Octopizzo celebrates special day

16 June 2015, 18:09 Eugene Odanga

Nairobi - You know an artist has achieved their potential when they shift their attention from themselves and their careers, to the society and the underprivileged. Octopizzo, arguably Kenya’s most successful hip hop artist, is out on a mission to save the children.

Having grown up in the Kibera slums, he understands the hardships that the underprivileged and orphaned children in the country are going through.

He has set out on a campaign to sensitize people on the importance of looking after Nairobi’s children. Today being the Day of the African Child, the rapper has taken it upon himself to be the voice of these children. In a post on his Facebook page, he calls people to action, asking his fans and friends to come together and not let the children suffer and die.

He wrote “You have never really lived until you can do something for someone who can never repay you.” He goes on to add “Today being the ?#‎DayoftheAfricanChild (DAC) Day All over the World, Let us be the ones who say we do not accept that a child dies every three seconds simply because he/she does not have the drugs you a& I have. Let us be the ones to say we are not satisfied that your place of birth determines your right to life. Let us be outraged, let us be loud, and let us be bold. Take a moment and remember all the children we've lost through war, diseases, poverty etc and stand for a future of a Child. ”

Cheers to the day of the African child.
