Drimz sings for peace, unity at Kabwe’s Civic Centre

WITH the threat of violence casting a dark shadow on the August 11 elections, Kabwe-based musician, Drimz, known for his hit song Ireen Mambilima, has joined the queue of personalities and organisations promoting peace and unity ahead of next month’s elections.
Drimz, whose real name is Lota Mandevu, last Saturday performed at the Restless Development morning marathon dubbed “One for Peace Marathon” held on Freedom Way in front of the Kabwe Civic Centre.
Members of Restless International led by the organisation’s country director Harriet Mwiinga braved the chilly morning to promote peace and unity in the country, and Drimz was also on hand to grace the event.
When he went on stage, Drimz, who has also sung Ama Dance Yamu Lolo, urged the youth not to be used as tools of violence but to remain peaceful.
“You are feeling good?” Drimz asked the cheering youths as he made the appeal. “Please respect yourself, don’t be violent; let’s not fight each other.”
Supported by Lucky B, Drimz started his performance with Umutende, his latest song in which he underscores the importance of peace in the country.
This song was enough to attract the attention of people who were on Freedom Way, and within seconds, the Salt Muli Supu singer ambushed them with Ireen Mambilima, Lolo, Dolosi and Mpaka Ubushiku.
The crowd went wild, and had no option but to dance along.
It was a good way to keep warm.
Even the Restless International country director could not resist.
And speaking earlier, when she addressed the gathering, Mwiinga called on Zambians to love one another before, during and after the elections, saying there is no need for people to fight each other.
“Let’s cherish the peace that we have in Zambia because in other countries, they don’t have peace,” she said.
“If we lose our peace, it will take time to restore peace. Our friends in other countries are suffering because they don’t have peace and it is very important that we uphold peace at all costs.”
