Bryan K launches video, online app

HARARE - Rising star Bryan K will launch his video for the song Rudo and an online application called TuneMe at a free event to be held at Belgravia Sports Club tomorrow as part of his duties as Zimbabwe’s ambassador for the Safeguard Young People (SYP) initiative.

SYP is a regional programme supported by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) to improve Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) status of young people aged between 10 to 24 with a special focus on HIV prevention.

According to an SYP statement, TuneMe is a mobisite designed for access on mobile phones including feature phones.

“It was developed by UNFPA as a way of giving adolescents and young people a platform to learn and interact on issues pertaining to their sexual and reproductive health.

The online app features factual articles, expert advice, shared stories, relatable topics under discussion and it is user-friendly,” read part of the statement.

Bryan K’s Rudo is part of a SYP Regional Music Project featuring six artists from southern Africa who include Molibeli “Stlofa” Mokake (Lesotho), Duncan “Gwamba” Zgambo (Malawi),Kaliwa “DJ Khaliwa” Lubasi (Zambia), Game “Zeus” Bantsi  (Botswana) and Thamsanqa “KrTC” Sibandze  (Swaziland).

The six artistes individually and collaboratively worked on an album with the aim of generating demand for the uptake of sexual and reproductive health and HIV services such as contraception amongst young people.

Bryan K, who launched the video for the song Heavy Machine last month, will perform alongside the red-hot Tamy, Shasha, Reverb 7 and Jamm Signal at the event being supported by Saywhat Organisation, UNFPA (Zimbabwe), SYP and Ngomanehosho.
