BECKY Casting Agency founder Bekezela “Becky” Dube donated to the needy in Inqama Village, Umzingwane district in Matabeleland South.
The event was attended by the Umzingwane legislator Levi Mayihlome and top artistes such as songbird Sandra Ndebele-Sibindi and Mzobanzi “Mzoe7” Malalazi.
In an interview with NewsDay Life & Style, the South Africa-based Becky said Inqama Village was being overlooked as not much had been done to support the needy.
“There are so many vulnerable people here (Inqama Village) including old people who don’t even know the test of sugar in their mouths,” she said.
“I will never forget my roots. This is why I decided to come back through this launch where we donated groceries to more than 15 old people who are in need. This will not end here as I promise to keep on uplifting our village.”
Mzoe7 said although he was not signed under Becky Casting Agency, it was a pleasure to join her at the launch as she had opened opportunities for him.
“I am here to support her as she always does for me. I am hoping that soon I will get a role in one of the projects they are working on,” he said.

Ndebele-Sibindi said Becky had been supportive not only of artistes, but also people in the communities.
“It has been a pleasure working with Becky and I wish her the best in everything that she is doing,” she said.
One of the villagers, who received a food donation, Silibaziso Moyo said: “We appreciate all the good things that Becky has done for us. Our wish is that all the children in the diaspora remember us as Becky has done.”Follow us on Twitter @NewsDayZimbabwe
