The University of Zambia Student Union (UNZASU) in conjunction with the Christian Inter-fellowship Forum (C.I.F) hosted the first ever Gospel Concert on campus last week Friday.
C.I.F President Jonathan Sichinsambwe said that Gospel Concerts /Bashes are of great benefit to young-stars in schools as they help students and youths at large to know who holds their lives than circular entertainments that expose them to drunkenness and sexual immorality that lead to early pregnancies among others.
“It has been the desire of the whole Christian populace on campus to hold a gospel concert as it has been so much of circular concerts that are potential destructors morally for students around campus which is not the case with Christian bases,” he said.
Mr Sichinsambwe stated that the positive attitude that the Students’ Union rendered towards such a remarkable event through one of it’s leaders ‘Smoke’ was something worthy of praising and appealed to the union that it should not end in 2017 but continue even in the years to come.
He alluded that it is of great value to realize that a human being is a tripled being made of the spirit, the soul and the body and that people therefore need salvation in their lives.
“Our faith as Christian fellowships on campus is that such events should continue because it is a very good project and this shows restoration to see the Students’ Union confide to work with a body of faith and ultimately it will enhance good unity here at the university,” he stated.
Furthermore, Adamson Daka, a third year student in the School of Education added that it is of great value to have such great concerts that consider the spiritual aspects of students in higher learning institutions like UNZA than always attending to circular bashes.
Other than students, in attendance were Bishop Eddy Mulenga, Pastor Patrick Osagie, Bishop Reuben Sambo and Gospel artists such as Skillz, Bornface, Trina, and Weston.
