Poetry especially in vernacular continues to enjoy the limelight with the Capital City, Lilongwe slowly growing a strong fan base. This was witnessed during a poetry feast dubbed ‘Chiphwando Cha Ndakatulo’ held at Lilongwe CCAP Hall where a lot of people patronised the event.
It was a platform where poetry was the main headliner but the audience also sampled gospel music performances and comedy. There were also performances from presidential mimickers Aunt Geti, Atcheya and Mr Malawi.
