George Mwausegha, a young man currently working with Malawi’s Prime Insurance Company in Karonga, has rolled out a project whose aim is to promote unearthed talent in the urban music genre in the country.
Malawi’s arts industry falls short of promoters. The most renowned promoter is lawyer Jai Banda, for music, and recently Q Malewezi, for performing arts.
In an interview with Nyasa Times, on the sidelines of a show he organized at Karonga’s Hotel Taj in the lakeshore district, Mwausegha said he arrived at the idea not only to promote local talent but also to help young people in the district and beyond move out of the shells of unemployment which is quite rampant.
He has already invested more than K200, 000 in the project.
“My aim is to promote youthful talent and use it as a weapon to stamp out vice in our country and beyond, and to reduce unemployment as it can eventually become a source of living for them,” Mwausegha, 33, told Nyasa Times.
Mwausegha is presently working with two artists Thom Gong Cee and Supa Nino whose music is enjoying massive airplay on state broadcaster MBC 2 and can be downloaded online on http://www.urbanmalawi.com/.
Mwausegha said that he is currently discussing with Prime Time Media, managers of Gwamba and Nesnes, so that the two perform in the district between 27th and 28th June this month.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
