Malawiâ€™s new singing sensation Armstrong makes his first appearance on the international stage next month when he performs in South Africa alongside five other Malawian youthful artists.
Scheduled to take place at three venues during the first weekend of November, the show has been organised by Fire Flames; an entertainment firm owned by South African based Kondwani Jere.
In separate interviews over the weekend, both Armstrong and the organisers confirmed he had accepted an invitation to perform in the rainbow nation.
â€œYes Armstrong is coming to perform here in Johannesburg as this is my desire to promote Malawian music and artists on the international stage. This is the driving force behind the three shows where Armstrong alongside Piksy, Dan Lu, former Malawi representative to
Africaâ€™s leading reality show Big Brother Amplified Lomwe, Jeddie I Tafari and Cooler man will perform,â€ said Jere.
The first show is on November 3 at the Afro Centric also called Tijuca, before hitting CafÃ© De Ossis on the following day. The last show will be at the De Guatar. Malawians living in South Africa need to be reminded of home sweet music and the show is one way of reaching to them. In future, Fire Flames would like to be the platform of those Malawian artists who want international recognition but cannot afford to do so due to limited financial resources,â€ explained Jere.
Armstrong on the other hand said the stakes are high being his first international show.
Said the Ndamusowa star: â€œI donâ€™t take this for granted and I know the expectations are high from people being my very first trip.â€
