South Africa’s award-winning vocalist, Lira, says she is excited to be touring Malawi this summer.
Lira is expected to headline the upcoming Standard Bank Blue Mingoli concert in October.
She confirmed her coming to Malawi a day after Nyasa Showbiz reported on her tour last Friday.
“I am so excited to be performing at this year’s Blue Mingoli concert on the 24 of October,” confirmed the artist, born Lerato Molapo, in an audio message which Standard Bank played during a curtain-raiser show in Lilongwe.
“I have heard a lot about the warm heart of Africa and what it has to offer and I’m truly honoured to be invited to headline this event.
“I would also like to take this opportunity to wish all the supporting acts all of the best. I am confident that together we will give a memorable concert. See you there!” she added.
Margaret Kubwalo-Chaika, the bank’s Head of Personal and Business Banking said the institution was proud to be hosting Lira during the concert, which rebranded from Joy of Jazz.
“Lira is a musician who is on top of her game in contemporary music in South Africa. She leads the pack of Afro-pop and jazz divas on the continent and her resume as a platinum award-winning musician speaks volumes about her repertoire,” said Kubwalo-Chaika.
Lira’s formidable career has seen her perform across the globe, win numerous awards and accolades, earn tens of thousands of fans, and achieve double platinum sales.
