Musicians Skeffa Chimoto and Blaze on Saturday performed at Chingalire Rural Growth Centre in Lilongwe.
They were guest artists during activities which Musicians Organisers Volunteers Exchange (Move) programme alumni organised at the weekend.
Move alumnus held workshops in the morning with youths of Chingalire, taking them through the steps in areas such as music, dance and girl empowerment.
It was after the workshops that people in the area were treated to performances that came from Movers Band, Kasiya Talent Group, Chingalire Cultural Troupe, Neil Nayar and his wife Christine and Mvula Band.
After that, it was Blaze and Skeffa’s time to take to the performance stage.
Blaze, who moved from Blantyre to Lilongwe, offered a number of songs backed by Mvula Band.
He, however, did not skip the romantic anthem ‘Mwini Zinthu’, which had the audience singing along throughout.
“Thank you very much for the support you have given me. I really appreciate that and I am happy to perform here. I hope this is not the first time but the beginning of more shows,” Blaze said.
Skeffa was the last to perform at the event.
It was not the first time for Skeffa to perform at Chingalire. Last year, he entertained people with his Real Sounds Band during the Ethno Music Camp.
He dished out a number of songs including his latest ‘Kankha’, which calls on people to push and work hard to achieve their goals regardless of the challenges around.
“We have what it takes to achieve our goals. We should not give up,” Skeffa said.
