Fiji Suva Musicians Committee Member and Vude Vibes Director Laisa Vulakoro says they have received $10,000 in donations from the Pacific Islands/Chinese Musicians in Wuhan and this will be utilized by over 50 of their financial members in the club.

She says the project was initiated by Sosefo Fatai who is a Tongan National and younger brother of Foloheni Curr, the wife of New Zealand High Commissioner to Fiji, Jonathan Curr.

The Vude Vibes Director says the remaining money will be utilized in the club as they have reached out to their fellow musicians during the COVID-19 lockdown.

Vulakoro adds their club has been assisting their members during the pandemic as their main source of living has been cut off due to the restrictions on social gatherings as they make their income through performing in ceremonies and functions.

The Vude Queen says local musicians in the country are using social media platforms to perform and receive fakawela from their viewers and supporters which has been assisting them through this pandemic.

Vulakoro says they are very grateful to Sosefa Fatai and the musicians around Wuhan for the initiative.
