Mr. Magigi, the Zambian musician behind the popular song Nilibe Pulobulemu, is coming to perform in Malawi courtesy of Impact Events.
He will perform alongside Malawian and Zambian artists in a cultural and music exchange programme dubbed Malawi vs Zambia.
Coordinator of Impact Events, Wendy Harawa, said the exchange programme is aimed at strengthening partnership between artists of the two neighbouring countries.
“As Impact Events, we are committed to uplifting entertainment, culture and partnership among artists from around the globe. And this time around we have invited artists from Zambia to face Malawian counterparts in a series of performances we have arranged in different venues,” she said.
Harawa said the cultural and music exchange programme, which will also be replicated in Zambia, is part of Easter celebration.
“We want Malawians to celebrate the Easter holiday in grand style by bringing the best entertainment. On the list of performers from the two countries are Lucius Banda and Magigi of Nilibe Pulobulemu fame,” she said.
Nilibe Pulobulemu is one of the hits of the moments that have taken the country’s entertainment industry by storm. The song is enjoying massive airplay on both the airwaves and entertainment centres such as Night Clubs.
Harawa said the choice of Nilibe Pulobulomu star to come to Malawi is timely and strategic.
“The funseekers in Malawi deserve programmes that meet their current needs as far as entertainment is concerned. So, this is the reason why we have the Nilibe Pulobulemu hitmaker on the menu. We don’t compromise on quality when it comes to current affairs and satisfying people’s entertainment needs,” said Harawa.
The Easter shows, which kickstart this Friday at Ngom’s Park in Liwonde, will feature Banda, Mr. Magigi, Nepman, Organised Family (Zambia) , Lambani Dube and Smack.
On Saturday, the Malawi vs Zambia music party goes to Blantyre’s Chezi Ntemba International Club before Wakawaka in Lilongwe on Sunday.
Commenting of the initiative, Nepman said exchange programmes help to reinforce stage work and skill.
In February this year, Impact Events also organised a Valentine’s show where a Caribbean reggae and R&B singer Judy Boucher performed at Bingu International Conference Centre (BICC) in Lilongwe.
