Multi-award winning South African Afro pop group Mafikizolo is in Malawi to perform at celebrations of South Africa’s Youth and 23 years of freedom at Bingu International Conference Centre (BICC) in Lilongwe today (Friday).
Organized by the South African High Commissioner to Malawi, Thenjiwe Mtintso, Mafikizolo’s coming to Malawi is part of political, diplomatic, cultural and networking extravaganza the High Commission is hosting in partnership with some South African businesses and other partners.
The proceeds of the show which they will perform with Malawi’s popular artist, Tay Grin, will be chanelled towards construction of classrooms at Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Natural Resources (Luanar) where students are learning in a tent due to shortage of classrooms.
Mtintso said the funds have been earmarked for that project as a way of promoting the youth who are an integral component of development of any nation.
