The choice of the rude Nigerian superstar who got bored with a few hours of being in Malawi, Davido, for an advert by public broadcaster Malawi Broadcasting Corporation has come under fire.
A status update from urban musician Fredokiss has wondered why the MBC Innovation awards which are being said to be 100% local are being advertised with the music of the Nigerian superstar in the background.
“Imagibe MBC Tv has an advert of some local awards called ‘Innovations Awards’ with a Nigerian song in the background and they are saying the awards are pure Malawian,” posted Fredokiss mocking the mediocrity that has become rampant at the Public Broadcaster.
The remarks by Fredokiss have also been echoed by Sam Smakweli who has wondered why the public broadcaster has decided to use a foreign artist on local awards.
The remarks were echoed by the people who commented on the statuses with some wondering if other countries would use a Malawian song for national awards.
The MBC Innovation Awards will be attended by President Mutharika at the College of Medicine in Blantyre.
