Among the musicians who graced the show were Amayenge band who performed live on stage. They performed tracks like their classic hit ‘Mao’ and ‘Dailesi’. It was clear that most patrons were eager to listen to these songs as they are a reflection of the Zambian culture.
Band leader Alice Chali took the opportunity to advise students to go for Voluntary Counseling and Testing (VCT) and use condoms every time they had sex.
K’millian was next on stage to add his voice to the celebrations. He performed some songs from his previous albums like ‘Kakabalika’ and ‘Nizakukonda’.
The audience demanded that he sings ‘No more love’; a song he featured on. However, he failed to sing it because Macky 2 was not available at the time, much to the crowd’s disappointment.
Mampi also made an appearance in a stylish attire with two of her dancing queens. Her opening performance was ‘Girl on fire’ and ‘Mvela’ originally done by Alicia Keys and the late Lilly Tembo respectively. She also performed her latest hit single ‘Nikumpampule’. Her dancing queens spiced up the show with their energetic and exciting dance moves.
Uncle Rex and Band brought a different dimension to the show as they performed some foreign songs like ‘Don’t you worry child’ and ‘chop my money’ almost like the original.
The cold night even heated up as Macky 2 bounced on the stage and danced the kopala swag dance. Macky 2 delivered the on-demand song ‘No more love’ which K’millian had earlier failed to perform.
The next person to come out on stage was Runell with his dancing queens who thrilled the patrons with their ‘booty bouncing’ skill. The stage went “on fire” as Runnel started calling out male patrons to get on stage and dance with his queens.
After a thrilling performance by Runell, M.C Wabwino graced the stage to wrap up the show with songs like ‘Rumour’ and ‘Mbeta’.
The event pulled a large number of people that consisted of kids, youths and the elderly. Most of the people interviewed said the event was well organised.
The celebrations continue today with artists like Slap D, Judy and many more.
This musical concert was organised by the Lusaka 100 years committee under the Lusaka City Council.
