“At DOCAS they take care of a rare case of muscular dystrophy and in particular Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, the effect rarely go past the age of 25. “When I came across this, I was so touched and as Kayse Connect we are taking this opportunity to share with DOCAS in giving these children the best,” he said. He added:

“With DOCAS the biggest issue is the condition which affect mainly boys and it’s not known by many, having said that the life expectancy for these boys broke my heart. “It made me reflect and imagine if it was me that I would not have much time, so we decided to give the little we have.

Asked why they chose HICC, Elton said: “We picked HICC because it’s an indoor venue, since it’s a rainy season, we are planning on music lovers to enjoy without fear of the rains and it’s central to many. “We want to put musicians on the map as much as we can, help them grow and give them a platform to shine.”
