“I feel privileged to contribute my gift of art to the province. What I will be doing is my calling. I know a lot of people know Linomtha the singer. I thank God for His gift of art. What fulfils me in life the most is touching people’s lives, and being a part of life’s journey through art forms, be it music or poetry.”
