Brave Heart, the brains behind ‘The Life Changing Concert’, together with the music show’s headline act, Joyous Celebration, have donated P20, 000 to Mogobane Junior School.
The event organiser’s owner, Joe Manuel, accompanied by the South African gospel powerhouse’s founder, Lindelani Mkhize, handed over the cheque last week.
The initiative was part of 33-year-old Manuel’s Community Social Responsibility (CSR).
“It is my way of saying ‘thank you’ to the community that raised me,” explained Brave Heart’s Managing Director (MD).
For his part, Mkhize encouraged the school’s pupils to dream big and reach for the stars.
“You must be grateful that a seed is being planted here today and you must start to believe in yourself. God brought you here for a purpose,” he stressed.
After the donation, Mkhize, who was in the country on a two-day visit to oversee activations for The Life Changing Concert, addressed member of the press, promising an improved show from last year.
“We delivered to the best of our ability last year but we went back and assessed our performance in order for us to improve this year. Expect a big and a better show than last year!” he said of the concert, billed for August 24 at the University of Botswana’s Indoor Sports Arena.
Mkhize further revealed that the gospel group’s latest album ‘Joyous 23’ was heavily influenced by their previous show in Botswana.
“We added more Setswana songs to cater for Batswana after we noticed the kind of support we are having here,” he said before declaring he was impressed by the progress being made towards the show.
