Afro gospel music prodigy Patience Namadingo has said his Namadingo Foundation will focus on education of vulnerable youth in the country.
The artist of the moment who launched the Namadingo Foundation at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital (QECH) in Blantyre no Saturday said his foundation wants to complement government’s efforts in promoting education.
He said the foundation will be identifying needs students and be helping them continue with their studies.
“I realise school is the key to one’s future prospects therefore I want to contribute in the transformation of my fellow citizens lives,” he said.
Namadingo celebrated the launch of his foundation by cheering the sick, alongside his manager Tonderai Banda, by donating assorted items to patients at QECH.
The Sindinjenemela artist said t an educated population is a capital which can turn around Malawi’s fortunes.
“Malawi continues to be poor due to a small educated population which can contribute to the development process through innovations and entreprenurship ventures,” he said.
Namdingo said apart from directly financing education of bright needy students, his foundation will fund small initiatives by community-based organisations and individuals that seek to promote the education of vulnerable groups.
Marking the launch of the foundation was a donation of assorted items to patients at QECH’s Ward 6A.
Namadingo is a music prodigy par-excellence who has added a new twist to Malawi music; and listening to his recent compositions, Msati Mseke and Macheza, songs which boast a multipartite of gule wamkulu, sarcasm and pleasantry suffused with the good news.
And Sindinjenjemela is best work of art by Namadingo.
Malawi’s music icon Lucius Banda thinks Patience Namadingo is a game changer on the Malawian music landscape, saying his flair, clever lyrical compositions and style of music—which is fused between two genres—will take him far.
Musicians Union of Malawi (MUM) president and one of the country’s legendary contemporary Afro-gospel musicians Chimwemwe Mhango described Namadingo as a trendsetter whose new thinking in music is a game changer on the scene.
“Yes, Namadingo’s music is distinctively gospel music in every sense. He is using a technic of making all traditions realise that they can do better if they take God as their king,” affirms Mhango.
Namadingo voice is pure and awe-inspiring—a touch of class and a perfect gift to the ear.
