Jamaican dancehall star Busy Signal has confirmed his performance in Malawi at the Sand Festival in Salima on October 31.
Best known for hits like Dreams of Brighter Days, Come Over, The Gambler and Reggae Music Again, Signal, whose real name is Glendale Goshia Gordon, confirmed the upcoming concert through social media networks.
“Busy Signal Live in Malawi on Saturday the 31st of October. Sand Festival. HOTTED!! TURF!!,” he wrote on Facebook and Twitter accounts.
The artist is the headliner of the festival which takes place at Livingstonia Beach from October 30to November 1.
The agency working with the festival organisers to bring the artist, Big Base Entertainment Limited believes Busy Signal’s confirmation answers all questions about his availability during the feast.
“The negativity surrounding the coming of Busy Signal to Malawi is so sad. People need to use social media for a benefit. Put technology into better use because these artists come not just to make money, they also live a legacy that encourages others to come there.
“My company has joined hands with promoters in making sure that artists that come to Zimbabwe and South Africa which is my focus now, also end up in Malawi. Let’s not spoil that and I am sure, Busy Signal’s confirmation rests the matter, ” said Big Base Entertainment Limited boss Spencer Mutemasango.
He was referring to an incident that happened days after Sand festival announced Busy Signal’s performance at this year’s event, a Malawian fan asked the artist on Twitter if indeed he was coming to Malawi.
Busy Signal is expected to arrive with Mutemasango together and his band on October 28 in Lilongwe.
“There will be 12 people travelling in total. Please buy tickets as it’s going to be big,” urged Mutemasango.
