Award-winning Malawian rapper Pop Dogg has announced a charity event in London which seeks to raise funds towards the education of underprivileged students in Malawi.
The event is slated for April 30 at Hilton Dartford Bridge Hotel in London where well-wishers from United Kingdom (UK) have pledged to support the Ireland-based musician.
“I believe that as an artist, I have an obligation to help my country lessen the suffering of people by contributing to their education; hence, I am looking forward to perform at this event because I believe that together we can educate the less privileged Malawians,” said Pop Dogg.
This is not the first time for Pop Dogg to take part in charity.
He has raised money for the United Nations’ (UN), Agape Orphanage Care Centre in Lilongwe and Likulezi HIV and Aids Project in his home district of Phalombe.
Pop Dogg’s passion for charity work and inspirational music are inspired by his difficult childhood, he said.
“I have been through thick and thin to be where I am today. So, I know what it means when someone wants to achieve something without a shoulder to lean on, “ said Pop Dogg.
In 2013, the rapper famous for the track The Way We Do It which features Third Eye, Dominant 1 and Casper, won a Power-list Award, an African Leadership Excellence Award, designed to honour artists for recognition of excellent performance especially for individuals and organisations that have contributed immensely to the advancement of the developmental sector of Ireland and Africa.
Last year, Pop Dogg also headlined Dare To Dream, Dare To Fly event in London.
This year’s Fundraising Dinner Ball will provide a sizzling three course meal and live music performances.
Pop Dogg is a songwriter, producer, founder and president of his own record label in Ireland called Malawian Ninjaz Records. n
