2014 Search for A Star now E-Wallet winner McLuther Mambala will today alongside other artists perform at Nando’s in Blantyre to raise funds for a visually impaired musician Peterson Sumbulelo.
Sumbulelo used to play a harp on the corridors of Chayamba Building but now sits at Nando’s.
Through his talent which started with playing an old harp before he graduated to a guitar gets some money from passersby, especially from those who are touched by his gospel songs.
Sumbulelo has been brightening the corridor of Chayamba Building with his music for years with his sounds where he has been making K2,000 to K3,000 a day.
Every morning except on a Sunday, Sumbulelo has been leaving his home in Namiyango for Chayamba Building.
He made Chayamba his workplace where he used his talent to sing for people using his old harp which was given to him by Janet from England.
He has moved his office further down close to the old Nandos because he was told to move out.
Having been impressed by Sumbulelo’s talent, Mambala who once jammed with him, decided to create another platform to raise funds to assist the musician.
“He has a family but he is struggling, so we thought we should do something, hence putting up this street jam. Apart from music, we will also have spoken word. We have artists like Steve Muliya, Steve Spesho, Annie Matumbi and Chiko Mulera among others joining us,” Mambala said.
He said that he was hoping that more people will make themselves available to support them.
