Piksy to storm Mzuzu City with latest single ‘Around’

By Nicholas Magaga Msowoya
Piksy, Malawi’s celebrated urban artist, storms Malawi’s northern region city of Mzuzu Saturday where he is also set to dish out his latest single ‘Around’, released on Monday.
Coming to Mzuzu - Piksy
The artist will share the stage with another of Malawi’s gifted musicians Blackjack, according to one of the organizers of the show Ernest Nkhoma aka Ernie the DJ at the Mzuzu-based Gemini Disco.
“This will be a show with a difference,” said Nkhoma.
He added that they thought of the idea of bringing Piksy up north because of the sheer fact that Mzuzu is usually starved of entertainment.
“Such shows are rare here,” he added. “We want to give people a break from the monotonous discos that characterize typical weekend entertainment in the city.”
Nkhoma said that the merry-making will go at a giveaway fee of K1, 500 only per head.
There will also be dancing and singing competitions on the night and winners will walk away with T shirts plus 2013 nonstop mix jams, mixed by Ernie the DJ.
Talking about his latest single, Piksy aka Chimfana Chodziwika Ndi Boma (CCNB) said his latest single – produced by Blantyre-based producer Tapps Bandawe – is targeting the international market.

“The song talks about taking my mysterious girl across Africa and showing her places she’s never been to,” Piksy, who recently quashed off a contract with his former record label Ndefeyo Entertainment, told a local newspaper.
On Monday, the day the song was released, it got more than 1023 downloads in less than six hours.
Mzuzu City is generally in a deep comma on the entertainment front.  However, lately, the city has shown strong signs of recovering with an increase in live gospel shows attracting large audiences.  
The city is starved of convenient venues for live music performances and that most high budget musicians in Malawi are based either in Blantyre or Lilongwe and when they come to the north, they need to be sure of not making losses through low turnouts.
