PERTH rapper Macmillan Muyola, better known as Afroking, is lending his talents to a great international cause this Saturday night.

A number of African-style musicians will perform at Clancy’s Fish Pub in Fremantle as part of Beat the Streets, a fundraiser for Evie Grace Foundation.

Money raised will go towards the Perth-based foundation’s goal of more than $200,000 to build a new centre in Kenya to house street kids.

Evie Grace Foundation founder Maddi Kent first volunteered to help in Kenya when she was 19 and this time last year, the charity she started was incorporated.

“We rent a centre at the moment but it’s falling apart,” she said. “We have 117 boys at the moment and we have more coming up to the gate.”

Muyola was an enthusiastic supporter.

“It’s making a big difference,” he said. “When you see the charity page and the videos, it’s organic and genuine so that drew me in.”

Tickets are available via the foundation’s Facebook page or Eventbrite.
