Top Cheri launches cancer initiative

01 November 2019 | Art and Entertainment

Award-winning musician Top Cheri has launched Cups of Hope With Top Cheri, an initiative that will raise funds to help the Cancer Association of Namibia (CAN) with its outreach programmes.

Speaking at the launch this week, Top Cheri said she came up with this idea because she feels not enough is being done to inform the masses about cancer in Namibia.

“Exit is always touring the country talking about TB, King Tee Dee does the same addressing male circumcision, which is commendable, but not enough is done to inform people about cancer, hence I came up with this initiative,” she said.

Explaining how the funds will be raised, the singer shared she will source the cupcakes from Shiwa The Baker and sell them to individuals and companies. The profits will then be donated to CAN. “I call on fellow influential people to rally behind this initiative so that it becomes a success.

“My wish is for the masses to be informed about cancer… go for screenings, so that if you do have any kind of cancer, you can be put on medication on time to prevent it from getting to stages that eventually lead to loss of life,” she said.

Complementing the launch, Top Cheri also premiered a new song titled Calling Heaven, which is a tribute to all those who have lost lives to and have been affected by cancer.
