Have you ever thought of collaborating with those vulnerable artists who perform in the streets for a living? Or doing any project with them?
If you are not the type then watch out for one youthful artist Mc Luther Mambala who has announced a date with an acoustic street performer Peterson Sumbulelo, a blind artist who plies his trade in Blantyre.
For a long time, Sumbulelo has been spotted performing music for a living around Chayamba or Nandos Building in Blantyre, alongside his children. But when Mambala encountered him, an innovation was hatched.
“I have been seeing this man sitting on the ground floor of Chayamba for a long time. But a chat with him has made me think of a day when I would to perform with him and others,” said Mambala.
He has since set June 23 as the day he will perform alongside Sumbulelo.
“I want to perform with this talented artist with a full band. I am also looking at the possibility of helping him record an album to ensure that he sells it while performing in the streets,” said Mambala.
He urged fellow gospel artists to join him on his cause, saying it is aimed at uplifting lives of vulnerable street performers.
“I will give an open mic for every artist to do a free style on the day and help Sumbulelo raise some money. As a father, his children do not only need food to eat but also go to school,” said Mambala.
Sumbulelo is a blind gospel artist whose mission is to spread the word of God and make a living from his career.n
