The Standard Bank Joy of Jazz Concert to showcase South African Afro-soul sensation Zahara is getting positive response, and tickets have nearly sold out.
Zahara is expected to perform at the Chinese-built Presidentâ€™s Hotel in Malawiâ€™s capital, Lilongwe, on September 22.
She will perform alongside Wambali Mkandawire as part of celebrations for the bankâ€™s 42 years of operation in Malawi and 150 years of Standard Bank Group doing business in Africa.
The bankâ€™s head of marketing Linda Kachingwe-Sisya said tickets are sold through the bankâ€™s branches and during various activations in the capital. She could, however, not say how many tickets have been sold so far.
â€œOur customers and jazz lovers alike are very thrilled by the prospect of experiencing Zahara and Wambali performing together live on stage,â€ she.
Born Bulelwa Mkutukana, Zahara is an award winning singer-and songwriter who turned tables at the South African Music Awards in May when she scooped eight awards, including best female artist and best album award for her debut Loliwe.
