A Gugulethu DJ cum philanthropist is pushing forth with his initiative to raise funds for the less fortunate.

Thando Mapipa, also known as Kaunda Muzikal, launched Gone Rouge last year where he staged events where he raised R5000.

“Last year wasn’t able to raise what I was targeting after the event had to be shut down but I’m hoping that this time around all will go well,” he said.

He used the funds he made to buy uniforms for learners from Nobantu Primary School. This year he is hoping to raise money to buy winter clothing for learners.

“Its winter now so the children need things such as raincoats and gumboots, so Im hoping to assist them there,” he explained. He also said that he decided to assist with school uniform because he felt that people don’t understand the importance of the uniform to a child.

“In my own experience I know what it feels like when you are at school and you don’t have the full uniform. Your self esteem suffers and eventually it leads to poor performance. So for me this is my way to bring as a much change that I can,” he said.

He will be hosting his third event on June 16 at So Chilla in NY1 next to Chicken Land. On the event Kaunda will be supported by DJs such as Pisce, TP, Miss Eve, Kenlow and Aux Womdantso.

Cover charge is R100 and the event starts at 18:00. For more info and how to assist call Kaunda on 0730188623.
