In an interview with this paper, Samuel Mwale, the Events Coordinator for MAA-SA explained that preparations have been smooth and that fun lovers in South Africa should hope for the best during the event which aims to unite Malawians living in South Africa, by among others awarding individuals who have been extraordinary in their field activities.
“We have taken the great step and we have involved local acts. This is for Malawi and we celebrate Malawi in style this coming month as we award individuals who have been extraordinary towards the wellbeing of people in Malawi and South Africa,” he said.
Artists billed to perform on the night include Tay Grin, Fredokiss, Buffalo Souljah, Janta, Nesnes and Don Zagah plus a surprise guest.
“We also wanted to give a corporate platform to local artists to fly to South Africa and entertain the audience on this great night. So apart from Tay Grin and Fredokiss, we also have Janta and Nesnes joining Malawians with their appearance,” explained Mwale.
Among others, the event is expected to award individuals in the categories entertainment, sports, academic, social welfare as well as good will. The diaspora awards started in UK where Piksy and Sonye performed.
