Ecstasy filled the air when Big Brother Stargameâ€™s Downville Diner was last weekend converted into a disco dance floor.
Malawian DJ Malick brought maximum entertainment into the house with his mesmerising beats. The housemates enjoyed every second of the party as scintillating Hip Hop, Kwaito and Malawian beats blasted from the speakers, sending the downvillers into a wild dancing frenzy.
DJ Malick was given 60 minutes to perform and entertain the housemates and he put up a splendid performance, much to the amazement of the Starmates and the public.
FM 101 DJ Masuzgo Msiska, popularly known as DJ Malick on radio and in clubs, did Malawi proud with his impressive, sizzling performance on Saturday night when he was the official DJ for the Big Brother party.
Come Sunday, the Malawian was at it again. The Live Eviction Show was jam-packed with explosive performances from the cream of African talent.
Headlining the Live Show was Ghanaâ€™s Manifest who swayed the audience with his lyrical prowess.
As usual, the gorgeous emcee IK pulled off a stunning performance that had the excited audience craving for more.
DJ Malick on the other hand, set the stage on fire only a couple of hours after spinning incredible tunes during the debaucheries Saturday night party, which saw the Downvillers showing off all kinds of dance moves.
DJ Malick said in an interview during the week from South Africa that he could not believe he had performed at such a big stage.
â€œJust a thought of it was a huge feeling. This made me make thorough preparations like consulting DJs who performed in the past. I am the third Malawian DJ to perform at Big Brother Africa shows after DJ Pink Panther and DJ Boo respectively,â€ he said.
Being conscious of the fact that millions of viewers from the 14 participating countries and the rest of Africa were watching his performance was more than enough to send chills down his spine. Said DJ Malick, â€œAt first it was quite scary, but once I was there, I knew one thing was for sure: There was no turning back and then it became exciting.â€
â€œIf I were to conduct a self assessment, I would say my performance was alright although, personally, I donâ€™t think I really got to the level I wanted because of few things that I was told to change from my original plan,â€ he said.
The Malawian DJ added that although the approach to the two shows was the same, he loved more the Sunday live eviction show which saw South Africaâ€™s model Barbz being evicted.
â€œDuring the Sunday show, I was given the players I was comfortable with which I had requested for prior to the show,â€ he said.
â€œThings would have been different [on Saturday night] if I were given the players I had requested for. It could have been a very big relief to me because I had been training on the players I had requested for, but I got something different,â€ he added. He further said after the performances, he met Malawians and people from other countries such as South Africa in Johannesburg who said they had enjoyed both shows.
Any lessons leant?
â€œOh yes, a lot has been learnt but right now my focus is on the future. I had the pleasure of meeting a couple of important people who can take me to greater heights and achieve much more. I believe that in life, critics help a lot in your career than positive remarks because you are able to learn from your mistakes and get to a better level of perfection,â€ he said.
