Malawi: Soul Sundays Promoting Malawian Upcoming Artists

Malawi-based record label, Soulamp Entertainment, through its Soul Art-Reach initiative, will hold the second instalment of music and arts for upcoming artists dubbed Soul Sundays, scheduled for 25th February at The Shack in Lilongwe.

The event will showcase the final winning applicants of the call out done by Soulamp Entertainment, according to Kananji Msaka, project manager of the Soul Art-Reach initiative.

“Our first event had the right energy, the artists were ready to showcase themselves and the crowd soaked in everything they had to give.

“We loved to see the residents of Malawi coming out to listen to artists they had not heard of before and genuinely giving them a chance to impress them. We are looking forward to that same energy at the second event,” Msaka said.

Ill Nate, Mzembe the Poet and 16 Bazz will light the stage this time around, giving a blend of Hip Hop and Poetry. The show will end with a performance from the headliners, The King’s Rifles.

Last year, Soulamp Entertainment had called out for up and coming artists, including Phrone99, Tiya Joan, Mave Bakali along with Ill Nate, Mzembe The Poet and 16 Bazz. All these won a spot to perform at two Soul Art-Reach events.

The first event featured Phrone99, Tiya Joan, Mave Bakali, and was held at Story Club on Sunday, 1st October, 2023, with D.O. Dub headlining the event.

“Soul Sundays was more than just an event, it was a platform where I got to express myself as a music artist/poet as well as forge new friendships and meaningful connections in the industry.
