South African singer, pianist, dancer and performer Toya De Lazy is among international headliners of this year’s Lake of Stars (LoS) Festival.
The South African Music Awards (Sama) winner, Toya, sprung onto the global spotlight with her hit Pump It On in 2011, which topped charts both in South Africa and globally.
She has and continues to wow audiences with her catchy tunes and stunning live shows.
Her latest hit, My City, which features Cassper Nyovest, is the second single off her sophomore album Ascension.
This year’s festival takes place from 25 to 27 September at Sunbird Nkopola Lodge in Mangochi.
“This year’s festival is set to be bigger and better than ever before,” organisers have announced.
Toya De Lazy will be joined by a genre-hopping lineup of the hottest talent from Malawi and beyond, with a growing programme including Mercury Prize winners Young Fathers, Nigeria’s Ric Hassani of Dance Baby fame, Congolese slam artist Menes and Malawi’s own Gwamba, Dan Lu, Agorosso, Lulu, Danny Kalima, Bucci, George Kalukusha and many more to be announced.
Born Latoya Nontokozo Buthelezi, Toya De Lazy, is the granddaughter of South African politician Mangosuthu Buthelezi and the granddaughter of Princess Magogo, a traditional Zulu composer.
