MUSIC for Change goodwill ambassador Bâ€™Flow last Saturday took his activism work back to his home town of Kabwe with a show at Kawama area in the Central Province Agricultural and Commercial Showgrounds where he had partnered with KNC Radio of Kabwe for a community outreach programme dubbed â€˜Ishiwiâ€™ (My Voice).
B Flow (Brian Bwembya), a 2015 Mandela Washington Fellow, has been one of the voices promoting peace and unity in the country, even as the nation headed for the general elections last month.
Well, he remains a popular figure in Kabwe.
The moment he stepped on stage, Bâ€™Flow, who was supported by Aladeen and Ron K of Zed Pride, the gathering of mostly the youth and children, went wild.
However, before he took to the stage, Kabwe-based up-and-coming artistes in the name of T Gear, Tripo Ceezo, Splash, TJ, Styles, MCM Jay Don, Mixxy, Kraazy Chick, Davy and Snaz warned the stage.
KNCâ€™s DJ Shofolo and Given were also on hand to ensure that the event was a success.
But it looked like the time was not enough for the event, particularly for Bâ€™Flow to sing most of the songs favoured by the audience.
In the end, he settled for Dear Mama, Amakofi, Cry of a Woman, Victory and Umupamba, which is his latest single.
He punctuated his performance with messaged of peace, unity, patriotism and the ills of gender-based violence.
Bâ€™Flow said during the polls, people in the country exercised their democratic right to vote for candidates and political parties of their choice but now it is time to foster peace and national unity.
â€œWhat we know is that we are â€˜one Zambia, one nationâ€™, no fights, no violence, thatâ€™s how it should be,â€ Bâ€™Flow said.
â€œThe issue of tribalism will destroy the country. As Zambians, we reject tribalism, itâ€™s not for Zambia and it poses a danger to development.â€
Bâ€™Flow also underscored the need for people in the country to take care of each other and abhor any kind of violence.
During his interactions with the gathering, he urged Zambians to hold their new councillors and members of Parliament accountable for the promises they were making during their campaigns prior to the elections.
He calls it music for change.
