Over 22 Nasheed (Islam music) artists in the country will this Sunday gather at Soche Technical College to showcase their talents.
Ali Blessings Idi, executive director of Deen Impact, said they organised the contest for Muslim youth to propagate their religion and promote unity among muslims in the country.
“Deen Impact is an initiative for Muslim youth to encourage each other to promote unity among all Malawian artists regardless of their religion affiliations.
“The winner will walk away with K50 000, runner-up K30 000 and third-placed will receive K20 000. These winners will be determined by three experienced panellists,” said Idi.
The judges will be looking at stage performance, and content.
The 22 artists went through registration exercise for two weeks that was closed on 11 July.
Idi said Deen Impact has a lot to offer, saying this competition is one of the many initiatives that are coming but was quick to call for more support from companies as well as individuals.
“We have plans to support and promote fellow youths in the country but we lack financial muscle and we are appealing to all well-wishers to come and support our initiatives.
Idi, therefore, called on all Nasheed lovers to come and patronise the event since entrance is free and enjoy the body building exercise by Yasin Swedi commonly known as Ichocho. n
