Malawians dream of watching the award-winning Jamaican dancehall artist Busy Signal performing live in the country is slowly coming to reality as the artist is set to headline this year’s Sunbird Sand Music Festival scheduled to take place at Sunbird Livingstonia Beach in Salima from October 30 to November 1.
Busy Signal’s agent Spencer Mutemasango confirmed of the development in an interview with the press.
Chairperson of Sand Music Festival Lucius Banda also confirmed of the development in an interview with Nation Newspaper.
Banda described Busy Signal as not only a landmark for the festival, but also someone who will create opportunities for local artists.
“Busy Signal is one of the influential musicians in the world who will make a difference to Sand Music Festival and Malawi’s entertainment industry as a whole,” Banda was quoted as saying.
Busy Signal is well-known for the number one hits Dreams of Brighter Days, Come Over, The Gambler and Reggae Music Again.
Apart from Busy Signal, this year’s Sand Music Festival will take on board Zimbabwe’s Jah Prayzer, Danny from Zambia, the Black Missionaries, Lucius Banda and his Zembani Band, Nepman, Lulu, Skeffa Chimoto, BlakJack, Ethel Kamwendo Banda, Thocco Katimba, Great Angels Choir, Paul Banda and Edgar ndi Davis, among others.
