Ka Jive Dance competition Season Four continued on Saturday with the third elimination show at Times Entertainment Studios in Blantyre with messages of ‘No to rape’, dominating proceedings.
While Ka Jive competition—which Times Group spearheads through Times Television—is all about unearthing talent, organisers decided to utilise the platform to sensitise people to dangers of gender-based violence.
Host of the show Blak Jak advised the youthful audience to refrain from deplorable behaviour throughout the door.
Coincidentally, one of the crews—Soweto Boys— showcased a creative story-telling dance routine, in which they portrayed a girl being subjected to rape and was later saved.
The group then ended their performance with placards that had messages, all calling for an end to rape and defilement in the country.
Furthermore, musician Bucci— who was the guest artist and performed myriad songs including his recently released single ‘Golide’— came to the stage with boys and girls carrying placards that called for an end to rape.
Bucci, who has collaborated with a number of artists, said the gesture was inspired by recent events in the country.
“I incorporated a special message on rape during my performance. I am against defilement and rape.
“I am one of the members of Voice of the Child Malawi. I, therefore, against rape and defilement,” Bucci said.
Ka Jive Dance competition Season Four grand finale will be held on December 19 2020, with the winner walking away with K1 million.
The runnerup and group in third position will get K400,000 and K150,000, respectively.
