Artists drum up support for Piksy

27

Piksy’s Kora award nomination has received a major boost as Malawi’s  urban artists have joined hands in urging people to vote for him.

The artist whose real name is Evans Zangazanga was nominated in the best male Southern Africa category along with five other musicians from Southern Africa.

It all started with hip-hop artist, Kabol Lombwe, who appealed to Malawians on social media last month, to support the country’s sole representative. With the passage of time, other artists have fallen in the long chain of supporters for Zangazanga of the “Unamata” fame.

Piksy: Being supported.

Gospel hip-hop artist Barry One is one of the well-wishers as evidenced by his recent Facebook posts.

In his post yesterday, he congratulated Malawi netball superstar Mwawi Kumwenda for claiming the International World Games Association (IWGA) award as athlete of the year. He then called on Malawians to support Piksy in the same way.

Media personalities are also persuading people to vote for the former Airtel brand ambassador if the country is to have a double victory in international honours this year following Kumwenda’s triumph. In almost all entertainment radio shows, presenters have been campaigning for the afro-urban artist.

The award presentation ceremony is slated for 20th March in Namibia. It will unite musicians from all corners of Africa. The awards’ diversity is evidenced in the nomination of artists who do different genres of music.

The Malawian ambassador is looking forward to go ahead of South African rapper, AKA, C4 Pedro and Creon Du from Angola, Gazza from Namibia, from Angola and Zambia’s Petersen, who have been nominated along with him in the same category.

  2. Amalawi monga anthu oyipisitsa mu Africa muno…they always look at your weaknesses and not strengths….no wonder we are the poorest of the poor and the we blame it on others. Learn to honour what is your own and despise the other but with a back up statement. If you cant do something that someone can do then just learn it from that person rather than being mean and discredit a fellow comrade…… Remember that ignorance has more power than wisdom….# The Godfather….
