|Hakuna Matata Hit Maker Appeals For Medical Help by Kenyans247(1): Wed 09, December, 2020 07:12pm|
Hakuna Matata hitmaker Teddy Kalanda Harrison has appealed to the public for help in raising funds to cater for surgery.
Kalanda, who is one of the founding members of the Them Mushrooms music band, has been confined to a wheelchair for the last two years and is in dire need of corrective surgery on his leg.
He explained that his doctor warned him about the possibility of him suffering paralysis due to his condition.
"The doctor told me I would be paralysed from my waist to my legs, after an x-ray showed that three of my discs had been damaged.
"I stayed in the hospital for about two months, but I still need to undergo surgery," explained Kalanda.
Some of Kalanda's famous tune include Jambo Bwana, Habari Gani? which became Kenya’s tourism anthem.
His doctor says he needs specialised treatment, and believes he can soon return to full fitness and even walk as he is not that old.
Katanga's family is appealing to the Government to help former musicians and sportsmen who placed Kenya on the map by launching a programme to cater for their needs during their sunset days.
"Hakuna Matata is a song that has promoted Kenya internationally. It has also been used a lot in the promotion of tourism around the country," stated the founding producer of Big Matata Productions.
The musician hopes that he can one day return to the stage and entertain his fans like he used to back in the days.
Musicians have had to grapple with financial challenges especially during the pandemic. The recent death of Luo Musician Lady Maureen and many others clearly summarizes and industry in distress.
