New Living Gospel Church’s Neligo Women Choir, whose members don school uniform when performing, will on April 23 launch its second DVD, Ndioloke, at Robin’s Park in Blantyre.
The choral group, based in the city’s Ndirande Township, promotes girl-child education by paying school fees for underprivileged girls and encourage them not to drop out of school.
In an interview, choir treasurer Pastor Triza Gunde said they will be supported by various gospel artists and groups such as Ndirande Anglican Voices, Prophets of Vision (POV), Llyod Phiri and Favoured Martha.
“Ndioloke features such reggae hits as Go Konko and Mbuye Amandikonda among others.” said Pastor Gunde.
She said it is the choir’s vision to have many girls from the grassroots get empowered through education.
“We put on school uniform as one way of motivating schoolgirls by reminding them that before we became mothers, we were also girls.
“Girls should embrace Christ because the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom.” Gunde advised.
The choir became popular with its song Msaona wa ku Yeriko from their first album Mbuye Chikondi Chanu.
