Upcoming Afro R&B star Armstrong Kalua finally launched his long awaited “Ndele” album at a colourful event held at the Sunbird Capital Hotel in Lilongwe on Sunday afternoon.
The show which registered a fair and impressive patronage despite having a number of other big musical shows in the capital city including that of top musician Lucious Banda and Makhirikhiri who were performing at the Lilongwe Golf Club.
Before Armstrong took to the stage for the official launch of his album, a lot of other artists including the Turmel, Nyau King Tay Grin, Biriwiri, Skeffa Chimoto, Malawi’s Queen of Ragga Wendy Harawa performed.
Harawa did a number of songs including her popular hits Unalonjeza and Sindilichoncho. Her dancing antics sent the whole audience gathered inside Marquee ablaze.
She later left the stage paving way to Biriwiri crew who also did well and attracted positive noise from the crowd more especially when they begun to sing their famous track Daily.
Tay Grin was also a marvel to watch after taking over the stage.
He sang a number of songs including Moto and Animal but it was the hit Two by Two which sent almost everyone inside the Marquee into toes.
Another Nde’feyo kid Piksy also came on stage to do what he knows his best and never disappointed the fans apart from continuing from where Grin had left.
Piksy who launched his brand new album Maso recently also ditched out a number of songs including Moto, Ponya Mwendo and Unamata.
Skeffa Chimoto also kept the fire burning when he performed some of his popular tracks including Thandi and Ndamusowa.
