Mafunyeta, Malawiâ€™s dance hall artist, stole the show at Piksyâ€™s Lilongwe album launch when he mesmerised fans with lyrical content and erotic dancing antics on Saturday.
After performances by Blak Jak, Biriwiri, Wendy Harawa and Armstrong, Piksy came on stage and invited Lilongwe-based Mafunyeta to join him for a joint performance.
The dreadlocked artist went straight to business by singing his song Ka Girl while jumping up and down. For some minutes, he danced with a female fan, gyrating behind her, sending the crowd into uncontrollable jubilation while dancing along.
At one point, Piksy stood hands folded, admiring Mafunyeta who was on cloud nine mixing fun and pleasure, as he engaged the audience.
â€œThatâ€™s Mafunyeta for you,â€ the composed Piksy said as Mafunyeta left the stage while fans shouted for more.
Piksy (Evance Zangazanga) was launching his Maso where hundreds of Malawiâ€™s youthful generation who thronged Portuguese Club gave a nod to the artistsâ€™ debut album.
The fun continued with a few song performances by Piksy, including Airtel Malawi Limitedâ€™s anthem Yabooka which he did while splashing the mobile phone companyâ€™s top up cards.
The company, just like in Blantyre, sponsored Piksyâ€™s Lilongwe album launch by virtue of him being its brand ambassador.
Despite darkness slowly covering the skies, revellers were not put off and continued jiving. Sir Lucius Bandaâ€™s performance was another spectacle as he mixed songs from his early days to his latest albums.
When asked what delayed the show, Piksy said: â€œSome things happen when you least expect them to. But I am glad that finally I have launched my album in Lilongwe. The turnout was simply awesome considering that we did little in as far advertising the event was concerned. I never expected this huge crowd. I should be going to Mzuzu before the end of the year, then we will take Maso to districts such as Mulanje and Mwanza.â€
