Musician Faith Mussa has organised a virtual concert to entertain people missing his live performances due to restrictions put in place to avert the spread of Covid-19.
In an interview, Mussa said the concert would be online and people would pay a minimal fee to get a link and watch.
“People should expect great music. My playlist will be a surprise, but I have selected the songs that I have enjoyed performing live over the years,” he said.
Mussa said as a virtual show, he was aware that a lot of people from all over the world will be watching hence, he will try to ensure that he is catering for them all.
“I cannot afford to make mistakes. I have to appeal to people from all over the world and its challenging as I have to give it my best,” said the Mdidi hit maker.
Mussa said he has invested a lot to put the show together, but he was looking at the bigger picture, which is to stay connected with his fans.
“What is important for me is to make sure that I do not lose the connection that I have with my fans from all around the world. That is why I said the fee is very minimal. We just want a little commitment from our fans,” he said.
Mussa, therefore, said the virtual show was his gift to his fans that he knows are worried about the Covid-19 pandemic.
In a separate interview, Mussa’s manager Sam Chiwaka said the reaction from fans around the world was encouraging, saying they are selling tickets to fans in Norway and United Kingdom, among other countries.
“We are opening the lines for people to buy tickets in Malawi on Monday [today] and then we will send them a link to watch,” he said.
He added that this would be a pure live performance not pre-recorded as some have been doing in the past.
“We want to give the audience a real life experience and those with smart TVs will enjoy it more,” said Chiwaka.
The Lockdown Live Concert will be held on July 9 at 7.30pm UK Time and 8.30pm Malawi time. n
