Sine; former 2009 Africa Star winner in Gabon seems to have had a time of his life with an outstanding performance at the "Malaria No More" event hosted in Hillary Clinton's honour in New York.
"Malaria No More" was born out of a discussion between Chernin, Chambers
and former MPAA chief Jack Valenti at Allen & Co.’s annual Sun
Valley conference for moguls and billionaires. Further study made
Chernin convinced that malaria could be eradicated in his lifetime.
But because the disease that still kills a
child every 60 seconds (mostly in Africa) is entirely preventable and
treatable, he brought a CEO’s mentality to launching an organisation with a clear
business plan to raise awareness, spread low-cost treatment and most of
all, preventative measures such as distributing insecticide-treated
nets to keep mosquitos away.
Here is what a journalist had to say about Sine's performance:
"The evening closed with an upbeat perf from Cameroon pop star Sine,
whose ability to shake his rump in skin-tight pants was the subject of
much discussion as attendees made their way out of the Time Warner
Center. The event raised more than $1.2 million..."
What a way to end a show!! Good job Sine.
