Another huge opportunity has come up for the ‘Mdidi’ hit maker Faith Mussa, who will perform at Glastonbury Festival in United Kingdom.
This is no small festival; it is amongst the top festivals in United Kingdom which attracts a big line-up,” Mussa said.
The festival will this year run from June 21 – June 25.
Festival manager Samuel Chiwaka confirmed thursday that Mussa, who recently toured Norway, will perform at Glastonbury Festival for the first time.
“This is a big festival and to show that this festival is not that small, the tickets have already sold out. We are now in the process of getting his visa sorted. Everything for him to travel to the festival has been paid for,” Chiwaka said.
Chiwaka said he was happy that Mussa has earned himself a place to perform at the festival which will see him representing Malawi.
“I am happy with the progress he is making as an artist. Performing at this festival is no mean achievement. It’s exciting news not only to me and Faith but also Malawi,” he said.
Mussa, who has got four nominations in the inaugural Nyasa Music Awards to be held tonight at Comesa Hall in Blantyre also confirmed the development.
“Yes it’s true. I have actually emailed Beating Heart to get more information. It feels like I am going to the World Cup finals. God is good,” he said.
Mussa said the organisers of the festival have written him.
“I was spotted through a collaboration I made with UK group Afriqui managed by Beating Heart from the work we did. I managed to record an EP which will be out before the release of my Mdidi album this year,” he said.
The Glastonbury Festival is a five-day gathering of contemporary performing arts that takes place near Pilton, Somerset.
