Rapper Gwamba, real name Duncan Zgambo, said Thursday he was 100 percent ready to give people an exciting outing ahead of the long awaited Gwamba Live concert set for Mzuzu Stadium on Sunday.
The Gwamba Live concert was expected to be held last year in February but Gwamba cancelled it due to Covid.
He said the Northern Region has been sidelined when it comes to entertainment and that he was looking forward to making history at the concert which is also expected to bring on board South African artist Emtee.
“Although it’s taking place in Mzuzu, people from all the corners are welcome. In most cases, we have big shows only happening in Lilongwe and Blantyre, and Mzuzu is always sidelined. We have Emtee on the line-up,” he said.
Gwamba and Emtee have worked together previously, with Emtee featuring Gwamba in the track ‘Uzoyimela’ whereas Gwamba featured Emtee in his track ‘Own Time’.
The ‘Bola Kusache’ star said his link with Emtee is now beyond the music stage.
“These days we interact as friends; so, it’s very easy for us to make music and to have him here is great,” he said.
The rapper confirmed that Emtee would be flying in this afternoon through Kamuzu International Airport in Lilongwe.
“The first stop is Mingle in Lilongwe on Friday (today) and then on Saturday (tomorrow) we drive to Mzuzu and then on Sunday we have the concert,” he said.
The artist in March left for Tanzania to work with one of the artists. He, however, did not disclose the name of the artist he worked with.
“That Tanzania project is for my album which is dropping in 2022; so, it is one step at a time,” he said.
The concert comes barely three weeks after Grand Palace in Mzuzu showed its commitment to support creativity in the country by pumping K2,090,000 into the concert.
Meanwhile, Gwamba has said they are working on security issues to make sure that they have a great show with no violence.
“We want to make sure that everyone is safe during the concert and, so, security is vital. We are also looking at having first aid and also putting up hotlines for assistance,” Gwamba said.
