Five contestants progress to Sunbird Search for Star finals

BLANTYRE (MaraPost)—Five contestants have progressed to the finals of the Sunbird Search for Star music competition after surviving fourth and last eviction show held last Saturday in Blantyre.

The final show will be held on December 14 at Sunbird Capital Hotel in Lilongwe where the winner will walk away with K500,000 as grand prize, K300,000 and K200,000 will be given to second and third finalists, respectively.

The show lived up to the billing with contestants, who performed local trucks such as Ned Mapira’s Kaphiri kakwanthu, Alan Namoko’s Lameck, Lucky Stars’ Chinafunabale, Micheal Yekha’s Ndiwerengere ndalama, Bright Nkhata’s Ndiri ndimanyazi, Kalimba Band’s Mlendo ndi mame and Giddes Chalamanda’s Line and Chemeri, received overwhelming praise from the judges and standing ovation from the audience.

There was apparent excitement among the patronage with some taking to the dance floor in appreciation to the golden old music, which really made the fourth eviction four very captivating.

The finalists are Sithembire Banda, Brian Kachilowa, Adrian Kwerepete, Ruth Magona and Chisomo ‘Chichi’ Nteteka.

The contestants who were shown the exit door despite splendid performance are Dorothy, Kondwani Luwe, Gift Vole and Stanley, christened as ‘Tholo’. 

The show was also spiced up with live performances from acoustic musicians David and Edgar who equally mesmerized the audience with their tracks such as ‘Ndifuna Energy Saver’ and ‘Fanuel’.

The ‘old man himself’, Giddes Chalamanda also added colour to the event when he separately joined two contestants (Chisomo and Brian) on stage singing and dancing to the delight of the fans, who couldn’t help, but follow suit.

During the show, sponsors of the music competition, Sunbird Tourism also splashed prizes to lucky winners of a raffle draw. The grand prize of two nights for two people at any sunbird Hotels went to Linga Gondwe whereas Sally Chanza and Elizabeth Kwaila won dinner for two at Sunbird Mount Soche Hotel’s Picasso Restaurant. Seven other won Sunbird branded umbrellas.
