Makhadzi erases upsets at Mulanje gig

THRILLING—Makhadzi performs

After her impressive exploits at Sand Music and Hangout festivals last year, South African musician Makhadzi won the hearts of people once again when she performed for the first time at Stephanos Lodge in Mulanje in the wee hours of Saturday, opening up her weekend assignments of Road to Summer gigs.

The artist, who performed using a CD with a DJ on the deck, was energetic throughout her one-hour performance and brought smiles to the impressive audience that earlier on got upset with prolonged delays.

Some people travelled all the way from Blantyre, Thyolo and Zomba to be part of the concert.


Skeffa Chimoto and Real Sounds Band, who were not on the menu, had a short performance that excited the audience as they waited for Makhadzi.

Later Mr Entertainer Jai Banda, whose son Tonderai and Entertainers Promotions provided the stage for the show, introduced the owner of Stephanos Lodge and hailed him for bringing Makhadzi to Mulanje for the first time, attracting cheers from the audience.

The veteran promoter then announced that Makhadzi was next on the bill but it took another long wait for people to see Makhadzi before she finally appeared at 2:30am.


Makhadzi, who described herself as Malawian by blood although she was South African, was welcomed with huge cheers as people moved closer to take pictures and videos of her.

Mulibwanji Malawi?” she said as the audience responded “Tili bwino kaya inu?”

Her two previous outings saw the artist, who describes herself as the ‘most beautiful woman in the whole world’, wearing boots but this time she was in sneakers.

Makhadzi was more reserved in her dance in the early stages but raised the rhythm as she progressed with the performance.

Missing on her set were her three dancers, with only one present, as they were reported to have missed their flight and, so, Makhadzi had to use some of the country’s dancers, including members of Floor Steppers who jelled well with her and lit her performance.

She left the stage with latest trending track ‘Magear’.

“Thank you Malawi for all the support,” she said after her performance and left the stage for Janta.

Although some of the people left after Makhadzi’s set, others remained to see off the gig and enjoyed Janta’s performance that had tracks such as ‘ Ex-Lover’ ‘Divorce’ and ‘Ndapeza Wina’ on his itinerary.

Earlier on, the audience enjoyed the performance of Gibo Pearson, who performed for some time before leaving the stage for Yaziyazi Band, which offered covers of artists such as Patience Namadingo.

Driemo, who is one of the country’s trending artists, also delivered a fine performance despite using a CD and ended on a high with his latest romantic track ‘Mojo’.

Makhadzi also performed at Hillside Lodge in Mponela, Dowa on Saturday and Mzuzu Stadium Sunday.
