Omawumi in Kenya for Mortein Malaria Prevention Campaign

Nigerian singer and former Idol West Africa finalist, Omawunmi, arrived Nairobi, Kenya on Wednesday 2, May 2012 in continuation of Mortein Malaria Prevention Campaign which commenced in Nigeria days ahead of the recently commemorated World Malaria Day. The Kenya tour, an initiative of Reckitt Benckiser, makers of Mortein, began from Pumwani Maternal hospital in Nairobi on Thursday 3, May 2012 saw Omawunmi take the malaria prevention campaign to different hospitals dedicated to the care of women and children using the newly produced song to communicate the message.  

This follows the launch of the campaign in Lagos, Nigeria with a visit to the Lagos State Deputy Governor, Mrs. Adejoke Orelope-Adefulire and the presentation of gift to the first baby born on the World Malaria Day by the Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Jide Idris.
 

The singer who is known for her single 'If You Ask Me' has recorded a campaign song for Mortein Malaria Prevention Campaign produced by Cobhams Asuquo. The song is dedicated to pregnant women and children who are the most vulnerable to malaria.

Her visit is to launch the campaign in Kenya to get mothers involved in the fight and donate funds towards the purchase of mosquito nets that will be distributed to hospitals in Kenya.

Omawunmi and her maternity gown style of dressing. She's got a great voice. But Linda o, the way you go about dis omawunmi-mortein stuff, one would think she's doing it for free. Mtscheeew. If she likes she shud go to kenya, abegi. With the kind of money I'm sure they pay her, I'll even go to pakistan to help prevent malaria.
