Piksy has been billed as one of the artists to colour the launch of a new arts outfit known as Starz Entertainment at Blue Elephant in Blantyre on Saturday.
In an interview on Wednesday, Piksy said he was ready for the show and that he would use the occasion to drop new singles, Kameneka and Ndi Kungo.
“Piksy is back! That is what I can tell all my fans. I’m working on an acoustic project but also on my third album titled Mtunda at the same time. Two of the songs, which will be part of the album, will be performed at this launch,” Piksy said.
The Uncle Short One star promised his fans more and said the two albums will be ready next year.
“I am making strides as a musician and all I am trying to do is to bring to people mature music,” said the former Airtel Malawi ambassador.
He said he has already worked on the video for Kameneka and that its audio will be out on Monday.
“We are currently rehearsing for Ndi Kungo but its audio will come out together with Kameneka,” Piksy said.
Starz Entertainment co-director Christopher Chirambo said on Wednesday that they were happy to engage musicians such as Piksy.
Chirambo said Starz Entertainment seeks to promote music talent among university students.
“There is a lot of talent in the universities. Some of the artists used to entertain us in those days but they are no longer active, so as a company we want this talent to come back to light,” he said.
So many entertainment companies have come out promising the best for the industry only for them to disappoint artists.
But Chirambo said they were serious with what they are doing and that the launch was part of raising more funds for different projects.
Apart from Piksy, some of the artists set to light the launch at Blue Elephant are Nepman, Sir Patricks and Cyen 2 & 5.
“We have also invited some female DJs who will perform. We have a DJ competition involving female DJs. Also participating will be male DJs including the resident DJ for Blue Elephant,” Chirambo said.
Commonly known as Khija, Chirambo said they will be going to universities to identify deejaying talent among students.
“We will be nurturing this talent until the DJs acquire skills that match with international standards. We want especially to promote female DJs,” he said.
Chirambo said their attention is on female DJs because they have been neglected for too long in the deejaying industry.
