It was an unusual night at Paris Night club in Mzuzu as one of the country’s hottest artists, Wikise of the Shabalakatakari fame made a surprise appearance and did his hit, Shabalakatakari on 7th April 2018.
Initially, Wikise, who was in the company of his right handman, Abusa Aang’ono were in transit to perform in Karonga and just made a stopover at the drinking joint.
But upon being recognized, the audience persuaded the duo to dish out a sample of their popular tracks; and Wikise obliged. He dished out Shabalakatakari, to the amazement of the largely inebrieted audience. And Abusa Aang’ono’s dancing antics left many in awe.
Asked why he performed, Wikise said he had to honor the wishes of his fans.
“Was not in my plan to perform here, but after a few members of the audience approached me for a song, I had to make them happy; I had to perform.” He revealed.
The event almost turned into a full throttle gig as a Mzuzu-based dancehall artist, Banya Blilng also took to the stage and performed one of his popular hits, Vapachanya.
The artist-Wikise was on his way to Karonga where he was supposed to perform the following day (Sunday, 8th April, 2018). His previous performance in Mzuzu, was at Skyway College during a social week a couple of months ago.
