Miss Blantyre, musician DNA inspire Nyambadwe students
The reigning Miss Blantyre Chisomo Machero and trending music star DNA were on Friday, 30th September guests at Nyambadwe Community Day Secondary School in Blantyre where they inspired learners.
The trip which was facilitated by the Miss Blantyre organising team was a gesture of support to Machero in her activities as the ambassador of Keep Blantyre Clean and Green campaign. As a matter of intensifying the support, musician DNA had to go along.
Machero also spat a word of encouragement to the students as she advised them to exercise diligence towards their studies if they are to be true future leaders.
The Polytechnic alumni revealed she will be launching her foundation called Young, Educated and Talented (YET), which will target young people who struggle in different areas.
“As I prepare to launch my foundation before I hand over the crown on 4th November this year, a key milestone will be a closer working relationship with my project’s targeted schools so that I understand their needs for my support through the foundation,” said Machero
Among highlights of the day was an acapella performance by the Mukandipepesere hitmaker. He mesmerised the attendants with his magical vocals which were completed by handclaps in absence of instrumentation.
DNA also encouraged students to work hard in school while nurturing their talents. He stressed the two complement each other thus no need to separate them.
“Talent without education may not go as far as one may aspire. As an artist, I worked hard in school, and today you all appreciate me for music. I therefore encourage you to work hard in school and nurture the talents you have,” he said.
The sanitation campaign has the backing of Mayor for Blantyre, Noel Chalamanda, who is among those drumming up support for the Miss Blantyre beauty pageant slated for 4th November at Comes Hall in the city. He also played a paramount role in the previous edition.
