CHILDREN with disabilities at St Giles Rehabilitation and Medical Center yesterday got a rare treat when Andy Muridzo paid them a visit as he celebrated his 27th birthday.
Andy who is also the St Giles Housing and Project Trust ambassador shared his birth-day cake and performed requests from the children.
The Dherira singer was joined by some members of his Jeetaz band and fans who afforded the children a ‘meat and greet’ session.
The entertainer did acapella versions of Dherira and Chidhafu Dhunda.
In his birthday speech, Andy said:
“I am excited to return and spend this special day with my friends at St Giles School.
“I thought of going nowhere else but to bring all the goodies and share them with every student.
“I did this on my birthday and expect each one of the student to invite me to their birthday at the school,” said Andy.
The entertainer also could not hide his elation after meeting some of his fans at the centre.
“I am happy I have lived my moment, I had thought of celebrating with the children and I am happy it happened as planned,” he said.
Standing in for the school head, Ruth Mabanga welcomed the musician’s gesture.
“We are honoured to have Andy Muridzo as our Trust ambassador and moreover to have him share his special day celebrations with us.
“We thank him for remembering the children and for performing their favourite songs as per request,” she said.
St Giles Housing and Project Trust founder Eshuwet Maikoti also appealed for more support for the school.
“We are appealing to well-wishers to help us start projects we intend to involve parents of our students.
“We have lined up projects like Poultry, Catering and manufacturing detergents.
“Our hope is to get the capital, the land and necessary documents to get the projects going,” said Maikoti.
