It’s fun for Capital City as Ndefeyo’s Nthumwi Pixy and currently dancehall icon Blakjak alongside former Big Brother star Lomwe invades Lilongwe in what is termed as Bhumpa L-City Zanzi showdown.
Under the newly established The Movement label, Pixy, Blakjak and Lomwe are set to mesmerize central region audience this Friday March 9 evening in a party that promises more fun and tipsy.
The three will be joined by another dancehall artist, Blasto and hip-hop buddie, Gwamba. Music aside, those to patronize the show will be given a chance to showcase their dancing skills in a dancing competition with a winner to pocket K5, 000.
According to Dj Malick of The Movement, the show is one of the initiatives to bring urban artists close to their fans while complementing to the development of urban music in the country.
“We noted that most music promoters are just there to leap on artists and it is our focus to ensure that the artists are benefiting from their sweat. We enter into working agreement with the artists on issues of payments so that they too smile in the end,” said the 101 radio Dj.
On top of music, Dj Malick said there will be Dj set to entertain patrons and Zanzi in-house Dj Scarper, Lomwe and Malick himself will toast the turn tables.
With Blakjak-formerly Nyasa Guruz- currently enjoying wave of fame with his hit song Wadya Iwe and Pixy a darling of all, then, Lilongwe should brace for fire works as the two seem to have mastered the art of amusing audiences in every show they perform.
Malick added that The Movement will be working various organization including radio stations in identifying and promoting up and coming urban artists.
“Like currently we are linked with 101 Gowelo beat program which focuses on promoting urban music so that we can have access to those artists just trying making a name on the market. We will be working with such artists in building up their audiences and helping them to leap on their sweat.
“After Lilongwe we are expecting to hold another show in Blantyre where we will have a set of Lilongwe artists so that Blantyre music fans should also have a chance of being close to their favorites whom they listen to on radio,” he explained.
