So, after #FatumasVoice went National last week by launching in Nakuru County, Artists from other African countries have started expressing interest in who Fatuma really is and how they can speak out for her using their Art, Poetry and Music.
One of these Artists is one Marco Sadik from Malawi, who has gradually developed his musical talent for years to the point of being regarded as one of the best contemporary AfroFusion musicians originating out of Malawi.
Marco feels ready to break the silence and will be speaking out at #FatumasVoice for the first time through his music that greatly leans on the days topic.
#FatumasVoice is a weekly forum that exists to speak out about the issues affecting our daily lives. While at it, we also encourage and stimulate sustainable solutions that can be implemented from the ground up… One of such issues is Maternal health.
According to the World Health Organisation, Maternal Health refers to the health of women during pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period. While motherhood is often a positive and fulfilling experience, for too many women it is associated with suffering, ill-health and even death. The major direct causes of maternal morbidity and mortality include haemorrhage, infection, high blood pressure, unsafe abortion, and obstructed labor.
Last week, #FatumasVoice tackled this topic in depth and here is what happened in pictures… This week we talk about #Friendship: Just how do you choose your friends? What does friendship mean to you? Looking at your life today, do you have real friends? Did anyone teach you how to make them? How do you filter people to be close to and those to be distant from? What kind of a friend are you?
Tag all your friends to this Saturday’s Fatuma’s Voice as we celebrate and learn more about friendship. Poetry, music and conversation is on the menu.
