Musician Faith Mussa will continue holding small-level concerts as the situation has not yet normalised as regards Covid.
Faith took another long trip from Lilongwe to Blantyre to perform at Baobab in Blantyre.
The show came barely two weeks after the artist also made another long trip to perform at HS Winehouse in Blantyre, where he shared the stage with legendary poet Benedicto Wokoma-atani Malunga.
His manager Samuel Chiwaka said Sunday people are going to experience more of such smaller outings as part of giving people the much needed entertainment.
“The turnout during the Baobab show was good, it was for 50 people only. This is what we are trying to do and we have plans to hold these smaller concerts,” Chiwaka said.
He said smaller shows like the one at Baobab are better in terms of organisation.
“ Yes, you need bigger shows and we will be holding those as well but, in the meantime, this is what we will be doing. These are also intimate kind of shows because it offers an artist that chance of interacting with the audience,” Chiwaka said.
The manager also hinted that Faith is working on a new album to be released later this year.
Due to the pandemic, Faith, who sails with one-man band in some shows and with his Mdidi Band in other major shows, has failed to perform at international festivals.
The ‘Mdidi’ star said he has been working on new music in the studio in the absence of events.
“It has been a challenge not having shows but, once things normalise, we will get back to the stage. We just need to keep working hard,” Faith said.
The artist recently also released a track titled ‘Ogode’, in which he collaborated with renowned producer and pianist Gresham Mokwena.
