Piksy’s performance at Club 15 in Blantyre on Saturday was perhaps the highlight of the night but what cannot be disputed is that Nyasa Music Awards will be bigger and better this year.
The African Print Party was organised to interact with the fans and sponsors who were part of the inaugural Nyasa Music Awards in 2017.
Attracting an audience of just over 500, Piksy seized the opportunity and gave the fans a glimpse of what to expect in May when Nyasa Music Awards hosts the second season of probably the best local music awards in Malawi.
The ‘Uncle Short One’ star performed ‘40’. ‘Maloto,’ ‘Angozo’, ‘Unamata,’ ‘Wa CV,’ and fans’ favourite ‘Uncle Short One.’
Piksy invited on stage Iceberg, a member of Bossaro Music Group and they performed ‘Tachokela Kutali.’ The artist also recognised the presence of Hyphen who jumped on stage to perform ‘Tsidya Lina.’
In an interview after his performance, Piksy said he was impressed with the support he got.
“It was a different audience which appreciated my performance. As an artist, I value that kind of support,” he said.
One of the organisers of the event Chifundo Maganga said the party achieved its aim.
“We wanted to interact with our fans but most importantly it was the perfect occasion for the fans to learn more about Nyasa Music Awards. We are getting bigger and this year will be much better than last year,” he said.
He called on the corporate world to be part of this year’s awards.
“It is a truly Malawian initiative and I am glad that a number of sponsors have confidence in our team. There are still some opportunities for the sponsors and we will welcome any kind of support,” he said.
The African Print Party goes to Lilongwe at the Cockpit Lounge on March 2.
