Moonga K uploads portfolio on YouTube

Child prodigy Moonga K, who shot to fame thanks to the My African Dream talent show last year, has uploaded four music clips on YouTube in an effort to impress prospective sponsors as he works hard to raise the P80, 000 he needs for a scholarship at the famed Drakensberg Boys' choir in South Africa.

Maitisong, the company behind the My African Dream talent show as well as unearthing of the rough gem that is Moonga K, has decided to make the videos available so as to enable prospective sponsors to sample the boy's talent.

According to the Maitisong Director Rosalyn Beukes, they have also created a blog for the lad, as well as encouraging the 13-year-old to create a facebook account where he would interact with fans and prospective sponsors.

Maitisong have taken it upon themselves to help raise P80, 000 for the boy, although their last three shows have fallen far short of the target, with the most recent event held this past weekend at which P3,000 was raised.  Only 70 people attended the event, which also clashed with the high profile Miss Botswana grand finale at the Gaborone International Convention Centre (GICC).

The first fund-raising event, a corporate event, sold only 25 tickets out of the targeted 400, according to Maitisong. It raised P5,000 for Moonga K.

Beukes told Showbiz that Moonga K's place at the Drekensberg academy remains available until

next year, but said after the recent event the Maitisong team sat down with Moonga K's mother and decided the funds raised be used to offer the boy classical music lessons locally by David Slater.

She added that they would have another Moonga concert in August. "We are determined to keep this boy singing...  he will continue to sing with our support. We are not de-motivated  at all. We believe Moonga K is  unique, and absolutely sensational, he is just so professional for a 13-year-old," Beukes said in an interview yesterday.

Beukes feels the boy would benefit tremendously by entering the South African academy, which she says, has a fantastic reputation for  giving excellent academic schooling as well as first-rate musical training.

The choir has  toured worldwide, even singing behind the former Iron Curtain and for the Pope at the Vatican City, Rome. The school is described as multi-cultural and multi-lingual offering the boys classical, jazz, African and pop music lessons, as well as creating a diverse repertoire and breaking down cultural and musical barriers.
