  1. It was a night garnished with a variety of sounds and rhythm. A night to remember.
    It is just good to do ‘GOOD’ to others. Show kindness and empathy to the destitute. The late late Prince Nico Mbarga said in one of his popular tunes: “who knows tomorrow…” I am elated to see this kind of solidarity among some Artists in the Diapora. Un sel mot, go for before!!!
