27 September 2019 | Art and Entertainment

Party's Heart, a community outreach programme honouring the legacy of Priscilla 'Patty' Niilonga Geingos through food and clothing drives and other support initiatives, has revealed the line-up for this year's Old School Benefit Concert.

It includes Boli, Ras Sheehama, Gazza, Jossy Joss, Killa B, King Tee Dee, Frieda, Oteya, Jericho, Kanibal, Lady May Africa and many more. The event will take place at the Katutura Youth Complex Stadium.

In an interview with tjil, founder of Patty's Heart, Nangula Geingos, shared that to obtain tickets to the concert one needs to purchase non-perishable items at Shoprite or Checkers.

“After purchasing the item you take it to the Computicket counter, you give them your receipt and they will see where it says tinned fish, bag of sugar or other non-perishable items and they will give you a ticket in exchange.

“At the end of course you can imagine that Shoprite and Checkers will accumulate a good stock of these food items, which we will then hand over to the food bank in support of the government's effort to eradicate poverty,” said Geingos.

Prior to the music concert, Geingos shared that the foundation will have a charity week that will feature different charity events including visiting the children at the Windhoek Central Hospital who are battling cancer and give them gifts and toys.

On Wednesday the foundation will host an awards dinner at the Windhoek Country Club and Casino in honour of community heroes in various fields.

“With the awards dinner, the idea is to introduce corporate companies which have supported the foundation over the years to the beneficiaries,” she said.
