The Show You Cannot Afford to Miss!
Today, 7 days before the big concert, we had a dry run through the concert script with all the artists signed up for the 1 Million campaign. It was exciting to hang out with the folks and to feel their ideas and intentions to be full time JIJUE ambassadors.
hey have committed to utilizing their high school outreach ministries to share the freedom of knowing your HIV status and the positive vision of an AIDS Free Africa. These outreaches will include hoods, high schools and campuses, where JIJUE ambassadors will partner with various organizations to celebrate the Freedom of knowing. Outreach will be expansive, from church bulletins to sending texts messages, from using the viral marketing for education to influencing though comedy.
The artists were inspired to do collabos taking about the fears associated with HIV testing, especially in the low income populations and informal settlements. They are excited to partner with the Ministry of Education to deliver the mentorship agenda and also utilize their expansive online networks to reinforce the vision of JIJUE 1 Million and to educate their peers. The artists extended a hand to have TV and radio presenters be part of the campaign and to organize countrywide JIJUE camps to encourage the youth to know their status and prevent infection.
The partnership with the media for this campaign is on a new level, and thus it it exciting that NTV and the whole of Nation Media Group have given incredible support to this campaign. NTV will be sending in their OB van to come and shoot the concert, which will be rebroadcasted live in a weeks time. JIJUE 1 Million dvd album will also be shot live.
The "wow" will be JIJUE theme song a collabo combining a blend of afro fusion, local rap and rock. Pete Odera surprised us with a sneak preview of the Niko Sure Najijua Theme song, which he has scripted and produced. The track begins with such a powerful punch from Jars of Clay and the lovely rap from 501, soft vocals of Kora ward winning KIKI, a squeeze from Eddie Gray and a touch of Kanjii “I am confident of myseeeeeelf!”
