Lilongwe-based musician Skeffa Chimoto alongside his Real Sounds has this Sunday organised a free concert at Mkomachi Primary School ground in Lilongwe’s area 49 aimed at commemorating his life.
Chimoto survived a car accident on December 27 2010 at Sharp Valley in Ntcheu. Therefore, he set December 27 as a special day to commemorate his life.
He said: “December 27 is the day I set aside to hold a free concert as a way of celebrating God’s love and mercy upon my life for He saved me from death and continues to do so. So, I thought it wise to be joining my family, friends and fans through a free music show every year to celebrate my life.”
He described the annual event as thanking-giving to God, family members, friends and his fans for their unconditional love during his trying moment.
Chimoto will be supported by Alleluya Band, among other artists.
The artist, who is also an ambassador for youths, said the commemoration has been designed in two phases: motivation talk and live performance.
He said: “In the morning I will have a motivational talk session with youths and the afternoon session will be dedicated to music performances. My address will border around HIV/Aids and education to raise awareness on the two.”
He added that as a role model he had a responsibility to direct young people to make informed choices in their lives.
Said Chimoto: “It is through our collective efforts that can young people productive citizens of this country. Therefore, influential persons should take a lead to motivating them.” n
