Club 24/7 near Kameza roundabout in Blantyre will Friday night play host to some of the country’s top urban music artists.
The music party, dubbed Stage Return Concert, has brought together Lilongwe-based music sensation Lulu together with his Mathumela Band, Piksy, R & B heartthrob Kell Kay, local dancehall budding artist Jay Jay Cee and veteran Saul Chembezi who will be backed by Vibes Band.
The show will be taking place a few kilometres away from Pa Zinziri Entertainment joint along the Chileka road where reggae band Black Missionaries will be performing on the same night. But organisers of the show have said the development has not affected their anticipations for their show.
Director for Club 24/7 MacDonald Soko said the lineup of artists that they have brought together gives them hope that their event will still attract a huge number of people.
“People have different tastes when it comes to music. As you can see the artists we have brought together have unique qualities and rarely perform together. Even the response we have received since we started promoting the show has given us much hope,” he said.
Lulu will make a return to the Commercial Capital after an appearance at Limbe Country Club a few weeks back and he said he wants to continue with his growing romance with his Blantyre audience.
He said: “For long people have complained that we start performing a little late. This time around I want to get on stage as early as possible. So, for all those who are planning to join the party late, you may find it over.”
Piksy said he is also relishing the opportunity to make a return on stage: “This will be my second show after a long time. I missed the live stage feeling and I know my fans missed me as well. I am looking forward to this one.”
