Divine Assignments spokesperson Lawrence Chinoperekwei yesterday said artistes have been the missing link in sensitising the generality of people about the need for citizens to be pro-active.

“Artistes are probably like one missing piece of the jigsaw puzzle in as far as Tokwe-Mukorsi is concerned,” said Chinoperekwei.

“Since the Tokwe-Mukorsi disaster occurred we have heard, read and seen a lot of organisations and well-wishers playing their part to tame the challenges at Chingwizi Camp and we believe artistes and the generality of Zimbabweans have a social responsibility role to play in situations like these.”

Chinoperekwei said he feels compelled to join hands with those that are already influencing lives positively at the camp and complement their efforts in that regard.
He said Devine Assignments would coordinate the benefit show so that artistes can get an opportunity to play their social responsibility role.

Jah Prayzah is so far the only artiste who has confirmed participation in the initiative.
The musician, who is due to release a new album on April 16, at the Harare International Conference Centre, also pledged one of his tracks Sei Mambo off the forthcoming album titled Kupfumbura mhute.

“I will be very glad to participate for that noble cause and I am hoping if all goes well we will make a video of the track that would be sold with proceeds going to fund a yet to be identified project at Chingwizi,” said Jah Prayzah.
