The charity concert on August 15, at the School of Finance and Banking was fantastic, and the best concert I have ever attended. If you didn’t attend, you really missed a lot, because it was well worth the time and money.
R’n’B maestro Tom Close was among a number of local musicians who staged with a view to support disadvantaged children.
The charity show organized by the ongoing Miss SFB in collaboration with other Miss Campuses in Rwanda.
In her opening remarks, Miss SFB, Joan Ingabire explained that she felt the need to raise funds for the helpless children in society, whom she described as “our sisters and brothers”. “They’re our sisters and brothers, its thus our responsibility to support them have a better future.”
By exactly 7:00pm, SFB’s main hall was already parked to its capacity by concert goers, who flocked in from different parts of Kigali.
The mood was superb. And it was obvious for everyone that there was an extraordinary event taking place at the campus’s premises. Very many cars directed to the venue, while folks from the neighborhood also roamed to the venue in a larger number.
Local upcoming musicians secured chance to perform alongside the country’s famous musicians, including The Ben, Tom Close and Miss Shanel, who were the key performers.
Models also displayed latest fashion designs from the top fashion boutiques in the country, including designs from Top Class shop, Fatty Shop and some of Patrick Muhire’s designs.
Misses passed goodwill baskets through the audience to fundraise money to support the deprived children in the country.
The event was proudly sponsored by Simba Supermarket. During the event, one of the supermarket’s employees, Charles Gasana donated Rfw300, 000.
“I’m delighted to participate in this act,” singer K8 said, adding that, “It feels great performing in goodwill concerts than performing for money.”
Miss SFB, Ingabire told The New Times that the next step is to collect all the money, including the amount that was pledged, to reachto the children.
“I’m so glad that the musicians accepted our invitation and that the turn from the audience was perfect,” Ingabire said.
