MKK opening ceremony

By Mfundo Dafeti

The Media Kidocracy Konfrence opening ceremony was an event to remember. With entertainment from Bonfire Drama, Tumi and Craig from Dance Web, and a finale from South African award-winning RnB singer Danny K. Everyone was glued to their seats to hear what the popular singer had to say. It was an honour to have guest speaker and board member of Bush Radio Ms Leah Abrahamson and Macharia Kamau from UNICEF.

There was a sad moment for a while when Grace Gire from Sudan spoke about her experience with war and poverty in her country. It was great to hear how optimistic she and Chadia Nyota from Burundi shared their stories about their dreams and about their future.

The highlight of the evening was when RnB singer Danny K performed a single (Real Man) from his new album, and he got the girls melting. Dancer Tumi Tladia and choreographer Craig Bullock from Dance Web showed us some moves that got him in second place at the World Championships in Germany, becoming the first African person to be in that position. After all that fun it was lights out and ready for the following day.
