Musician Piksy left the country Thursday for Dublin, Ireland, where he is expected to perform at the Association of Malawians in Ireland (Amai) Gala Awards Saturday.
The award-winning artist, who recently bagged the Song of the Year Award for ‘Anana’ during the fourth edition of the Maso Awards, will be performing in Ireland for the first time.
“I feel honoured and respected to be hired by fellow Malawians in diaspora. This shows full support for our music and I cannot wait to jump on stage,” he said before departure.
The artist promised nothing but the best during his performance adding that he has had massive rehearsals.
“This event gives me a chance to perform to a different audience and so, it will help a lot in widening my fan base. I also hope to network as well as part of developing more opportunities for me and fellow artists back home,” he said.
Piksy, who last weekend starred at the Miss Malawi 2022, will be the second artist to perform in Ireland in less than two months after Kell Kay also launched his Ndabwera Ndi Nkhani album there.
Amai was formed in 2014 with an aim of looking after the well-being of Malawians in Ireland.
The group decided to create awards to reward individuals who have contributed greatly in various sectors including charity works.
