Sangie: It’s a dream come true.

Sangie: It’s a dream come true.

The “I Do It All For Love” singer is among six artists that have been picked to perform at the opening ceremony on Monday.

Other musicians to perform at the conference include South Africa’s Siphokazi Maraqana, Zambia’s Scarlet, Mozambican Anita Macuacua and two others from Lesotho and Seychelles.

Confirming the trip, Sangie’s manager Promise Matatiyo also disclosed that the vocalist is expected to fly to South Africa today (Friday) for a recording session.

“There are 15 artists from 15 different SADC countries who will be recording an anthem called ‘Imoshi – We Are One’ which spreads the message in protection of the ecosystem in the region.

“Out of the 15, only six will perform at the Summit and Sangie will be representing Malawi as the country’s ambassador of the ‘Imoshi’ project,” disclosed Matatiyo in an interview on Thursday.

The “Imoshi – We Are One” project is produced by Akwafrica Productions and an invitation letter  further confirms: “You [Sangie] are one of those 6 artists who we delightedly found to be appropriate for Gaborone and continuing to be part of our family”.

Reacting to her invitation, Sangie, who has been in the limelight for less than a year, described it as a dream come true.

“From the start I wanted my music to go international and working with SADC artists is also a big thing not only for me but my country too,” she said. “I get to set to my fellow young girls [that] hard work pays. Being a girl is a most precious thing.”

The 20-year-old added: “Thanks to the team behind Sangie, it’s barely a year and am already going countries”.

According to the correspondence, after the recording and performance at the SADC summit, Sangie is expected to represent Malawi in many more events to follow for the next two years.

Furthermore, Akwafrica is expected to host the Mankind´s Home TV Show to be broadcast live for 30 days as they record the Imoshi album with all the 15 artists for the world.

Project Imoshi has been endorsed by the Mandela International Film Festival and given an annual exhibition in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, starting on the 5th December 2015.

    WHEN ENTERING SA, SOUTH AFRICANS FEEL ‘WELCOMED BACK HOME.’ BUT WHEN MALAWIANS ENTER THEIR COUNTRY, THEY FEEL UNWELCOMED DUE TO SATANIC TAXES, DUTIES ETC. EVERYBODY IS SETTLING IN SA. REASON, THE GOVERNMENT PROMOTES ITS PEOPLE AND EVEN FOREIGNERS. MALAWI WAKE UP. ITS YOUR PEOPLE THAT WILL BUILD YOU UP. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE WHEN THIS CHILD/YOUTH COMES BACK, DO NOT TAX HER TALENT.
    YOU KNOW, IN EVERY COUNTRY PEOPLE PAY TAX ETC. AND THEY SEE IT WORKING FOR THEM. MALAWI LEADERSHIP SHOW US WHY WE PAY TAX. NOTHING TO SHOW. PROVE ME, PROVE NOW.
