Music is the universal language and you’ll see that in action on this Midday Connection
as Afrizo joins us. We’ll enjoy this musical group from Daystar University in Nairobi, Kenya, as they join us in the studio to perform music as well as give their impressions of their time in North America. We’ll look at struggles on the continent of Africa as well as hear songs of praise.
Afrizo is Daystar University’s musical group from Nairobi, Kenya. Afrizo (acronym for “African Zone”) features music from South, Central, and East Africa, drawing on rich African traditions sung in English, Swahili, and African tribal languages. The members of Afrizo are students at Daystar University and sing under the direction of celebrity singer and Daystar professor, Hellen Mtawali.
The goal of Afrizo’s tour is to raise scholarship funds for promising young people who wouldn’t otherwise be able to attend Daystar University. Daystar University in Nairobi, Kenya is one of the largest Christian liberal arts universities in Africa. It has over 4,400 students, and they come from over 20 African countries. Daystar emphasizes strong Christian faith combined with servant leadership. Its graduates serve in government, business, media, community development, education, the church and other fields in their home countries, becoming the next generation to transform Africa.
