DJ Lomwe dreams to uplift orphans

Lomwe has unveiled his dream to establish a charity aimed at helping
orphaned youth realise their potential.

The radio and club deejay, who represented the country in the just-ended
Big Brother Amplified reality show, revealed the goodwill mission during
a welcome cocktail organised by the Ministry of Tourism, Wildlife and
Culture and Sunbird Hotels on Friday.

Lomwe was raised without a father and lost his mother at age 16. He
wants to harness the spotlight and networks attained in the ended 91-day
M-net TV series to make parentless children realise that not all is lost.

“Having seen very little about my parents, I know it is devastating to
be an orphan. So, it is my passion to set up an organisation that will
help them realise their talents and make it big in life. I believe this
is what the children need to become progressive citizens,” the former
housemate said.

On the show, the FM 101 Power selector said he would establish a radio
station if he won the $200 000 (about K30.4 million) prize.

After losing the green bucks to Nigeria’s Karen and Zimbabwe’s Wendall,
he envisages establishing a music studio. He says it will cost about K3
million to establish the recording house.

Meanwhile, Felicia has partnered with Daudi Suleman’s Nyimbo Music
Company in a charity called Felicia Dream for Youth Empowerment and
Self-Reliance.

The initiative aims to inspire the youth who face a bleak future in time
of HIV and Aids, poverty and peer pressure.

During the cocktail, Minister of Tourism, Wildlife and Culture Ken
Lipenga urged individuals and firms to support the dreams of the BBA
housemates.

According to MultiChoice Malawi sales and marketing manager Chimwemwe
Nyirenda, the cocktail raised K707 000 (about $4 310) for finalist Lomwe
and K467 000 (about $2 853) for evictee Felicia.
