RED and Fastjet to launch a new song to help fight the AIDS Epidemic


A new song has been launched in support of a partnership recently formed between Fastjet and Aids organisation (Red) for World Aids Day. The song is by legendary singer-songwriter Oliver Mtukudzi, and proceeds from the track will be used to support the work of the Global Fund and their effort to fight Aids in Africa.

“The appeal in the song lies in the cross-generational impact that I hope it will have,” says Mtukudzi. “The more sales we have, the more funds we can generate to continue spreading the word about HIV prevention.”

Funds raised by the song will go towards  programmes that offer prevention, testing and treatment services.

“We have all been impacted by the disease in some way or another, and a continued concerted global effort to support prevention efforts has to be sustained.” adds Mtukudzi.

“It is our duty as Africans to continue contributing to the growth of our continent while ensuring a sustainable future for everyone. Partnering with (Red) and Oliver Mtukudzi for the Holiday project is our first step as brand toward contributing to an Aids-free generation.” concludes  Fastjet Chief Executive Officer Nico Bezuidenhout.
