Meet celebrated, adorable Malawi’s Master of Ceremony Chris Loka

MC Chris Loka

LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-Hosting an event including weddings, engagement, corporate event and any other public events that catch audience, therefore the name to remember in Malawi is Chris Loka.

Engaging Master of Ceremony (MC) Loka, is value for your money for any events.

The Maravi Post therefore caught up MC Chris Loka on his journey and what’s the future holds him.

Background and Education

My Name is Chris Loka; I come from Chigojo Village, Traditional Authority (T.A) Machinjiri in Blantyre.

I did my primary school at Mapazi and South Lunzu Primary schools and secondary at Chilaweni community day secondary school.

In 2012, I joined Malawi institute of Journalism (MIJ) where I did certificate and Diploma in Journalism. During my studies at MIJ, I started working with Channel for All Nations as a Presenter and a Reporter on voluntary basis.

Radio and TV program presenter, reporter

Being a radio presenter helped me a lot in shaping my public speaking skills and that also motivated my bosses then who also gave me a TV Program, not that because I am photogenic, of course I am!! But because I was able to deliver the program in both Chichewa and English. I also speak Yao yes.

For many years, I have been hosting various shows including album launches and Channel for All Nations annual events such as Christmas Bash and Mlakatuli. I used to love everything about event hosting and I always sort to improve each and every time to become the best.

The pathway to Master of Ceremony (MC)

Later, I joined The University of Malawi, Chancellor College where I did Communication and Cultural Studies specializing in Public Relations. Courses like Public Speaking added flavour to my skills of hosting events. I learnt that Knowing how, where and what to say is crucial in every kind of communication, whether one on one or One to Many.

Being MC

After my studies at Chancellor College I decided to fully embrace the art of public speaking by starting hosting Engagements, Weddings and Corporate Events. I defined myself as an employed Master of Ceremonies against the conventional belief of looking for a job.

When I just started, I did not have an idea of where I would end. I just saw this huge desire in me to fully harness the art of public speaking. Many people did not understand what I was up to. They thought thinking of becoming an MC while I have a degree was a waste of time.

Now I have successfully hosted several events including corporate ones and the feedback is overwhelming.

Being asked to serve as a Master of Ceremonies at any event is a huge honor.But there’s a lot of pressure that comes with the job too. But contrary to popular belief, you are not up there to be the center of attention or to be the official comedian. You are the host and it’s your job to keep the proceedings on time and make sure everyone is enjoying themselves.

The future in MC as a career

In the next few years coming I would want to be one of the best MCs in town.Not only being the host of weddings and Engagements but state functions and other international events.

Message to young people

Many young people tend to underrate themselves and spend time admiring what others have and they wish they were like their neighbor. However, complaining won’t change anything. You are what you are. God created everyone with exceptional skills, gifts and capabilities. Let’s us use our natural talents, skills, passion and abilities to make the difference in our lives, the life of others and society.

It’s true that there is high rate of unemployment in the country but if we keep on crying, we will cry for ever.

It’s time for us young people to wake up from the slumber and redefine ourselves, do self analysis and see what can bring us money within ourselves.
