Tresor named UN ambassador


Multi Award winning, #TheBeautifulMadness singer, songwriter and music producer TRESOR, once an undocumented refugee who traveled through Rwanda, Burundi, Tanzania, Malawi and Mozambique en route to South Africa has been announced as an ambassador for the United Nations.

TRESOR joins powerhouse global humanitarian personalities such as the likes of Angelina Jolie, Cate Blanchett, Emma Watson, Priyanka Chopra, Anne Hathaway, Leonardo Dicaprio, Victoria Beckham, Katy Perry and Serena Williams as a UNAmbassador.

Having been a refugee myself for so many years, I truly understand the struggle for simple basic life needs. To have organisations like the UNHCR on the continent is truly a blessing. I’m honoured that they have identified me as a suitable voice to advocate for refugees on the continent and I look forward to playing a role that can positively affect the lives of refugees. – TRESOR
