GOSPEL musician Marvin says that the recently held educational and music festival dubbed CAMA has opened up his horizon to use music as a tool to educate people.
The singer who is also renowned keyboard player that has for a long time worked with the Air Power Band, says he was happy to be part of the many artistes that took part in the Chris Aka Media Arts Festival held at Musaka Lodge in 14 Miles area last weekend.
Sponsored by Plan International-Zambia and focused on children’s rights and early marriages, CAMA was held for three days and engaged artistes in various deliberations and music performances. “I particularly liked the theme which was ‘Artistes Unite against Child Marriages’.
It was touching to learn that Zambia is amongst the top 20 countries in the world with the highest rate of child marriages.
For this, I wish to dedicate my time and art to help sensitize people on the subject so that we find a better solution to end early marriages,” said Marvin who recently released his debut album, ‘Kuba Uwakosa’ inspired by the scripture Joshua 1:6.
