Pomp and a grand parade will characterise the arrival of Nollywood actor Van Vicker, who is expected to arrive in Malawi, at Kamuzu International Airport in Lilongwe.
Vicker will soon after arrival be driven direct to Blantyre destined for Sunbird Mount Soche to brace the tight business schedule.
The actor failed to arrive on Wednesday this week due to flight connection problems.
His mission of coming to Malawi is to entertain theatre lovers and act like a marketing tool for the country’s sole DStv provider, Multichoice Malawi, as was the case when Rita Dominic came on a similar ticket two years ago.
Vickerâ€™s coming to Malawi also aims at cementing business between the DStv provider and subscribers who enjoy watching Nollywood movies.
Marketing manager for Multichoice, Chimwemwe Nyirenda, said the actor will arrive this Friday after being in transit for days due to flight connection delays from Ghana, his home country.
“The cocktail party is on today before interacting with fun-seekers at after-party at Robins Park in Blantyre. What I can point out is that the whole programme remains the same except for the donations in Zomba,” Nyirenda said.
Lilongwe and Central Region-based subscribers will also be given a similar treat so that they share jokes and light moments with the Nollywood star.
Vicker will be driven to Lilongwe by road to date Central Region subscribers.
The Ghanaian ace, while in Blantyre, will attend a music performance by the country’s reggae outfit, the Black Missionaries, Lulu, Dan Lu and the Oga Family crew popular for their Minga mu Nsomba hit.
Like Patience Ozwokor and Desmond Eliot, Vicker is also to feature in a play done by the Rising Choreos Theatre Company, Well calculated, at Sunbird Capital Marquee.
This theatre group first staged the six-member play in 2010, but this time around comes back with more glitz and glamour when it reappears with musician Lucius Banda.
This would be Banda’s turning point to prove that he has theatrical skills that could take him to the movie industry as is the case with the now turned gospel artist Mlaka Maliro who used to feature in Tikuferanji soap on MBC-TV.
Vicker was born to a Ghanaian mother and a Dutch father in 1977. Since he started his career, he has received two nominations for best actor in a leading role and best up-and-coming actor at the African Movie Academy Awards in 2008.
