Just a few months after the local dance trio the Stepas wowed Malawi with their performances at the E-Wallet contest, they have found themselves a new manager and a dance coach to assist their growth.
It would seem providence is shining favorably on them as popular club Chez Ntemba last week agreed to host the group for their routine practices.
Having performed at the P-Square concert, the Stepas are fired up and looking forward to making appearances in events at Chez Ntemba, as well performing for various artists.
“This is very exciting news as this opportunity ensures that the trio can practice more consistently and their growth can be successfully monitored. We are very grateful to the folks at Chez for giving us this access and take it as an encouraging sign of support for local industry from those that enjoy seeing the boys dance,” their manager Trevor Chikankheni told Nyasa Times.
He added: “The Stepas are working hard on their brand and are training intensely learning new things in order to give crowds something different from what they saw on e-wallet, and with the help of their new management and choreography team, they look forward to entertaining crowds when they start showcasing their latest stuff.”
Stepas, formally known as ‘Floor Steppers’, is a Malawian Afro-urban dance group consisting of three members Rolland, King and Tamanda.
Originally a nine member crew, Stepas became a three member team in 2010 when other members left for various reasons.
The three man strong team blew audiences at Malawi’s 2013 E-Wallet talent contest where they qualified to the finals and were selected to perform as one of the most loved acts of the event.
They repeated their magic when they performed at the P-Square show in Lilongwe and have since become one of the country’s most sought after dance acts by audiences and artists alike.
