Being African in itself deserves celebration and as such a young group of people from the organisation Young People for Others (YPO) held the third annual “TiriAfrica Concert” last Saturday, which celebrated Africa Day and being African at the same time inducing African pride in the youth. The concert was held at Arrupe College in Mt Pleasant. The event was graced by the Kenyan ambassador to Zimbabwe, Mrs Lucy Chelimo and the Malawian ambassador to Zimbabwe Ms Annie Kumwendo. Various high schools were present including Goromonzi high school, St Peters Mbare, Kutama College, St Ignatius College and St Dominics Chishawasha, as well as St Ignatius College Zambia.
The event commenced at 10am with performances from musicians such as Alexio Kawara and Inno Mpemba and the flavor Jam, poetry from young individuals such as Ects, Rumbidzo Gunduza and the 25 May Movement among many others. In a way of showing what being African is, the different schools in attendance had presentations in the form of drama, music, poetry, spoken word and also dance, fulfilling YPO’s mission of mobilising students from different schools in taking active roles in charity work.
“Being African is not merely about skin color, the way we talk, or the way we walk. It is something deeper that goes back to who we are as children of this mother Africa. It goes deeper than mannerisms and tendencies. It could be the fact that we share this continent and somehow having the knowledge that wherever or how far we may wander from it, Africa will still be home. At the end of the day it is up to you to decide what it is to be African, then you may grace the fourth TiriAfrica Concert 2018,” said TiriAfrica Concert organisers in a statement.
The lunch served at the event consisted of a variety of African dishes. The African vibe was truly in the air and continued after lunch, with dancing bound to be the primary activity, until 5pm as everyone in attendance could not resist the urge. Last year's proceeds went to Mother Of Peace Children's Home in Mutoko, but as it takes more than just money to make a difference, the proceeds for this year helped to reach out to various beneficiaries as part of YPO’s service projects, reaching out to as many of the less privileged and spending as much time with them as possible.
