Blantyre — The famed street party that disappeared for almost 10 years and reappeared last year on 31st December in Blantyre will now take place in the country's capital city on July 25th at the Lilongwe City Centre Independence Drive as part of the country's 50 years independence anniversary celebrations.
According to organizers of the event, Entertainers Promotion's boss, Jai Banda, he got a lot of requests from Lilongwe fans to have the bash there and he says he wants to deliver the promise.
Jai Banda took it to his facebook page saying: "I love Lilongwe and trust on 25th July the whole of Lilongwe will converge at the City Centre. Last year on 31st December, Blantyre was on fire but Lilongwe 'kaya zikatha bwanji sipaja mumati amuna andalama ali ku Lilongwe?' (I don't how it is going to be like since you boast of having rich people in Lilongwe) yes it's the Carlsberg Street Party, will you be there?"
Jai also popularly known as Mr Entertainer promised Lilongwe people good sound saying: "Lilongwe, we wish to assure you one thing, good sound 'apapa sitimachotsela (no doubt about that) and we do not compromise when it comes to quality. Come and celebrate Malawi's 50 Years of Independence on the 25th of July at the Lilongwe City Centre Independence Drive."
There will be performances by Soldier Lucius Banda, Skeffa Chimoto, Sir Paul Banda, Mizu Band, Lulu, Gwamba and Chill Djs Grand Finale and the Carlsberg fun truck.
Jai also assured fans that there will be tight security just as was the case in Blantyre.
Last year, there was huge presence of security officers on Victoria Avenue where the bash took place and they ensured tight security and Carlsberg also made sure imbibers use plastic cups and these measures helped to control accidents due to bottle breakage and use in violence.
The bash is scheduled to start at 6pm and end at 6am the next day.
