Chana hoping to stir up good with new series
MORE artists are sharing their private lives with fans, especially on social media. With a surge of reality shows from the likes of Somizi Mhlongo to the upcoming look into Being Bonang – a reality show about the presenting queen herself – real life is what people want to watch on television. Now rapper Khuli Chana,
is joining the bandwagon, but for a different cause.
He will be releasing a documentary in partnership with Red Bull Amaphiko that charts the challenges faced by communities and four of its social change-makers.
From Sunday, the Konka hitmaker will broaden his horizons by drawing attention to the positive changes being made through the The Rise of Us documentary, to be aired exclusively on Red Bull TV.
The 34-year-old has taken on this latest venture to show what the good citizens are doing.
“My hope is that the documentary will inspire others to do the same,” said Chana.
In a preview of the documentary, he talks about how he will introduce the country to trailblazers who are redefining success.
He said: “When I see the meaningful way in which these social change-makers have turned nothing into something, I too begin to believe that we can create a better world. So, my journey has just begun.”
The four social entrepreneurs he will be spending time with are Thabang Mabapa, Samantha Ngcolomba, Thato Kgatlhanye and Misha Teasdale.
Through their stories, which include castor oil production in the making of biodiesel and free legal advice for female victims of abuse, the award-winning rapper will promote their positive efforts that often go unnoticed.
“If you are not doing anything to change anyone’s life, then what’s the point? Set your soul on fire and contribute,” he said. “The world is waiting. Your awakening, your journey. The awakening begins when you recognise the fire in you.”
The documentary starts airing on Sunday.
