Come October 14, award-winning gospel singer Levixone will be holding a charity concert at the Uganda museum.
Beyond being known for chart-topping songs like Esaala, Ani and Noony’omu, he is also famous for his charitable works. He has always been involved in charity mainly focusing on helping people in Kosovo, a Kampala slum where he grew up from.
For three years now, the singer has been running two campaigns – Back to School and Feed Kosovo. While the Feed Kosovo campaign happens on every Christmas day, the former occurs at the beginning of every school term to raise scholastic materials for school-going underprivileged children in the slum.
Proceeds from last year’s concert held in Bugolobi went towards Feed Kosovo campaign. This time, he is extending his reach to Karamoja to build a school in Nakapiripirit district.
The ambassador for an NGO called Fields of Life in East Africa learnt, while doing charity in Karamoja, that many children did not go to school because of long distances.
“I have been on tours trying to raise money, and this concert is the finale. Proceeds will go towards building a primary school,” he says.
His concert has attracted most of the big acts to perform for the good cause. These include Coopy Bly, Pastor Wilson Bugembe, Pastor Brian Lubega, Exodus, Judith Babirye, Fortune Spice, Zabuli and Robin San, among others.
Deejays Twonjex, Peruz, Stef and Awar are expected to play a set each. Tickets will cost Shs 20,000 and Shs 50,000 for VIPs.
