Masud Sadiki teams up with the University of the West Indies to make presentation as part of History and Heritage Week
ZIZ News…Feb 15, 2012 — The History and Heritage Week of Activities 2012 is being celebrated under the theme of ‘Celebrating the Contributions of our Everyday Heroes and Heroines to our History and Heritage’.
In keeping with this theme The University of the West Indies (UWI) Open Campus St. Kitts and Nevis will be hosting a public presentation by local artiste Masud Sadiki entitled ‘Masud Sadiki: My Life in Music’. This event will take place at the UWI Open Campus St. Kitts Site at the Gardens, Basseterre on Thursday 23 February 2012 at 7:30pm.
Masud’s story is one of a courageous and passionate individual who has embraced the challenge of building a full-time career on the foundation of his musical talent and his commitment to his community. His story is an inspiring narrative of an individual who has embraced the challenge of transforming the Kittitian entertainment industry he inherited as a teenager, from part-time enjoyment to full-time employment.
Masud’s unwavering commitment to expressing his theme of universal peace and love through music has enabled him to share the stage with international artistes such as Wyclef Jean, Lucky Dube, Beenie Man and Buju Banton.
In 2010 Masud released a song entitled ‘A Stitch in Time’ which was used in the United Nations Secretary General’s ‘Unite to End Violence Against Women’ Campaign. The telling of this story is therefore of particular importance to our discussions of history and heritage as it will enable us to examine what was, record what is and possibly anticipate what will be.
It will also remind us that we are surrounded by people in St. Kitts and Nevis who regularly accept the call to perform heroic acts – no matter how big or small. All are invited and encouraged to attend.
