jamaican musicians morgan heritage surprise kenyans by asking them to get huduma number - Jamaican musicians Morgan Heritage surprise Kenyans by asking them to get Huduma number

While some Kenyans have vowed they’ll not sign up for a Huduma number, it seems some foreigners are ready to go and registers. Kenyans were recently surprised by an unexpected message from Grammy-winning reggae group Morgan Heritage, who urged Kenyans to go and register for controversial Huduma number. The group, which moved to Kenya and even promised to buy land around Naivasha a few months ago, said the number has it’s own purpose. The group has stayed in Kenya for several years now and many wanted to know whether they register for the number. “If I will be allowed to register for I will definitely do it,” Mojo, one of the members, said during the launch of Tomorrow Leaders Festival. “Back home, your name does not mean anything because we may find ten people in a city with the exact name living and was born in the same city as yours. A number called social security number is what identifies you as a citizen.” Beautiful country Peter asked Kenyans not to be afraid of the number saying the government is trying to make things better since Kenya is a very beautiful country. “We consider Kenya as one of the warmest places in the world that we would want to live in. Mojo has not left ken ya since December last year and the fruit of what he has been doing here on behalf of the Morgan heritage foundation is the concert,” he said.

incredibly talented kids from korogocho slums to perform alongside grammy award winner - Incredibly talented kids from Korogocho slums to perform alongside Grammy Award winner

Ghetto life can be rough. Many young people who grow up in Kenyan slums are forced to turn to crime to make ends meet. More often than not, this does not end well for them and their families. A Kenyan Catholic priest known as Father John Webootsa of St. John’s Parish in Korogocho knew this too well and this explains why he set out to change the ‘ghetto narrative’ in 2008. The 38-year-old cleric was keen on improving the living conditions slum dwellers so much so that he asked Elizabeth Njoroge to teach young people music at a community centre in Korogocho. This community project is what became the Ghetto Classics. With time, the centre was able to acquire instruments which have helping underprivileged children from various parts of Nairobi. In 2013, Kenya’s leading mobile service provider, Safaricom, through its CEO Bob Collymore, asked Elizabeth to form the Safaricom Youth Orchestra. In 2014, the teleco started the Safaricom Jazz Festival and donated all proceeds from ticket sales to the program. Since then, Ghetto Classic has received approximately Ksh 60 million from Safaricom. These funds cater for music training, schooling and basic needs of over 650 children from different slums in Kenya. The beneficiaries of this program have acquired skills that have given them hope and opened a world of possibilities. Apart from performing before the likes of Pope Francis and President Uhuru Kenyatta, these young boys and girls have also shared stages with music greats like Branford Marsalis, Kirk Whalum, Salif Keïta, Marcus Miller, just to name a few. On Wednesday May 1, 2019, Ghetto Classics will have another opportunity to perform alongside two music legends i.e. two-time Grammy awards winner Paco Sery (Ivory Coast) and Cheick Tidiane Seck (Mali) who will be the headlining acts in this year’s edition of Safaricom International…
