Afro-rapper and singer, Piksy, who is also Airtel Malawi brand ambassador jets back in the country Friday morning from Kenya where he went on a business visit courtesy of the mobile company.
The artist will be launching his latest album ‘Maso’ at Portuguese Club.
After gripping Blantyre fans with a breathtaking performance last month at Robins Park in Blantyre, Piksy will be taking the fun and thrills of his debut album to the people in the capital.
The ‘Unamata’ star, born Evance Zangazanga, told Nyasa Timesthat this was a show he had been looking forward to and promised fireworks engulfed with non-stop entertainment.
“People should expect nothing but a great show, just like it was in Blantyre and perhaps more. Am ready to give out the best as I always do, that’s my promise to the people of Lilongwe,” he said. “My stay in Kenya will not affect the show in any way.”
Live performances will be backed by sound masters Maziko Band. The launch will bring jointly a wider assortment of Malawi’s best musicians in the names of Sir Lucius Banda, Armstrong, Wendy Harawa and Blakjak.
“We are ready to support our brother Piksy and I urge all fans to come in large numbers because there will be fire all round,” said Blakjak of the famed explicit “Wadya Iwe” track.
Among others, there will be DJ performances from 10:00am before live performances in the afternoon. An after party is scheduled to take place at Zanzi where resident DJ Scarper and Nde’feyo’s in-house DJ Kari-P will entertain patrons from 9:00pm.
‘Maso’ album is currently selling in designated outlets in Lilongwe and Blantyre including Puma Shops, Overcomers, Talk of the Town and Spectrum Music Centre in Limbe. It is expected to be distributed across the country after the launch on Saturday.
According to Nde’feyo, the response has been encouraging and the album is “doing well” in the various outlets that it is selling.
