Rapper Hyphen on Saturday finally gave people a treat in a virtual show dubbed Hyphen Appreciation Concert.
The artist has since called on creatives to tap into the digital world to reach out to the people.
“There are challenges in terms of data and network but we need to explore this avenue especially this time when there are no shows. It is not the same as live shows but we just have to do it this time,” he said.
Mingle hosted Hyphen’s concert in Lilongwe and the show, produced by Nyali Muzik in their studios, was broadcast live on Hyphen’s Facebook page.
The ‘Anankabango’ and ‘Zipepetse’ star received praises from people on Facebook during the performance.
“It was a good experience to come out and perform and everything went well. With the support I got, I surely delivered. I wish we had beamed it on TV as well but things didn’t work out,” Hyphen said.
In the absence of the audience which he is used to during live performances, Hyphen said he knew people were watching.
“It was more like rehearsal where we work without the audience but I was monitoring and could see people,” he said.
He said artists should continue treading carefully with the pandemic.
The musician also used the show to disseminate information on mental health. Going forward, Hyphen said he will aim at finishing up a album to be ready later this year.
