News:Artistes pen song to raise money for Zimpapers journalists' daughter's liver transplaint
<vote /> As part of efforts to raise $43 000 for baby Manqoba’s liver transplant in India, Bulawayo artistes have come together to pen a song to raise awareness. Nine-month-old Baby Manqoba, the daughter of Zimpapers journalists Lawson Mabhena and Shamiso Yikoniko, was diagnosed with biliary atresia – a liver condition – when she was five months old. Then, surgeons could not perform any corrective surgery because the liver was showing signs of significant damage, leaving them to suggest that she gets a liver transplant.
Khuliyo, one of the artiste’s working on the song, said they would be in studio during the weekend. He said they had come together because of their relationship with Lawson who is a former Sunday News News Editor. Other than Khuliyo, the song features artistes Iyasa, Lady T, Stone, Sgeca, Donna N, Nkwali and Umdumo Wesiwe. Ingwe Studios will facilitate the recording.
Once recorded, the song will be released immediately on WhatsApp, Facebook and Twitter as artistes want it to go viral, even beyond the country’s borders. A hash tag #SaveManqoba has since been created on social media and is trending as people are being encouraged to donate. For those who want to assist save Manqoba, they can get in touch with Shamiso on +263772935224.
