That moment when couples get busy planning to have a fulfilling date on Valentine’s Day has come again. It is again that time when relationships break or lose track due to lies and dishonesty on the part of lovebirds who keep on lying about their whereabouts.
But as transparent as glass, events’ organisers have lined up activities to ensure couples celebrate the Valentine’s Day in style and without lying about their whereabouts.
This year’s Valentine’s Day falls on Sunday, Solomonic Peacocks have joined forces with poets to stage a Valentine’s show at Blantyre Cultural Centre (BCC).
Solomonic Peacoks’ director McArtthur Matukuta said the Valentine’s Day show is aimed at presenting lessons that people face in love.
“This is not just an ordinary show but one which has been designed to convey necessary lesions to lovers. So, it’s beyond entertainment,” said Matukuta.
He said Solomonic Peacocks will stage Four Lettered Word, a play that revolves around issues of love such as the fear of proposing.
On the poetry front, there will be performances by Sylvester Kalizang’oma, Hudson Chamasowa, Joseph Madzedze, Lukier Chikopa, Frank ‘Atcheya’ Naligonje, Pastor Junior, Mr. Malawi, Auntie Gate, Madalitso Nyambo, among others.
Lovers who find solace in music will be treated to a mixed show at Soche Technical College tomorrow where gospel will meet secular in a pre-Valentine’s Day party.
The line up secular musicians Khuzah Rampi, The Young Stone, Super Boys Band, Matusa, Twin M, Hastings Moffat and ThoLenkaw are expected to face gospel giant King James Phiri and Neligo Women’s choir.
“We have deliberately brought together gospel and secular musicians because love is enjoyed by everyone regardless of their music preferences of religius background,” said Khuzah Rampi, a member of the organising committee.
On Sunday, Musicians Union of Malawi (MUM)-Southern Region chapter have organised a Valentine’s concert slated at Chrichi Multipurpose Garden in Chitawira, Blantyre.
Are you sexy and single? This is an invitation only for you. A little soiree has been organised by Levels Inc, a Lilongwe-based group of professionals, to celebrate single life for Valentine’s Day at the Ufulu Garden’s pool.
Crafted-with-black, white, and a splash of gold décor and fantastic entertainment, Levels will be throwing a chic Valentine’s Party laced with comedy, live performances and DJs.
“It is an event for society’s singles, strictly 25 years and above to mingle. If you’re lucky, love turbulence may transpire. Comedian D Satha, the Pretty Thugs Dance Crew, DJ Pat, plus live entertainment and a date auction are all lined up for the single’s mixer party.
Lilongwe’s artistic house, Madsoc Theatre will also be another place to go to celebrate the Valentine’s Day with Airtel Trace Musioc Star winner Sam Mjura Mkandawire.
Apart from the music there will also be free dinner, photo shoot, games and competitions during the event.
Also tomorrow, Sunbird Livingstonia in Salima hosts a romantic Valentine’s Dinner and Dance in the Namalenje Restaurant themed ‘My Valentine Everyday forever.’
For a very small fee, clients will enjoy a buffet style dinner and a disco spiced with activities such as dancing competition and best dressed couple contest.
While Sunbird Mount Soche and Sunbird Capital will both serve special meals in the Picasso’s and Mimosa restaurants respectively on the Valentine’s Day. These are strictly by reservation, so clients are urged to make their bookings as soon as possible.
So, whether one would to celebrate the day over a nice quiet meal or to put on their dancing shoes and kick their heels up all night long, Sunbird will probably have something suitable for clients this season. n
