Urban artists share stage in Poly bash


Urban artists on Saturday performed at Polytechnic in Blantyre during a bash which spilled over to the early hours of Sunday.

The urban bash which was aimed at giving a platform to urban artists to entertain people as well as network was organised by Prince Chikweba and Joy Nathu.

With several events happening on the same night, the bash managed to pull an impressive audience which was dominated by students.


As usual some students lacked discipline during the show as they kept on storming the stage as artists were performing which to some extent disrupted performances.

It is also becoming a trend for some urban artists who lack discipline on stage, they throw caution to the wind by coming on stage while drunk not respecting their work.

“There is so much talent in these urban artists but they need to take their music seriously just as their other counterparts do. There is need for discipline because some stormed the stage whilst drunk which is not good at all, they are role models so they need to behave,” said one of the fans Bernard Kachingwe.


With all that said, the urban bash lived up to its billing although artists did not perform live. They performed with support from DJs on set.

The show saw performances from among others Theo Thomson, who was a surprise package on the night.

Theo, who is set to launch his latest album White Elephant at Robins Park in Blantyre this coming Sunday, wowed the audience when he jumped on stage.

He offered a short performance dishing out the hit Kutentha, before closing the chapter with Maybe Tomorrow, a track which is in his new album and it features gospel singer and guitarist Faith Mussa.

But he performed the song alone as Mussa was not available.

Tay Grin of the Chipapapa hit which he collaborated with Nigerian star 2Baba formerly 2Face also performed.

The artist started off with other songs but it was his Chipapapa hit which drove the audience crazy such that Tay Grin had to do an encore of the song.

Tay Grin later called on people to support the song for it to hit the top on Trace as it has moved places and is currently on position four in the Top 10 Africa hits.

South Africa based singer-songwriter Zani Challe, who has soared with her new song Single Tonight, also performed.

Challe attracted cheers when she jumped on stage and went straight into business dishing out Single Tonight, which features Nigeria’s multi-award winning reggae-dancehall artist Patoranking.

The dancehall song was released on April 13, 2016.

Challe sang with energy and spiced up her performance with dancing.

The other artists, who did well on the night winning the hearts of people, include Martse of the Mwano fame, Daredevils, Fredokiss, Mafo and Nesnes.

Chikweba said this was just the beginning of more urban shows as they would want urban artists to be on their toes.
