UK-based veteran crooner Kanda Bongo Man has also not been left behind in the online campaign to support victims of the volcanic eruptions. He has been working closely with Tabilulu Productions on this online venture.

Kanda Bongo Man is making a gradual return to live  performances after live concerts were suspended globally due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

During a recent interview Kanda Bongo Man revealed that he is due to launch a new album that he has been working on during the pandemic.

According to Lubangi Muniania of Tabilulu Productions, they have set up a widespread awareness raising campaign on social media and in the main stream media to mobilize financial support for the people on the ground.

“We are inviting all fans of Congolese music and others to join us in this noble cause," Lubangi said.
