using music and celebrity status to make a positive difference, particularly in the lives of children. He is a spokesman for Make Poverty History, the Coalition to Stop the Use of Child Soldiers and the Control Arms campaign. He founded Gua Africa, and is planning to build a school in southern Sudan.
