We want people to see this as the beginning of a fruitful journey between Goshen City and the arts industry in the globally. In this journey, we will partner with every artist both locally and internationally,” he said.
In his remarks, Gwamba said organizing a concert is financially strenuous as such his management has been knocking on various institutions and individuals’ seeking support and Goshen City is just one of them.
