Malawi’s Afro-soul gospel musician, Lawi, of the ‘Amaona Kuchedwa’ fame, will this coming Wednesday, Mothers’ Day, perform at the newly opened Grand Palace Hotel located near Toyota Malawi branch in Mzuzu.
The show, whose tickets are going at K10, 000 per head and K18, 000 for couples, is a fundraising initiative of the Word Alive Ministries, Mzuzu Chapter.
According to the organizing chairperson of the event, Pastor Reuben Matundu, funds to be raised from the show will be used to buy a minibus for the Ministry.
“We have had problems in reaching out to our flock especially those in remotest areas. So we decided to come up with this show to help us buy a minibus to get us where we haven’t been able to reach in the past,” said Matundu.
Corporate tables of ten people will be going at K150, 000 at the show, according to the organizers.
Lawi, real name Francis Phiri, is one of the hot-selling artists in the country at the moment.
Recently he was among the best male artists from Southern Africa nominated for 2014 All Africa Music Award (AFRIMA) in the male category for his song ‘Whistle Song’ alongside Nigerian artist Davido and South Africa musicians Mafikizolo and Uhuru.
