Macheso in kids New Year treat
4 January 2017
. . . takes break for studio
ZIMBABWE Red Cross Society humanitarian ambassador (ZRCS) Alick Macheso has a soft spot for children!
The musician bought drinks for a number of children who attended his family show with their parents at Extra Mile Leisure Spot on the New Year’s Day.
Macheso described the show as a ‘thank you’ to his fans who supported him in the previous year and he feels he owe his fans a lot.
During his performance, he invited children to the stage to showcase their dancing skills while their parents watched in pleasure.
While the idea is to fulfill the concept of a family show, somehow, the entertainer went on to fork out money from his pocket and ordered one of his members to buy drinks for the minors.
Interestingly, he did not demand change but ordered the person to look for other kids in the crowd.
The show was well attended despite the wet weather that characterised most parts of the country.
One parent who identified herself as Mai Kuda said Macheso’s gesture is commendable.
“He did not use a lot of money but that gesture shows love for his fans. We also feel inspired to come with our kids to his family shows.
“My child is very happy and I know that he wants to come back again,’ she said.
Speaking on the sidelines of the show, Baba Sharo said he is just showing his love for children as well his fans.
“It’s nothing much but these are our bosses and I was just appreciating the support and love,” he said.
And being a humanitarian ambassador, Macheso is known for his philanthropic approach especially during their tours of needy communities with ZRCS.
Meanwhile, Macheso has taken a break in live shows to work on his 11th album expected March.
While the break is annual meant to give his members a rest, his publicist Tich Makahamadze also spoke of a new album.
“The break is annual during this period but this time around we want him to have time in studio.
“So we will be resuming shows the third week of January and by then I hope we will be sampling some of the new songs,” he said.
