a key be released several days for many years but importantly. the court order which i think is not also. in the security remains tight clashes between police and the exact his backers have rates fears that islamic movement of nigeria might turn to violent insurgency. now to the story of one by. and making a big difference in the kabera slum in nairobi there's a school for severely disabled children but there's no transport service to bring them there and the low income families concha for to make arrangements to stand decided he's going to do something about that stanley okin year's day starts early as he sets off to take his daughter to school. happy bosy bori had meningitis when she was 3 since then she has been unable to move or talk. stanley literally
specialized center that could offer his daughter the therapy she needed and he soon realised how difficult it is for disabled children and their parents in kibera to access proper care so he decided to help every day he collects kids from their homes and drives them to school. some of these children hit each other some hit the windows i know the hits himself. i want to about what's happening so i'm forced to pull over so i can control them before i can continue. doing the stuff like 40 families rely on the transport he provides without a kidney most parents would be forced to carry their children on their backs. i used to go on my back to school. and then. take the
train when sure she was poor and poor me. i even decided to leave her at home. but said only. good to any. that was. here at the mary rice center the children are able to socialize with each other and get the attention they need. this school specializes in helping children with disabilities and basic education is free to starve or been able to reach to more children especially especially those with physical challenges coming from cuba because previously were losing their which has been difficult because of the tear in which is available in the world. problems for and difficult to maneuver. and to some of them were to do they were killed in those cheated. okin uses his own money to maintain and fuel the
van most children come from families that cannot afford transportion. making a big difference in the lives of the children and their parents stanley is driven by a hope. with special care and therapy he thinks at least some of these children will one day enjoy a degree of independence. i always wanted to be a songwriter. great music perform it around the world. interesting people. travel. to see exciting places. and all of that i just want to. add that south african singer songwriter. by year or so not many can say they have serenaded nelson mandela and barack obama the cheek and she joins me now in studio welcome to date of the africa i'm so
excited that you're here and i watched you play perform at the concert house last night here in berlin and your guess it just has this feel good vibe right if you switch your pages to it but that's really all of the music that's deliberate that's very deliberate it's really on purpose growing up in south africa and i think i got a taste of life that was unsavory and i made a conscious choice that i didn't want to add any need to that is. the world and i found just shifting one's focus towards the positive actually makes for positive lifestyle fuel. we're going to talk more about your music in a 2nd but you know you've also become a champion for black women in a sense and i wondered why do you think that so many people relate with you as a role model in that sense i'd like to think i'm a champion for women period irrespective of color. and the reason that is being the case is because i've found that i've been so immense pated in my journey. i'm
a woman who runs a business and i've been in business for 15 years very empowered as a as a woman in as well that i really wanted for other women so it's really about sharing everything i've learned to my journey and i really think attitude is everything you know and so i put these things out in terms of everything i do out there in the world so out in the world of places you have traveled your music has taken you places but you are still sort of firmly rooted in african i wanted what is your vision for our continent. my greatest vision is for all of us to just be happy to be quite honest just know that our needs are met the just be happy and know that we can dream and have our dreams come true but i've also realize that it's not about waiting for the circumstances to change external there's a lot that one can do within oneself that will then influence how you engage with
life and i feel like that's a point of power for anyone and so that's really my focus is is to push that sort of agenda through education through exposure through networking through sharing. and yeah because i've just seen it work in so many scenarios that it's something i actually believe in. so your last album you release it in 2016 and i wondered if we get a scoop here and did you are you working on any exciting projects at the moment in the collaboration what but you've got to go in knowing where you're going to mix thoughts we have to keep up with you. i spent about 3 months in the united states working with a grammy award winning produces and songwriters and really it's just to understand they process of creativity and i mean you've got global hits coming out of that part of the world and i really want to learn as well so. i have a body of work that we've worked on that does come from that it's very exciting
it's very different from everything i've done and i thought it's ok sometimes to just experiment just to see how that goes so the album is african american in everything for. me is an infusion of my roots as an african and of course that american flavor so it is quite poppy in modern in many ways but it still has that a sense of lira and an undeniable african flair to it so i really cannot wait to shared with everyone we can't wait to hear it i mentioned to the viewers when we when i introduced you that you performed for nelson mandela the youthful form that the inauguration of barack obama but i wonder that what has been your single most highlight in your career oh acing you know it's been 15 years. it's tough to pick one wow. well i guess performing for africa south africa's 1st black president and america's 1st black president i know that's true but it was quite a significant thing for me. and i guess if there's ever one more time is he going
at the world cup in south africa ok one of the most watched things ok with me we have a few seconds left but i have these very poor questions for you the 1st thing that comes to mind what talent would you most like to have. dancing so you don't believe that you know what they're so estate which living person do you most of my oprah winfrey ok which was a phrase do you most overuse. brilliant. and what is your. characteristic my my my my most mocked characteristic oh yes i would think it's my smile it is very good it also gives you a read to think that i thank you so much for coming to the chase happy for having me come back i hope. and that is it for now from news africa as always you can
