Organizers of the live music show for a renowned international Muslim song writer and singer Zain Bhikha scheduled for tomorrow Saturday at Robins Park in Blantyre and at Cross Roads Hotel in the capital Lilongwe on Sunday say there are expecting patrons to behave and dress as required in Islam.
Communications Manager or Classic Events, Bashir Amin told Nyasa Times on Friday that although people from other faiths are most welcome to the show, they are not expecting anyone to behave or dress in a manner that would annoy others.
“It’s certain that those who will come drunk will be denied entry. We expect Muslim women to dress as they always do. And it would be surprising for women to come in extremely miniskirts or dresses.”
Amin says it has also been arranged that women will sit separate from men.
“Although this is an Islamic event but people from faiths are also welcome. Zain Bhika music tackles all aspect of life and is famous among both Muslims and non-Muslims,” said Amin.
He has assured patrons that they should not worry about security saying necessary security measures have been put in place.
The shows have been organised to raise funds for the 2015 Malawi Muslim Awards function.
Zain Bhikha is a South African singer-songwriter who performs Islamic nasheed songs. Associated with other Muslim musicians, including Yusuf Islam and Dawud Wharnsby, Bhikha has collaborated on albums and also released several solo albums.
This year, Zain is celebrating 20 years of his nasheed career. He has travelled to UK, USA, Canada, France and other European and Asian countries.
