The show will be spiced with live performances from Piksy, Skeffa Chimoto, Lulu, born Lawrence Kwisa and Diktator, among other activities.

According to organisers, the show aims to respond to various issues surrounding young and sexual reproductive health.

About 14 percent and 22 percent of young women and men respectively have initiated sexual activity by the age of 15, says PSI.

“Most young people at this age are not aware of the options available for them to avoid unintended pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections (STIs),” said PSI in statement.

The show is also aimed at mobilising young people and provide information about sexual and reproductive health to the youth.

“We will also integrate with voluntary medical male circumcision messages to young people,” reads the statement.

According to the statement, PSI has engaged the artists because they are followed by many young people in the country.

“During the free show, family planning services will also be provide for free to all women of reproductive age,” says PSI.

I’d pay a year’s salary rather than be circumcised. Europeans don’t circumcise, South Americans don’t circumcise, Australians and New Zealanders used to circumcise, but stopped, and less than half of North Americans circumcise, so why should Africans circumcise?
