Mzuzu City will be the first to sample a live music concert involving musicians Lawi and Patience Namadingo in an Easter tour that will also take them to Lilongwe and Blantyre.
This is also the first show for the two acts since they announced that they had put their feet together in a partnership that would see them holding performances and producing music together.
The concert in Mzuzu is tonight at Mzuzu Hotel and, tomorrow night, the show goes to Bingu International Convention Centre in Lilongwe and then, on Easter Monday, the two acts will perform at Comesa Hall in Blantyre.
Namadingo, who is enjoying his music and recently became the ambassador of Ecobank and DStv, said Mzuzu has always been sidelined when it comes to holding shows but now they have to sample it first.
“Mzuzu is always sidelined but, this time around, we are taking the show to them and, as such, it’s pretty exciting because we are taking the show to their doorstep,” Namadingo said.
The singer and guitarist, famed for songs such as ‘Msati Mseke’ and ‘Mtendere’, said Mzuzu was just like any other city.
“We listen to downloaded music all the time but we must remember, it is 100+50% impossible to download a live music experience,” said the musician, who released the single ‘Goliyati’ recently.
He said they have had fun rehearsing.
Lawi, who has just received a nomination in the Nyasa Music Awards in the category of Album of the Year for his Sunset in the Sky, said: “Mzuzu here we come”.
He further said he cannot wait to get to the stage.
“Mzuzu will experience the best music ever. This is my first ever show this year and this is the first time ever with Patience,” Lawi said.
Lawi’s manager, Emmanuel Maliro, said they were looking forward to the show in Mzuzu and called on people to come in large numbers.
“We want history to be created with this show but, being Easter, this is also a gift to them so we want people to come in large numbers and help Lawi and Patience make that history. People have said Mzuzu is sidelined but this comes in because of costs,” Maliro said.
He was, however, quick to say the show would also serve as a springboard for Lawi and Namadingo‘s performances in the Northern Region.
Maliro hailed the corporate world for making it possible for the Easter shows to take place in the three cities of Mzuzu, Lilongwe and Blantyre.
He said the Easter tour for the two musicians has been organised by Mizu.
