As the D-day set for Levixone’s charity concert soon approaches, UG Christian News has learnt that many of the top international artists and DJs expected to grace this event have already arrived in Kampala.
Award winning gospel stars, Hope Kid and DK Kwenye Beat, DJs including Alemba and Mo were on Thursday hosted on popular NTV Uganda Music program The Beat.
The group expressed their excitement about being in Uganda and appealed to masses to turn up in large numbers for the charity cause at Uganda Museum.
Earlier in the day, Levixone, who is also addressed as “Kosovo president” for his humanitarian work in Kosovo slum, had a press conference at the MTN head offices in the Capital Kampala where he assured fans everything is set for their arrival.
Asked why he chose to engage in charity work, Levixone said: “I was once helped. The people of Kosovo were there for me. They took care of me when I had nothing. I used to sleep under pool tables at a structure where I was a pool attendant. They actually fired me from that job because I used to cover myself with the tent that had to cover my boss’s pool table,”
“I promised God if he ever blesses me, I will give back,” he said.
“I believe there is nothing we can give God other than giving to others. From my shows and music, I said I will give back to the people. There is a white man who paid for my school fees from an organisation called Fields of live till form one – I however stopped in form 4 after paying my own fees a few years later. Issue is, if someone came come from elsewhere to pay for my school fees, then how about me? I leave in the community and see kids not going to school,” he added.
Proceeds from this event will, according to the Levixone, be used to help build a primary school in famine-hit district, Nakapiripirit, Karamoja sub-region.
“The children you see begging on the streets of Kampala are supposed to be in school. We want to fight that. I believe we can be the change we want to see in Uganda. We cannot wait for government or funders to do everything. Lets do what we can and let them at least simply top up. I believe having a school in Nakapiripirit will change many lives,”he explained.
