AFTER a bit of a break African Musicians Against HIV-Aids and Kwaito Nation will meet at Uncle Tom's Hall in Orlando, Soweto, tomorrow at noon.

The meeting is about Amaha and Kwaito Nation's comeback and will discuss launching a new housing project. It will culminate in the handing over of keys to senior citizens.

It will also discuss the resumption of festivals across the country that have made a very significant difference to people's lives and also kept the wolf from the doors of some musos.

"We identified some grannies who desperately needed houses. We are happy to say some of them will now move into their new homes," Doc Shebeleza said.

" The grannies are from Snake Park near Dobsonville, Johannesburg, Sedibeng in the Vaal, Ekurhuleni and Tshwane.

"After this we will goto Limpopo, KwaZulu-Natal and Mpumalanga.

"The housing project will assist our people and we hope it stimulates business and other well-heeled people to dig deep into their pockets to meet the government halfway."

Shebeleza said the food parcels and wheelchair donations will continue. Festival dates will be announced soon.

"To date, we have donated 600 wheelchairs," Shebeleza said. "People who support our festivals must know that their money is being put to good use."

Amaha will also continue educating people about drug and alcohol abuse, teen pregnancy and HIV-Aids.

Artists in the festivals line-up will include Ntando, Solly Moholo, Hashi Elimhlophe, Stitch, Deborah Fraser, the SABC Choir, Winnie Mashaba and Doc Shebeleza.

Amaha is an organisation of top jazz, gospel, traditional, hip-hop and kwaito musicians that include Stimela, Ringo Madlingozi, Rebecca Malope Zola, Mdu, Solly Moholo, Deborah Fraser, Oleseng, Malaika, Kabelo, Ihashi Elimhlophe, Bongo Muffin, Shebeleza, Arthur Mafokate and Pitch Black Afro
