Organisers of Zahara’s Malawi concert, scheduled for next month in Blantyre, say the show will be not be held at Robins Park as earlier communicated and will instead be at Comesa Hall.
Mango Entertainment executive director Steve Kamanga disclosed this in an interview with Nyasa Times.
He cited safety measures and space as the main reasons why the show was shifted from the newly-built Robins Park.
“We were looking at safety of our patrons and something classy where we can accommodate the VIP, so Comesa [Hall] is ideal and spacious enough,” said Kamanga.
Meanwhile, as the company was waiting for the South African Afro-Soul singer to confirm her schedule, Kamanga has since verified the show will be taking place on 16 February.
“Now all is set and Zahara will arrive in Blantyre on the same day of her performance,” said the Mango Entertainment boss, who added “tickets are now on the market.”
The tickets, which are selling at K7,500 for general admission and K12,000 for VIP, are currently available at steers in Blantyre and Alexander’s Pub in Lilongwe.
According to Kamanga, the company will stop selling advance tickets on 3rd February and at the show, tickets will be K10,000 for general admission and K15,000 for VIP.
Zahara, who came in the limelight after she released her debut album Loliwe, will be performing in Malawi for the second time following her visit last September when she performed in Lilongwe.
During the show in Blantyre, she is expected to share the stage with Malawian artists, among them Dan Lu and Edgar ndi Davis.
