Malawi’s promising hip hop artist Tsar Leo and reggae warlords the Black Missionaries will share the stage during the band’s DVD launch slated for Civo Stadium in Lilongwe next month.
The DVD launch for the Blacks’ Kuimba 10 studio album is coming to the capital city on 7th August.
Besides the budding star, afro sounds king Skeffa Chimoto, veteran Lucius Banda as well as Anthony Makondetsa will also take to stage in support.
Speaking to Malawi24 yesterday, the Lilongwe based Mcee expressed delight over the recognition.
He vowed to show the world what he is made up of as a hip hop artist.
Being an up and coming artist that only started doing serious hip hop last year, this comes as a blessing to catalyse further exposure.
“It feels like a blessing, it’s something I never expected. I promise to give people the best of me,” said Tsar Leo.
With a video for his hit single, The Other Side, to premiere on 15th August, the anticipation has proven to be beyond control on part of his followers. The visuals created by the crème de la crème of video production in Malawi, Essim and Sukez, is currently going through final touches before it lands on the public eye.
His potential in the industry has earned him a passport to share the stage with Malawi’s heavyweights, a favour that rarely falls on upcoming artists.
Chief Executive Officer for Cream Company which is facilitating the event, Timothy Adrian Chikoti, has spoken highly of Tsar Leo who has also received appraisals from the country’s hip hop stars, Tay Grin and Gwamba.
In a separate interview with this publication Chikoti said, “When I see potential I want to put it on the global scene, the artist’s music has a sense of quality that the Malawian people definitely have to see. Apart from that the artist has a high sense of energy and shows commitment to music.”
The Chileka based reggae outfit’s series of performances will after Lilongwe be taken to Blantyre on 12th August with Robins Park marked as the venue. The last episode of the mega launch will be set in Mzuzu on 14th August.
