In an effort aimed at raising funds to drive different projects, Musicians Union of Malawi (Mum) Southern Chapter has organised what it calls a Blantyre Musik Party to be held at Chrichi Gardens on Valentine’s Day.
One of the musicians performing at the show Khuza Rampi said as a chapter they thought it wise to come together during Valentine to entertain their fans.
“Valentine is the time people show love and so as a chapter we thought we should also show love by entertaining people with our music vibes. But again we wanted to take this opportunity to raise funds for the union,” said Rampi.
He said the Southern chapter wants to embark on different projects in the year 2016 and that apart from reaching out to the corporate world for assistance they thought of lining up different shows.
“This is just the beginning but we want to hold more shows to raise enough money. As musicians we have been struggling in a lot of areas, we are failing to reach out to some of our friends who are sick and in need of our help,” said Rampi.
The warm up to the Sunday’s show starts tomorrow at Soche Technical College where some artists will also perform.
Chrichi Gardens Events Manager Wales Chakukuma said he has always wanted to promote the creative industry hence the venue hosting the music party.
The platform will see gospel artists coming face to face with secular.
Apart from Rampi, the other artists performing at the show include King James Phiri, Favoured Martha, who is also Mum deputy president and Ethel Kamwendo Banda, who is the Mum Women’s Desk deputy chairperson.
The other artists are Saul Chembezi, Ravers Band, Mingoli Band, Ravers Band, Master Tongole, Hastings Moffat and Lucky Stars Band.
