Zambian musician Mr Magigi real name James Banda, who performed in the country recently, is back for more shows.
The musician will be performing in three places this weekend and is once again here courtesy of Impakt Events.
Renowned musician and dancer Wendy Harawa, who hinted recently that she was managing the musician through Impakt Events confirmed yesterday that Mr Magigi arrives in the country today.
“We did say when Mr Magigi performed in the country that he would be coming back for more shows. The shows have been organised by public demand,” said Wendy.
He said the Zambian musician, who has soared with the hit ‘Nilibe Pulobulemu,’ only performed in a few places and that a lot of people have been asking for his return.
“We were actually planning a countrywide tour but there are several things we are we are working on at Impakt Events. So the arrangement is that he will be coming only when we are free,” she said.
During a show at Chez Ntemba in Blantyre, Mr Magigi, who performed during the Malawi versus Zambia gig sharing the stage with fellow Zambian group Organised Family offered the best impressing with ‘Nilibe Pulobulemu,’ but his other songs were strange to the audience.
‘Nilibe Pulobulemu’ is a hit song which has taken the country by storm such that even the country’s President Peter Mutharika is aware of the track.’
The artist, who showed potential in his singing and dancing during his first outing in the country, said he was not a ‘one track’ musician but he has an album.
Wendy said this was also a chance for Zambian and Malawian musicians to network.
Mr Magigi is once again expected to share the stage with local artists including Soldier Lucius Banda, Lambanie Dube, Nepman and Sam Simakweli.
The first show is tomorrow at Joe’s Motel in Mchinji and then on Saturday Riverside in Salima before dating Pajokala Lodge in Zomba on Sunday.
But tomorrow Lucius is also expected to perform at the launch of his brother Paul’s DVD at Bingu International Conference Centre at Umodzi Park in Lilongwe.
Lucius said he would first perform at the launch of his brother’s DVD launch before moving on to Mchinji.
“I will first perform at BICC where shows start early. I will be on stage by 8pm but at Joes Motel other artists will be performing and I will join them around 11,” he said.
