Makeni’s very own Stunt Man, the renowned leading vocalist of the Eclectic Theater Music Company, is embarking on a transformative mission to change lives through the power of edutainment.
With a strong focus on promoting the health and well-being of pregnant women and children under the age of five, Stunt Man has taken his talents to the Bombali District in Sierra Leone.
In collaboration with CHAMPS Sierra Leone, supported by the Ministry of Health and Sanitation, Stunt Man is spearheading a campaign that targets Bombali Sebora and Bombali Siari Chiefdoms in the northern region of Sierra Leone. His goal is to raise awareness and instigate positive behavioral changes that will ultimately benefit the health of mothers and children in the region.
At the heart of this initiative lies an educative and soothing song that underscores the significance of accessing Antenatal Care (ANC) services during pregnancy. Stunt Man’s soulful melodies are skillfully woven with motivational messages aimed at encouraging families to seek medical attention for sick children promptly. Moreover, the campaign emphasizes the importance of exclusive breastfeeding for the overall health and well-being of infants.
The charismatic Stunt Man boasts a massive fan base across Sierra Leone and has earned multiple accolades, including the remarkable achievement of winning two prestigious awards in a single edition of the National Entertainment Awards in 2021—an accomplishment no other provincial artiste can claim.
Working hand in hand with his music label, Eclectic Theater Music Company, Stunt Man and his team have developed a well-rounded campaign revolving around three primary objectives. These objectives encompass enhancing the quality and uptake of ANC services, reducing the prevalence of stillbirths and infant mortality, and combating malnutrition in the region.
The power of edutainment as a medium for social change cannot be understated. Stunt Man’s fusion of entertainment and education aims to uplift communities, impart vital health-related knowledge, and ultimately create a positive impact on the lives of pregnant women and young children.
Sierra Leone is witnessing a unique endeavor that harnesses the influence of a talented artist to address critical health issues and drive positive change. Stunt Man’s dedication to promoting maternal and child health through his music serves as an inspiring example of how art and culture can play a pivotal role in shaping a healthier and more vibrant society. As his melodic messages resonate across the region, the hope is that more lives will be touched, and more families will adopt healthier practices for the betterment of the community as a whole.
