Club 24/7 in Blantyre is set to be on fire tomorrow when it plays host to an August Reggae Fest–Blantyre version which will go all the way to the early hours of Sunday.
Organised by Tuff Lion Music, the platform is ready to offer the best of reggae vibes to all reggae music lovers with a variety of artists on the menu.
Some of the top artists set to perform at the fest include reggae dancehall trailblazer Blasto, who will be making a long journey from Lilongwe to Blantyre, Trumel and Don Tarz.
The others are Jah Rhyno, Queen Fya, Chizmo, Veda Njuchi, and Young Generations, which is still basking in the glory of releasing a new album titled Africa Rise.
Also spicing up the show will be DJs such as JSpyda Da Ryda.
One of the organisers Jah Rhyno said Thursday they were ready for the show and that they were looking forward to satisfying people with reggae vibes.
He said they would also observe Covid measures during the show.
“We have this show in August because it is the month when me, Blasto and one band member were born, hence it is part of our birthday celebration. Instead of celebrating alone, we thought of celebrating with people,” Jah Rhyno said.
Asked why they have only targeted reggae and not other genres, Jah Rhyno said: “Reggae has always been people’s favourite music genre in Malawi and all over the world. Most of the international acts that have graced Malawi have always been reggae artists hence going for this genre. We have sampled the reggae performances of international acts such Lucky Dube, Morgan Heritage, Busy Signal and Kenyatta Hill and this just tells you the beauty of reggae.”
Blasto, as one of the headliners of the event said he was excited to perform in Blantyre after a long time.
“This is authentic reggae music for those who love that undiluted reggae vibes, played by very passionate artists and bands,” he said.
