“I have decided to step up and help William Kachigamba finish his battle against cancer. Tonight I will hold an online auction to sell my favourite personal guitar that I have been using for the past 4 year 12 months and 6 days. William is getting way better thou he has hit a financial dead end. Something must be done quick. William is now officially stranded. Get ready to own my favourite semi acoustic guitar,” said Namadingo on Tuesday.
In August this year, the multi-talented musician turned himself into a living statue to help raise money for a 21-year old Kachigamba, who is currently receiving treatment in Zambia.
The artist declared he would only leave the site, which was previously proposed to be a place for Mahatma Gandhi’s statue close to the roundabout at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital in Blantyre, once he manages to raise the K3 million.
The Mtendere hit maker left the place around 6:30 in the evening after President Lazarus Chakwera had reportedly sent a word through his adviser on Youth and Arts Lucius Banda advising the artist to leave the place and go home as the Malawi leader would help raise the remaining sum, according to manager of the artist Peter Mazunda.
