PJ Powers, a South African born, internationally acclaimed singer/songwriter, visited Kampala in April to film the music video for her new hit song "Home to Africa" with local artists Radio & Weasel. While she was in town, PJ stopped by the Mazuri Designs' workshop to have a few items of clothing made for her. We are super excited that she chose to wear our creations in her music video! See the photos below for behind-the-scenes images from the filming day and stay tuned for the official video!
While in Kampala, PJ also visited the projects of our sister organization, Girl Up Initiative Uganda, and made media appearances ahead of the GUIU Charity Concert that she will headline on June 30th, 2017 at the Kampala Serena Hotel. Funds raised at the GUIU Charity Concert will support Girl Up Initiative Uganda's mission to provide young women and girls with opportunities to succeed and thrive as leaders in their slum communities through holistic education and economic empowerment. Their work includes teaching empowerment, sexual health and reproductive rights, gender equity, confidence, and life skills to adolescent girls. Part of their programming also includes our Mazuri Designs seamstress training, so we are very excited about this upcoming event, which will no doubt be the talk of Kampala!
We invite you to join us at the GUIU Charity Concert on June 30th. Concert sponsorship opportunities are still available. Please contact Monica at 0782 059 599 or Saidi at 0776 739 006 if your company is interested in supporting Girl Up Initiative Uganda's mission through a sponsorship or booking of a VIP table.
And if you are looking for a trusted business to produce clothing that offers excellent quality products and great customer service, you are most welcome to visit our workshop. We custom design items for you, and can even re-create PJ's look if you please! If you are in Kampala, you can find more information here on how to get your very own Mazuri Designs creation!
