Roots singer Luciano is set to become the first Jamaican reggae artiste to perform in the south-east African country of Malawi.
Luciano will play at the Lilongwe Golf Club on October 19 in the capital city Lilongwe.
He was invited to Malawi by Nelson Shaba, a Malawian musician/promoter who lives in South Africa where he operates Born Afrikan Productions.
The newspaper also reported that Luciano has other African gigs in October but did not state where.
Luciano is said to be popular in Malawi through songs such as Lord Give Me Strength, Sweep Over My Soul, It’s Me Again Jah and New Day.
The media noted that dub poet Mutabaruka has visited Malawi twice for the Blantyre Arts Festival but did not perform.
