Celebrated musician and producer Lulu has said he will continue to work hard in his music craft to sell the country to the world.
He has said this as he readies to perform at a Black Tie Charity event in South Bend, Indiana, in United States of America (USA) next month.
The singer and guitarist, famed for tracks such as ‘N’zalera’ and ‘Kumalembe’, will perform in USA on April 1 2023 after he has been invited by Hats and Tea Inc.
“I am excited; this will be my first time to perform in United States of America. This is a step ahead in my music career. This is a country where music happens and this is where people we looked up to were born and live,” he said.
Lulu said he was looking forward to sharing what he has learnt over the years with Americans and Malawians living in USA.
“We need these opportunities as musicians or as artists if we are to grow. I will be performing to a different audience and it will not be Lulu but rather Lulu from Malawi and, so, I am happy to represent Malawi,” he said.
His management team, which includes musician Wendy Harawa, has said Lulu was ready for the Black Tie event.
“It is time you experience the best, next stop is Uganda and Tanzania,” Wendy wrote on social media.
She also said that people should watch the space for Lulu and Tanzania’s Diamond Platnumz collaboration.
“Lulu has been invited to USA on several occasions but dates always collided with other bookings and it is all good that now it’s finally possible,” Wendy said.
Last year, Lulu launched a new album titled One More Time.
