Ernest Ikwanga targets more gigs
Switzerland-based musician Ernest Ikwanga has said he is thankful to people for supporting and patronising his three shows – two in Lilongwe and one in Blantyre.
The artist held his first show at Story Club in Lilongwe with his second at Jacaranda Cultural Centre (JCC) in Blantyre.
His last show was on Saturday at Crossroads Hotel in Lilongwe.
“I am happy with the support I have received in all the three shows I organised. I am looking forward to more shows. I am also looking at coming up with more new songs,” Ikwanga said.
Before his showdown on Saturday, Ikwanga also starred with the United States-based artist Masauko Chipembere at Grittah’s Camp in Lilongwe.
“Performing with the likes of Sam Mjura Mkandawire on Saturday was something special. For now, I am done with the gigs here but I will be coming back with more shows. Now I am looking forward to more European gigs next month and October,” he said.
The singer and guitarist said his next performances in the country will see him performing as far as the Northern Region.
“This time around, I have only managed to perform in Lilongwe and Blantyre but I am looking at going as far as Mzuzu in my next shows,” he said.
The artist said, at the three shows, he managed to promote his Chisekese album.
Ikwanga has represented the country in different platforms including Sauti za Busara Festival last year, where he starred with Lilongwe-based youthful group Mbanaye.
The artist is expected to leave for his base in Switzerland next weekend.
