According to a release by Gwamba, fans will be asked to WhatsApp a number that will be provided, sending a message written ‘Kutsatsa Mau.
Immidiately, his team will respond by sending a song then the fans will be required to forward the song to ten contacts/groups and send back screenshots as proof to get the K1,000 airtime, whether TNM or Airtel depending their choice.
“We just want to do things differently now and make sure that we deliver the song directly to people’s phones and a thank you token of K1,000 airtime for the support,” explained Kelvin Sulugwe, Gwamba’s who will manage the project.
According to Sulugwe, the are expected to reach out to 40 thousand whatsapp users within an hour when the project starts.
“Gwamba loves his fans. He is doing what no other artist has done. Its part of his wedding celebration and recognizing the journey he has travelled so far, getting all the support from his followers,” Sulugwe said.
