Two local rap heavyweights have suspended their plans to hold musical concerts at the country’s biggest stadiums.
Dubbed Fill Up shows, Fredokiss was scheduled to fill Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre on March 28 while Gwamba was eyeing Bingu National Stadium in Lilongwe on a date to be announced.
However, the two shows have been put on hold due to Covid-19, both Gwamba and Fredokiss have confirmed.
“With this whole corona thing, I want everything to settle down first then I proceed with the shows. I don’t want a scenario where I have set a date and start investing in the show then end up postponing,” he said.
Gwamba claimed that for the Mzuzu Stadium show, he spent about K9 million on billboards and deposits for almost everything, but ended up postponing the event.
“So, we will wait for the Covid-19 to die down, then will start with shows,” he said.
On plans to do more Facebook live shows as he did recently with a Sorry for Covid gig, the award-winning artist asked fans too watch out.
“I’m planning something big very soon,” Gwamba said without giving more details.
Fredokiss, on the other hand, asked his fans to be hopeful beyond the Covid challenges.
“See us making history. You see, God doing the impossible through us. See victory in despair. See yourself being part of a generation that is making history,” said the Malamulo a mu Ghetto hitmaker.
He said his team has put all promotional activities on hold until they are sure of the dates.
“The stadium manager also communicated on the same. Our Fill Up Kamuzu Stadium show is still on but with Covid-19 issues, we are not doing promos because if things don’t change soon, we can change the dates.
“As soon as gatherings are allowed, we will definitely fill up Kamuzu Stadium,” he said.
The two musical concerts were billed to be among the big events in the first half of 2021.
