Hangout festival beckons giants in music


One of Malawi’s annual entertainment events Hangout Music Festival has attracted gigantic musicians from Jamaica and South Africa, making it a show to attend this summer.

The event will have Jamaican contemporary artist Jahmiel and South African duet called Blaq Diamond which is famed for the song entitled Ibanoyi, as headliners.

This has brought joy among fun-seekers. Across the country. They believe it is a great pleasure to host such amazing talents in the country.

In a related development, another summer event Sand Music Festival also has an appetising line up of artists. It will involve Jamaican legend Busy Signal. Other headliners include Harmonize from Tanzania and Yo Maps from Zambia.

Late last month, Malawi played host to another internationally recognized singer Kizz Daniel from Nigeria of the Buga fame.

This is believed to be a sign that Malawi as a country will be attracting more international star. However some people consider it to be a bad development as it benefits forerign musicians at the expense of local artists.
