A free show at Kamuzu Upper Stadium in Blantyre on Saturday organised by Lilongwe-based Luso TV provided a perfect tonic for Big Bullets fans as they celebrated their team's win over Epac FC.
With the Bullets game taking place in the main stadium, some quarters felt this would disrupt the show but it ended up giving Bullets fans a platform to celebrate as several Lilongwe-based musicians performed during and after the game.
The musicians, who included Sally Nyundo and his Runtinz Band, Haxi Momba, Greciam Nyambo, Symon and Kendall, Prince Martin and The Soul Raiders and Skeffa Chimoto and Real Sounds, was a thrill to watch as some fans hid under umbrellas as they enjoyed the vibes although others, in celebratory mood, decided to soak and showcasing their dancing skills in the mud.
Luso's TV Senior Presenter Stanley Mpinganjira said that as the company waits for a TV licence from Macra, Luso TV has been embarking on different programmes aimed at exposing Malawian talent.
"We want to promote talent and so we urge artists to utilise this chance. Despite the rains, the show went on well and people have partied with their favourite musicians which is rare to have them on a free show," he said.
The duo of Symon Kamlaka and Kendall Kamwendo, who have a reputation of holding free shows, hailed Luso TV for the concert and encouraged them to continue supporting talent and that by holding a free show they were selling their work and also reaching out to more people.
Some quarters have associated Luso TV with Symon and Kendall but the two said this is not their initiative but they were the first artists to be approached by Luso TV hence being in the spotlight.
