Rapper of the moment Fredokiss aka Ghetto King King has fired warning shots for his Lilongwe free show to take place at Masintha Ground in Kawale Township on October 14.
Aimed at giving back to the society and interacting with his fans, the Lilongwe event is a continuation of Fredokiss’s national tour under his Ghetto Gutter Family (GGF).
The tour was launched on a high note in Southern region in Ndirande Township where a record-beating crowd was in attendance.
“Preparations for the Lilongwe show are underway and we are confident that we will pull a larger crowd as well. Ghetto Gutter Family is a team no sleep which working on the ground to accomplish the national tour with enviable margins,” said Fredokiss, who is also tenderly called Fredo and Ntchana.
He said, initially, his idea of the free show received mixed reactions with some quarters, including potential sponsors, doubting its integrity.
“It was until the inaugural show attracted multitudes of people in Ndirande when companies realised the need to support local talent. But surprises are yet to come to prove our potential,” said Fredokiss.
He added that the national tour nicknamed Ghetto King King, on the other hand, seeks to motivate young people in different spheres of their life.
“Apart from taking free entertainment to the Ghetto youths, we want to encourage them to work hard in education and their business for them to create a better refuge for themselves,” said Fredokiss whose real name is Penjani Kalua.
He observed that majority of young people in Malawi are not educated, a development which minimizes their economic opportunities to make their ends meet.
“It is against this background that the national tour seeks to serve as business platform for young entrepreneurs in the country,” he said.
Apart from music, Fredokiss is also running a scholarship fund which has managed to keep over 10 vulnerable young people in school.
“To me, it’s not a matter of always questioning government what it is doing about the youth but proving that we the youth can turn ourselves into agents of change. Young people in Malawi have brilliant ideas which only need a conducive environment to be executed,” said the Dear Jah Jah hit maker.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
