AKA to headline MUBAS Social weekend event
Malawi University of Business and Applied Sciences (MUBAS) Entertainment Committee (entercom) together with Nyasa Music Group have invited an inter1 prominent artist, Kiernan Jarryd Forbes, popularly known as AKA in the entertainment circles, to perform at a social weekend at the college campus in Blantyre from April 8 to April 9.
In an interview with Malawi News Agency (MANA) on Monday, Nyasa Music Group Chief Executive Officer, James Makunje Junior said they would want to bring something new to spice up the event, hence the invitation extension to AKA to perform at the college, formerly the Polytechnic.
“In previous years, we never invited any inter1 artist to headline the social weekend. This time we want to bring something new and different to the entertainment circles in universities and colleges in Malawi,” said Makunje.
He said the organisers of the show have engaged the police to intensify security during the event.
Michael Kwapala, dubbed MQ the DJ, a 4th year MUBAS student studying Bachelor of Engineering in Biomedical Engineering, said he was geared to host the show and said all preparations are at an advanced stage.
“I am so super-excited and looking forward to a great show; a great day and a best social weekend ever which is to happen during my term as entertainment director,” Kwapala, who is also MUBAS entertainment director, said.
“Moreover, on Friday, there will be another special event to choose Mr. and Miss MUBAS together with an open air disco while on Saturday, costume party will be held in the morning and finally in the evening, the great show will begin,” Kwapala added.
Apart from AKA, Gemini Major, a Malawian artist based in South Africa will also perform together with local supporting artists such as Kell Kay, Don Tarz, Charisma, Spyral and DJ Nathan among others.
Other partners in the organisation of the event other than MUBAS entercom and Nyasa Music Group include TECNO, which has had a hand, My Bucks Corporation as well as Crossroads Hotel.
