Dancing, jumping and cheering characterised the mood at Kabumba Hotel in Salima during Makhadzi’s early Saturday morning performance at the Hangout Music Festival.
Coming weeks after making headlines for her classy performance during the Sand Music Festival in Mangochi, Makhadzi was a darling to watch during her one-hour marathon of amazing tunes and choreography supported by her energetic dancing team.
The artist, who arrived hours before her second appearance in Malawi within a short period, was welcomed on the stage by a cheerful audience shouting her name.
Capitalising on a famous and trending phrase ‘Kuipatsa Moto’, the South African artist who calls herself the African Queen amazed fans with her non-stop jovial and energetic stage performance while interacting with the patrons.
Despite performing a dozen of her famous hits, including Zwiivhuya, and Limpopo, the artist kept dodging her fans who continuously kept requesting for Ghanama, a trending song among local patrons.
After satisfying her fans with an energetic performance of Ghanama, Makhadzi thanked patrons for what she described as a warm welcome during her two visits.
Commenting on Makhadzi’s performance, Rodrick Mtika of Salima described the act as amazing and memorable.
He said the artist did not perform as if she arrived just hours before.
He said: “We have seen football players failing to impress in the name of fatigue, but Makhadzi left fatigue aside just to impress her fans.”
Also performing on the opening day were Mwanache, Bianca, DJ Maya, Piksy, and Dev Mak, among other local artists.
Apart from Makhadzi, other international headliners at this year’s festival were Mr. Brown, Mapara a Jazz, Professor and DJ Obuza.
