Chaka Chaka to launch Kulila song

UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, Yvonne Chaka Chaka, will be in Walvis Bay to launch the “Kulila” song single and video featuring Namibian music composer, Gerson ‘Dollar’ Mwatile and the Sunshine Centre children’s choir.

The renowned world-class performer will grace the stage tonight at the Advocacy, Partnership and Resource Mobilisation fundraising gala event, to launch the much anticipated ‘Kulila’ song as part of UNICEF’s ongoing 70th celebrations as well as the Sunshine Centre’s 21st anniversary.
The song, which will be released as a single, also part of her upcoming album, was written by Mwatile giving insight into ‘growing up in Mondesa’.
The event is aimed at raising funds for the centre and demonstrate the many talents that children living with disabilities have. Chaka Chaka recorded the ‘Kulila’ song with the Sunshine Centre Children’s Choir, to symbolize her contribution toward the centre and advocating for the inclusion of children living with disabilities.
The event will take place at the Municipality Town Hall tonight at 19:00. Chaka Chaka will also perform a repertoire of her songs for the evening.
“UNICEF is proud to be associated with such a successful and meaningful endeavour,” said the UNICEF Representative Micaela Marques de Sousa. “Children with disabilities have rights too. We need to ensure that they are able to enjoy the same rights and choices as other children – among these, the right to life and to the opportunities that flow from good health care, nutrition and education. They should not be treated nor regarded simply as recipients of charity.”
“The struggles and challenges explained in the song in line with what children living with disabilities go through” Yvonne said “Surviving and thriving to their full potential can be especially difficult for children with disabilities. They are confronted with additional challenges as a result of their impairments and the many barriers that society throw their way. They encounter different forms of exclusion based on the degree of their disability and more so their gender.”
