I didn’t need the audio on when this video autoplayed on my facebook feed to tell that it was Wannabe by the Spice Girls. That’s one hell of a blast from the past! But now, this song has been revived to publicize an international campaign.
If you think about it, the original song wasn’t very specific about what the Spice Girls really really wanted. After repeating over and over again “I’ll tell you what I want what I really really want” the best they could come up with to answer that questions is “a zigazig ah”. In this campaign, they get down to the deets.
- Quality Education for Girls
- End Child Marriage
- Equal Pay for Equal Work
- More Women in Leadership
- Gender Equality
So that’s what “zigazig ah” meant all along. Who knew?
All kidding aside, I’m liking this movement.
