Malawi Music Club will meet in the capital, Lilongwe, next month to discuss the revival of public entertainment venues.
The board of the entertainment enthusiastsâ€™ club, founded by MC Studios director Chimwemwe Chikusa three months ago, is championing the return of live shows to State-owned venues such as Lilongwe Community Centre and Kamuzu Institute for Sports to give artists and fun seekers more affordable venues.
In an interview, Chikusa said he has approached the Ministry of Tourism and Culture on the cause and there are only two vacancies in the seven-sitter board which will draw the clubâ€™s roadmap during the December 1 meeting.
â€œWe are making progress on initiative. Five prominent fun lovers have joined us and we just want two more. We also have a documented plan for the initiative which has already received a nod from the Ministry of Tourism and Culture,â€ said Chikusa.
Recently, deputy director of arts Bernard Kwilimbe said he was happy with the music clubâ€™s initiative because government is planning to restore entertainment in public venues. He said his office is working hand in hand with the club to achieve the turnaround
According to Chikusa, the first meeting will debate the membership of the working committee and strategise for the first performance.
