ZIMBABWE born but UK-based gospel singer, poet and songwriter, Nkosi Ka Ndlovu, will next month hold a benefit show meant to fundraise for a Matabeleland school, Zidulini.
The show is scheduled for the 5th of next month at Calvary Apostolic Assembly church in Birmingham, UK.
Ndlovu said his desire is to persuade Zimbabweans to converge on projects which seek to improve educational standards for children learning at disadvantaged schools.
“Like other nationals, I think, as Zimbabweans, we must learn to work together, help each other and share what we are blessed with.
“That way we will improve our talents, be it sports, arts or music, we just have to stick together,” he said.
Apart from helping disadvantaged children in Matebeleland’s Nkayi area, Nkosi dreams of setting up art and music centres in the region to tap into the hidden talents the marginalised local youths.
Being a former student and patron of Zidulini, Ndlovu has been involved in projects aimed at rebuilding and improving the quality of education at the institution through proceeds from his concerts and the sale of his music since 2007.
He has, in the recent past, made textbooks and uniform donations.
Ndlovu said being successful in the arts industry requires patience and persistence.
“Just keep believing and working hard, it’s not always going to be a walk in the park; they’ll first ignore you, laugh at you, fight you and finally you win.”
Nkosi will also stage his maiden shows in Zimbabwe in October 2015 and South Africa in July 2016.
He has already extensively toured and performed in churches, conferences and weddings in the UK.
The singer and his band, The Experience, who produces a cocktail of a rich mix of Afro jazz, traditional and contemporary gospel, launched his career in 2007 with his debut album entitled Umusa–Grace and has since then released two more albums namely Hamba Jonah album and My Journey.
