Musician Piksy on Friday night launched his natural spring water known as Moyo at Blues in Blantyre.
The launch attracted a huge audience that, apart from enjoying the water, also had time to enjoy performances from Piksy as the headliner but also other acts.
Blues was still dry as early as 10pm with a few people but, by the time it was hitting midnight, the venue was full to its capacity. This also is a wake-up call to the venue owners to look into the expansion drive as far as hosting more people is concerned. The venue owners have also got to look into the stage for performances as it seems to be too small with some people stepping in and out when the acts were in progress.
Fans however, had to wait for a long time to start enjoying the performances which started midnight.
Piksy, who jumped on stage in the early hours of Saturday after acts such as Phyzix, Saint, Stitch Fray, Barry One, Hyphen and Rina had performed hailed people for coming out in large numbers on a cold night.
“I don’t take your coming for granted. Thank you for all the support and I call upon you to buy the water. We have started and there is no going back. This is Moyo water, it is unique and natural spring water,” Piksy said.
Putting on the branded Moyo T-shirt, the artist just like all the other acts performed without a band with the support coming from DJs Mnyaxy and E. It was a night that also saw the two DJs serve the audience with several songs that had them on the dance floor and they could not skip Zambian musician B1’s trending track ‘Kwa George’.
“I would like to thank my manager Wisdom Phanga for working tirelessly to have the business on the ground. Now that we have launched, people can access the water. We have started with the Southern Region particularly Blantyre and Zomba and then we will penetrate into the other areas,” Piksy said.
On their delaying the launch which was hosted by Times Television presenter and musician Blak Jak, Piksy said they did it deliberately as they wanted more people to be part of the history.
“Being a Friday, we had to give a chance to people to go to other clubs and then after that come to the launch until late,” Piksy, who dished out songs such as ‘Umakwana’, ‘ Wa CV’ and ‘Anko Short One’, said.
All the artists who spiced up the launch commended Piksy for investing into the water business.
“This is good and I would like to commend Piksy for this. He has motivated some of us that we can also engage in other businesses to support our music career,” Phyzix said.
Phanga said musicians had what it takes to engage in other businesses.
