- A Maskandi group called Ozungezwayo have been changing lives of communities around KZN
- Not only do they deliver good music, but also inspiring charity work
- They give back what they can to the community by helping the needy
Maskandi music is the type of genre that brings communities together. And a Maskandi trio has proven this true by giving back to their community whenever they can. The three young musicians do this by purchasing groceries for families in need.
The manager of the music group Ozungezwayo, Alex Memela, shared their wonderful story. Once a month the boys go to the community and choose one needy family. They then purchase groceries or sort out their electricity for them. They do this throughout KZN.
They use the money they receive from bookings and performances.
Last week in particular, the trio went to a place called Lindelani under Kwamashu, south of Durban. They bought groceries for an old lady who lives in a two room structure with four grandchildren and one daughter - none of them are employed. The family survives on the gogo's pension money. The 70-year-old woman can barely support them.
The Good Samaritans went to her house to give her some support with groceries and electricity card for the value of R 200. The grateful woman could not believe their kindness. She even tried paying them back for their good deed, but they refused her money.
Ozungezwayo believe that what they do for the community can bring unity and healing.
