Malawians had until Wednesday to vote for Theo Thomson who is in United Kingdom trying to garner votes so that he might be able to perform at the Africa Unplugged Music Festival in Europe alongside some of Africaâ€™s popular performing artists.
The Africa Unplugged Music Festival is the biggest African concert in Europe ever and it will take place on Monday August 27 2012, at the Wembley Arena in UK.
Going by the slogan â€˜20 Acts 15 Nations 1 Micâ€™, Africa Unplugged will educate, motivate and inspire all by shedding light on mother Africa and the issues she faces. This includes genocide, poverty, corruption, war, HIV, water shortage and malaria.
â€œWe will celebrate the spirit of Africa through music, comedy and dance,â€ reads the Africa Unplugged website.
The Malawian musician put up his famous Kutentha music video on the Africa Unplugged websiteâ€™s Artists Competition page, where he was battling it out with over 40 other artists for the top spot. However, by late afternoon on Wednesday, Thomson had the most views on his video than the other artists, who include Malawiâ€™s Piksy (featuring Unamata) and Maskalâ€™s Udalire.
If Thomson gets enough votes, he will perform alongside Nigeriaâ€™s 2Face, Iyanya and Flavour, South Africaâ€™s Zahara and Zakes Bantwini, Zimbabweâ€™s McInity and Winky D, Angolaâ€™s Cabo Snoop and Ghanaâ€™s R2bees, among others. Â
