Dr. Mutua have declared this coming weekend (Friday to Sunday) a "Firirinda Weekend" in honour and support of the ailing author of the beautiful song Mzee Dickson Munyonyi.
He says, "DJs in all social events are hereby requested to play Firirinda and encourage revelers and fans to donate towards the medical bill of the veteran musician who, we are reliably informed, is undergoing medical treatment."
