Namibia expects to host South African songbird Yvonne Chaka Chaka Friday for the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF)’s 70th anniversary to be held at Walvis Bay.
Chaka Chaka is the UNICEF regional Goodwill Ambassador for Eastern and Southern Africa on Malaria and the African Union Goodwill Ambassador on prevention and response to violence against children and women.
She is expected to launch her song titled Kulila that she recorded with the help of children from Walvis Bay Sunshine Centre at the port town about 395 kilometers from Windhoek.
The centre was established in 1995 by concerned residents to provide support to local children who have disabilities and disorders.
Chaka Chaka visited the Walvis Bay Sunshine Children’s Centre in 2016 and promised that she would use her voice and influence to leverage support for children and their rights.
As part of her contribution to the centre and advocating for the inclusion of children living with disabilities, Chaka Chaka recorded the song with the Sunshine Centre Children’s Choir.
The song, which will be released as a single and as part of her upcoming album, will be launched on July 28 during a gala dinner to mark the centre’s 21st anniversary and UNICEF’s 70th. Enditem
