Musician Faith Mussa says he will use his performance at this year’s BMW Foundation EDB forum to show the world that Malawi has talent.
In an interview, Mussa said he is grateful that the foundation recognised that Malawi has talent by giving him a platform to impress the world.
“I would have loved to travel to Berlin, Germany, where the event is taking place, but with Covid-19 I will perform virtually,” he said.
The Mdidi creator said on the last day of the conference on July 2, he will perform three songs titled Ndi Konkuno, Mdidi and Waiting.
“Ndi Konkuno is a song about inclusion and acceptance. Waiting is a song that talks about hope, saying that no matter what we are going through, better days are going to come,” said Mussa.
In a statement, Mussa’s manager Sam Chiwaka said the virtual conference on the subject of equity, diversity and belonging where Mussa will perform starts on June 28 and ends on July 2.
“BMW Foundation was impressed by the vibe and music Faith Mussa performs from his previous tours in Germany; hence, they engaged him to perform at this function,” he said.
Chiwaka said Mussa will not only perform but also give a short presentation of his music in relation to the subject of the conference.
In his communication, Michael Geissler of BMW Foundation wrote to Mussa telling him about his appreciation of his live performances.
“We loved the vibe of your performances that were shared with us,” he said.
The BMW Foundation EDB week is an annual event which brings various leaders together to discuss issues surrounding equity, diversity and belonging.
