One of the country’s commercial banks FDH Bank has handed over a well constructed and fully stocked grocery store to legendary musician Giddes Chalamanda.
The plight of the 90 year- -old veteran musician of the “Buffalo Soldier” fame came to light some months ago after he did a mashap collaboration with the prolific singer Patience Namadingo who is the brand ambassador of FDH Bank.In the quest to alleviate the hardships that Chalamanda is facing, Namadingo engaged FDH Bank which built the grocery store for Chalamanda and it has stocked it too.
Speaking after handing over the facility to Chalamanda at Chalamanda’s base in Njuli ,Chiradzulu, the marketing manager for FDH Bank Ronald Chimchere said as a home grown bank they prioritize uplifting lives of locals. Also speaking at the function, Namadingo oozed excitement seeing that now the legendary singer has a reliable source of income.Namadingo said initially it was hard for the octogenarian to make ends meet but now the help is at the door step.
Expressing his joy the visibly happy grey haired musician commended FDH Bank for bailing him out. The store will also be offering FDH’s Banki Pakhomo services to the community around Njuli. –
