Parent24 has partnered with Nal'ibali to make audio stories easily accessible to parents and their little ones at bedtime. 


Lizo is a young, homeless boy who lives on the streets of Cape Town. He has no family and no money and he sings to passers-by on street corners and outside businesses in the hope of earning some money.

One day, a member of a carnival band hears Lizo singing and invites him to join the band.
