Award-winning hip hop artist Tay Grin – born Limbani Kalilani – has made history in the country’s arts circles after he became the first artist from Malawi to appear on a billboard in Times Square, New York City, USA.

Times Square, among others, is regarded as the apex of glamour and showbiz.

The billboard, which publicizes the youthful Malawian’s latest single #JosephKalilani, has excited a number of entertainment enthusiasts in the country who say the development is a game changer.

On his part, Tay told #MalawiHeat that it was an honour. “We thank God,” he said.

Patience Namadingo, a BET awards aspirant, wrote on his page that actually it was not just the first Malawian musician.

This is the first Malawian in general to have his billboard in USA. Let’s go, they see one man coming they see us all coming. Salute Nyau King.”

Grin is one of the internationally recognised Malawian musicians. His international honours includes best traditional video for Chipapa which he won in 2016, in the WhatsApp TV African Music Video.

Limbani has worked with a number of international acts in his music career. Some of the renowned international artists he has been associated with are 2baba, Orezi (Nigeria), Buffaloe Souljah (Zimbabwe) and Vanessa Mdee (Tanzania).

Besides marketing the country to other countries through music, he also raises the flag through politics as an ambassador to the London Political Summit.
