Record producer and founder of Afrotainment, DJ Tira – real
name Mthokozi Khathi – is set to hold a #SafeDecemberPrayer session at the Ethekwini
Community Church on 27 of November 2019 at 5PM.
Speaking to DRUM Tira said he came up with this initiative
because during the December holidays a lot of bad things happen such as road
accidents and violence when people are intoxicated.
“As an individual I like helping the community so I just
woke up one day and decided to post about this #SafeDecemberPrayer because
there is a lot that we need to pray for, especially since we are also in the 16
days of activism against women and children. I strongly believe we need to pray
for safety as well as the wellbeing of our women and children.”
“As much as we are excited about the upcoming holidays and
the fun that it brings, we need to pray even harder as a country so that we are
able to fight the evil spirits that come with the festive season.”
The DJ said he hopes that people will come in numbers for
the payer session which will feature artists such as Hlengiwe Mhlaba, Dumi
Mkokstad, Thinah Zungu, Mondli Ngcobo, Qwabe Twinz, Joocy and Mduduzi.
