After its official launch in Lilongwe, ‘Music as a Tool for Social Change’, a documentary by hip-hop artist Fredokiss will be shown on the big screen in Blantyre on June 9.
Fredokiss, real name Penjani Kalua, said there has been high demand for the documentary which has compelled them to bring the work on the market immediately after the second launch in Blantyre.
“This particular event offers a unique experience for Blantyre residents and those who could not make it to the Lilongwe launch. Innovation guides all our events and this time around people should be assured of new and exciting things on the menu,” he said.
From the colourful event, which marked the unveiling of the documentary at the Bingu International Convention Centre (Bicc) in Lilongwe, another new dimension has been added as people will be accorded the cinema experience of the documentary.
Said Fredokiss: “We have underlying themes of hope, patience, hard work, perseverance, and the general possibilities that the youth can tap from. The documentary attempts to show how powerful music is in the context of social change.’
Music as a Tool for Social Change documentary will be viewed on the big screen at Game Underground Cinema in Blantyre alongside other activities like cocktail, photo booth and social interactions.
During the launch in Lilongwe on April 26, high-profile names such as British High Commissioner Holy Tett, American Ambassador Virginia Palmer, German Ambassador Jurgen Borch and Unicef’s Roisin De Burca were all in attendance.
This time around, Fredokiss has partnered with the hosts of the event Game Underground Cinema for the venture.
Manager for the place Sunduzwayo Jere said they have decided to support the cause after looking at the cause that the artist is advancing.
“He is using his talent and commitment to bring positive change among Malawian youths. That aligns with our vision of supporting the growth of performances of arts in Malawi,” he said.
The launch event will run from 3pm to 7pm and tickets for VIP are going at K10 000 while ordinary tickets are pegged at K5 000.
