MBC’s choice of Davido over local artists under fire

73

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.

I am so happy that i have to tell the whole world how i was cured from HIV.I never knew there was a cure till i came across a story of how a lady was cured of HIV by an herbal doctor called dr.IKUKU.I have been living a hopeless like since i tested positive.I contacted him and started taking his herb.Exactly 3 weeks he told me to go for a check up,i went and was confirm negative.It was shocking to me till series other tests still prove that i was negative.Till today i am still negative.All thanks to dr IKUKU.You can contact him if you have any troubling sickness.
