NYC Gospel Hip-Hop Artists Playing for EAHS Student Memorial Concert

EAHS student Lewis Ogioba's memory will be honored on what would have been his 16th birthday with a free concert event on Saturday at the Forks Township Community Center.

Running from 5 to 9 p.m., the "Lewis Ogioba Outreach Concert" will feature live gospel hip-hop artists and singers, including Righteouz Knight, Apimael El Guerrero, Hassan, Swinn D Example, Sanctified, Redeemed, J Sky Walker and DJ Prophetic, along with spoken word artists and dancers, from Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York.

An open mic, free food and free giveaways are also planned for the event. The concert is being organized and hosted by Angelo Laro Maldonado.

Ogioba died unexpectedly on August 3, 2011 while playing basketball, of an undetected heart ailment.

"We want his death to be a means of life for everyone who cared and loved this young man, and a comfort to the community that is still trying to figure out,'Why?' says an announcement on the event's Facebook page.

The Forks Community Center is located at 500 Zucksville Road, just off Sullivan Trail in Forks Township.
