Malawiâ€™s stage sensation Dan Lu meets his Ndeâ€™feyo matchesâ€”Armstrong and Piksyâ€”in a three-stop tour of South Africa this week.
According to their itinerary, the threesome was supposed to depart Sunday for shows which will run from Thursday to Saturday in Johannesburg.
This is the fourth time Dan Lu is trekking to the gold-producing country since the unveiling of his Shuppie debut album in Cape Town in 2006. He performed in Johannesburg on the wings of Cousin in 2008 and No Size last year.
The Part of Life hitmaker promised to give his immigrant fans a feel of the upcoming release So What in which he takes sides with those doing menial jobs beyond the borders.
“It is always special to perform in South Africa. Iâ€™ll make the trip with two members of my band [The Rockers]â€”brother turned backing vocalist Hope Lufani and bassist Peter Boloma. We have prepared thoroughly and we hope to blend smoothly with our backers in South Africa,” said Dan Lu in an interview on Sunday.
He said they were on a bus heading south for shows in Johannesburg and Cape Town this coming weekend.
“Malawians and others in South Africa should brace up for fun and more fun. We will give the best,” he said.
Monday morning, Piksy said they were still en route to Egoli. “We are still on the bus, me and my crazy people, set to dish out the music,” he said.
Ndeâ€™feyo Entertainment label co-director Khumbo Kabuzi Mhango on Saturday took to the mini-blogging site Facebook to wish them a successful tour.
Piksy, formerly of Atumwi duo of Sendeza fame, is hogging the headlines with his first solo album, Maso, while Armstrong is flounting the hit single Ndimakukonda.
The performances have been organised by Fire Flames.
