On a le temps pour nous

In October 2014, the revolt of the “Balai citoyen” led to the dismissal of the Burkinabé dictator Blaise Compaoré. Rapper Serge Bambara, known as Smockey, was among the insurgents. He is now considered to be one of the architects of this political change. On a le temps pour nous immerses us in the daily life of this iconic rapper.
