Skeffa Chimoto back in Blantyre
After a long absence in Blantyre, the Afro sounds captain Skeffa Chimoto reenergises ahead of a concert at Premier Lodge in Chileka next week.
The Lilongwe based singer will on 16th October take to stage alongside the Real Sounds Band under the auspices of Cream Company. The event is expected to enhance Chimoto’s bond with his Blantyre fans.
Speaking to Malawi24 on Friday, Chief Executive Officer for Cream Company Timothy Adrian Chikoti pointed out the need to give Blantyre residents a Mothers’ Day gift as the motivating factor.
“Since it will be time for the Mother’s Day celebrations, we might perhaps treat Blantyre with a wonderful treat of good uplifting music,” he said
Chikoti added that the concert has also been organised in response to Blantyre residents’ cries for the Chikondi cha Bodza hitmaker.
“There have been cries among people of Blantyre as to when this music giant will perform in the city which is why we are bringing him here. It’s not just his music that makes people applaud him but actually his magic in making people jam as they listen to his music and his love for the people,” he said.
The occasion that will be largely spiced up by good music will start at 3PM till late. With only K2000 fun seekers will be guaranteed space in the Premier Lodge to witness Chimoto unleash his talent under the backing of Real Sounds Band.
The Chinamuluma Chakuda star is among Malawi’s most celebrated musicians with a convincingly large fan base. His following extends to the neighbouring Zambia having done a couple of songs with Dalisoul from that country.
