Secular musician SkeffaChimoto and the Real Sounds Band return home today from Zambia where they performed over the weekend.
In an interview from Zambia yesterday before the last show scheduled for last evening, the ChinamulumaChakudahit-maker said they had successful shows on Friday and Saturday.
“When I am in Zambia, I feel like I am home because fans sing along as I perform. I am bigger here than in Malawi and here almost everyone wants to attend my show. It is not a secret, I like the support people in Zambia give to artists,” said the Lilongwe-based artist.
The shows were organised by Kakoz Promotions which is managed by a Malawian based in Zambia. The band had performances in Katete and Chipata.
The first show was on Friday night in Chipata at East Point which was jam-packed according to the musician.
On Saturday, the band travelled to Katete where they performed at Malo Gardens before returning to Chipata for a final show at Tennis Club yesterday.
“We prepared well for the trip and it was obvious at all shows that our performances were impressive. We also enjoyed good patronage at the shows. We left Malawi on Friday and we are returning home today,” said Skeffa.
The ChikondiChabodzastar said he took with him some copies of his new album, Chikondiwhich sold out during the first two shows.
Meanwhile, Skeffa who is bound to perform in the United Kingdom this weekend at a gala event organised by Malawians based in UK aimed at honouring successful Malawians who have excelled in various areas, said the future of the trip is uncertain as some travelling documents are yet to be processed.
“I am still in touch with the organisers of the trip, but it has transpired that we are supposed to process some additional papers. I am not sure if this will be achieved by Wednesday so that we can leave on Thursday,” said Skeffa.
