In a bid to expose talent among the youth in the country, events management firm, Focus 265, on Sunday partnered Maximum Entertainment in a talent show held at Kalambo Primary School in Lilongwe.
The event, dubbed Maximum Ghetto Festival, saw the youth showcasing talent in disciplines such as singing and martial arts.
Among others, the show attracted performances from artists such as Toria who shared the stage with dancehall artist Blasto.
The festival on Sunday came barely a month after Focus 265 brought Yo Mamps and B1 from Zambia.
Focus 265 Projects Manager, Sandra Msonga, said the show was aimed at giving a chance to youths with talent to perform with icons in the industry.
“The main aim is to see to it that youth come out and showcase their talent. It was also a platform where up-and-coming artists interacted with well-known artists,” Msonga said.
Steven Chisale, better known as DJ Maximum, of Maximum Entertainment, described the event as a success.
“We had a great show. The turn up was more than what we anticipated. It was great to see new talent,” Chisale said.
The event attracted thousands of youths from Areas 25, 49, 18 and Mgona.
The free-of-charge Maximum Ghetto Festival started in 2015.
“We make it free because we want to support talented young people as part of giving back to the community. There is so much talent out there,” Chisale said.
