Malawian musicians Armstrong, Piksy and Dan Lu are in South Africa where they will have a series of shows in Johannesburg, the provincial capital of Gauteng.
The artists left Malawi on Sunday and will have their first performance at Afrocentric Cafe (Tijuca) on Friday, before their next show at the Cafe De Oasis on Saturday. The last show will be at De Equator on Sunday afternoon.
The shows have been organised by Fire Flames, an entertainment company owned by South African based Kondwani Jere.
This will be the first international appearances for the two Nde’feyo Entertainment artists, while Dan Lu will be appearing in South Africa for the fourth time.
The ‘Part of life’ singer said it always feels special every time he travels to perform in South Africa, but this time “the trip is so special” because he will be dishing out his new singles ‘Ndi Mtima’, ‘Sweeter than sugar’ and the title track to his upcoming album ‘So What?’
And in separate interviews with Nyasa Times, Armstrong and Piksy said they were both excited to have their first appearances on international stages, saying the huge step is what they have been waiting for.
“This is what I’ve been expecting, to star on an international stage,” said Piksy.
The ‘Unamata’ star, while saying he was excited to be in South Africa, he admitted to be nervous at the same time.
“I’m nervous because I’ve never performed outside the country, but still I know I got something in me that make my stage performances irresistible,” he said.
Other artists expected to join the three are Lomwe, Rio, Crimana, Born African and Jeddie I Tafari.
