Misicians Fredokiss and Gwamba on Friday took time out to interact with street kids at Agape House of Hope in Blantyre.
Apart from interacting with the street kids and encouraging them not to lose hope as well as go back to school, the musicians also had lunch with the street kids.
Fredokiss said this is an annual event which started last year and that it is organised by Ghetto Shoulder Initiative.
“We started this event last year with the aim of celebrating with the needy especially during this festive season and this year we thought of reaching out to street kids,” said Fredokiss.
He said the festive season was about showing love.
“Last year we spent time with some of the people who were affected by the floods. This year we felt of coming to Agape because this is a centre where street kids spend their time. It’s not that we have money but we thought the little we have we should share,” said Fredokiss.
He said in most cases street kids do not have time to have proper or decent food during this festive season.
Gwamba, who was voted Artist of the Year during the Urban Music Party (UMP) held at BAT ground in November, also decided to be part of the initiative.
“As artists we have a duty to help the needy and so I thought I should join Ghetto Shoulder Initiative to give street kids an early Christmas treat,” he said.
Asked as to whether he would compose a new song during this festive season, the ‘Bola Kusache,’ star, who launched a new album Chako Si Changa, recently said he has got no such plans.
Fredokiss also said he has no plans to release a single for the festive season.
The past years has seen several local musicians composing Christmas songs but this year has been quiet.
During the event, the street kids also showcased their art skills through poetry, singing, drama and dancing.
The street kids hailed Ghetto Shoulder Initiative for taking their time to interact with them during this festive season.
