Malawi seems to be attracting a lot of Jamaican artists, the latest being Lutan Fyah, who is set to perform in the country next month.
The Jamaican artist, real name Anthony Martin, who is a musician, singer and member of the Rastafari movement Bobo Shanti, will perform in the country on December 14 at Robin’s Park in Blantyre and then Civo Stadium in Lilongwe two days later.
The reggae artist will perform in the country courtesy of African Link with Flames.
A member of the organising team, Elijah Phekani, confirmed Tuesday of Fyah’s performance in the country.
“I can confirm 101 percent that Lutan Fyah is coming and everything is in its place,” Phekani said.Advertisement
He said they are currently working on the lineup to support the Jamaican reggae artist.
Lutan Fyah will be performing in the country barely a month after people were treated to a more than three hour non-stop act by another Jamaican artist Kenyatta Hill during the 2018 Sand Music Festival held in Salima.
Team Entertainers’ Tonderai Banda said Tuesday they are working with Phekani and team and that they will be providing the stage.
