Epic Group Chief Executive Officer Yollam Kawanga has said they will not comment on Nigerian musician Kizz Daniel’s recent reports of his arrest in Tanzania following his Summer Amplified no show last Sunday.
Kawanga has since said the ‘Buga’ star’s August 27 2022 concert at Lilongwe Golf Club is intact despite some quarters expressing concern with the artist’s no show escapades.
The Epic CEO said to avoid the unforeseeable circumstances, it was agreed in their contractual agreement with Kizz Daniel that the artist need to arrive in Malawi earlier.
Media reports indicated Tuesday that Tanzania police had released Kizz Daniel after he was detained.
The artist’s management has maintained silence since news of his arrest went viral.
Kawanga maintained that people should expect a memorable Kizz Daniel concert to be spiced up by 12 local acts in Patience Namadingo, Onesimus, Tay Grin, Eli Njuchi, Driemo, Sangie, Wendy Harawa, Tuno, EmmQ, Janta, Provoice and Black Missionaries.
“People can appreciate Kizz Daniel’s performance in Uganda last Saturday. But as for the Tanzania’s incident, as Epic Lifestyle concert organisers, allow us not to comment much since our legal binding contract with Kizz Daniel’s management is different from theirs, thus ours is still intact and Malawi concert is on,” Kawanga said.
“Apart from local heavyweights, people should also expect top notch DJs and we will be unveiling them gradually. People should just watch the space,” Kawanga said.
National Bank of Malawi Plc has been hyping the event and marketing its products through road shows and market activations.
The bank recently engaged Driemo in Zomba, Lulu in Lilongwe and Saint in Blantyre.
