Last weekend the Princess of Africa Yvonne Chaka Chaka was in the country for a good cause. She came to give her support to Shule Foundation an NGO that takes care of former street kids. The NGO is raisng funds to construct a schhool.
And dspite a power blackout and bad sound the spririt of the princess could not be dampened as she rolled back the years to put up a lively performance for the charity cause.
The event which was organized by Shule Foundation founder Jackueline Wolfson in collaboration with several other partners and stake holders, was to raise funds for former street children now settled under the foundation and Chaka was invited as the headlining artiste and gladly accepted to perform free of charge.
Shule Foundation founded by Jacueline Wolfson affectionaley known as Auntie Jackie works with streets kids moving them from the slums into their interim house where they ‘detox’, receive counseling, reunite with their families and prepare to go back to school at their rehabilitation center to ‘give them their childhood back’.
Chaka Chaka with a beaming smile, and charm still oozing that raw natural beauty performed her popular songs like I’m in love with a DJ, Let him go, Freedom, My Mama Land and Unkombothi a lot of vigour as the fans cheered her on. Ghetto president H.E Bobi while who also doubles as member of parliament for Kyadondo East joined her in the cause alongside Rema.
