Third Eye’s Issa Tour, which will take him to nine venues across selected cities and towns, has attracted the attention of South Africa’s High Commissioner to Malawi Mama Thenjie Mtitso who will grace the Lilongwe show on June 30 as guest of honour.
Third Eye, real name Mandela Mwanza, has influenced a lot of young people across the continent with his music now he is determined to do more to share the knowledge he has gained by exploring other avenues and the Issa Tour is one of such platforms.
“As a young leader, sharing the knowledge I have is one of the reasons I took part in leadership initiatives that have given me the opportunity to interact with influential world leaders,” said Third Eye who is a Young African Leaders Initiative (Yali) fellow. Yali was founded by former United States of America president Barack Obama.
The show on June 30, at the Bingu International Conference Centre, is part of the Issa Tour whose aim is to mobilise the youth for inclusive growth.
Third Eye launched the tour in Mzuzu on May 26 and he has already performed in Balaka. His next stop is Lilongwe on June 30 before going to Dedza, Mzimba, Zomba, Blantyre and Mulanje. The tour ends on September 1 with another performance in Lilongwe.
After the Issa Tour finale on September 1, Third Eye is set to launch the Financial Literacy Project with FDH Bank and the Ministry of Education at Lilongwe Girls Secondary School on September 21. The project has targeted 100 schools by the end of 2019.
“I believe financial literacy is an important aspect in our lives. Sometimes the youth waste the opportunities because there is no-one to guide them. I have experienced a lot while growing up and I have identified financial literacy as one of the areas I can focus on,” he said.
Apart from his performance on June 30, there will be a number of speakers who include Betty Osman who is Business Development Manager for Good Vision Glasses, Isaac Zuze of Infinity Media and former Miss Malawi First Princess Nthanda Manduwi.
