The ten-year-old rocker is making love to one of his favorite musicians, Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello, who sent him one of his guitars after seeing its cover
his 1999 anthem “Guerrilla Radio”.
“Hi Nandi, this is Tom Morello. I wish you had this guitar as a gift for you to make such fantastic rock and see someone swinging so big that so young really gives me hope for the future.” Morello said a video
to the young prodigy of rock.
“I want to hear a lot more of your music in the future. You have a lot of soul and there’s a little bit of power here to go.”
Nandi, from Ipswich, England, was seen watching the video with her hands over her mouth before opening the case to reveal a brand new black Fender Soul Power Stratocaster, Morello’s author guitar.
“Wow, from the real Tom Morello!” she cried. “Thank you so much for such a beautiful guitar, I can’t wait to wrap you up!”
The young multi-instrumentalist had posted a video on May 31 of her performance of her own version of the rock band’s song, with signs saying “fight racism” and “Black Lives Matter” on her instruments.
John Bushell, Nandi’s father, called the situation unreal and said the family is still “in a state of shock and overwhelmed by Morello’s generosity.
“It was an honor to receive a guitar from one of the greatest guitarists of all time,” Nandi told CNN. “I am very happy to help raise awareness of the Black Lives issue and to help end racism! With love and respect, equality for all.”
Nandi, who has been vocal in his support for the Black Lives Matter movement and the fight against racism and injustice, also received
a custom purple Fender Stratocaster. For each artist who creates a record of artists, Fender makes a donation to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund.
