Mollywop

There’s a food security activist in Detroit who’s dedicated his life to ensuring black communities in the city have access to healthy food, and a path to a good quality of life. Malik Yakini is the co-founder of the Detroit Black Community Food Security Network.

But for as much time as Yakini dedicates social issues, he’s also a passionate musician.

His band, Mollywop, performs November 5th at 9pm Northern Lights Lounge. It’s the “Funky Rock and Soul Stomp Party”.

Mollywop recently performed live in WDET’s Studio A.

To hear “Your Lies” and “The Call” by Mollywop, as well as a conversation with Yakini and Detroit Today host Stephen Henderson, click on the audio player above.
