“People will also taste local comedians Mr Malawi, Aunt Geti and Atcheya who are famous in mimicking former Malawi presidents late Professor Bingu wa Mutharika, Dr Joyce Banda and Dr Bakili Muluzi respectively,” Said Gift Khabuwa Spokesperson of Chia Productions, organizers of the show.
Khabuwa said the combination of musicians, poets and comedians was made to treat people in a special way.
“We want this event to be a family show, where people of all different walks of like can come together and entertain together. We want everyone to have something to enjoy.
“We decided to include Dalisoul from Zambia because of a simple reason, a lot of people enjoy his music in Malawi and because it has been a long time since he last perfomed in the country, we thought it wise that his fans should have a taste of his new songs,” said Khabuwa.
