LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)- As freedom threats a lot of things to different talented people. To music enthusiasts performing their enormous talented styles at Rosevine gardens, in Lilongwe on last Friday evening as it was dubbed ‘unplugged Fridays’, the musical performance was both timely and thrilling.

Rosevine the owner of Rosevine garden Area 3 in the city together with the event producer, Samantha Nampuntha, did not disappoint the sizable audience with their first latest unplugged session of artists showcasing their hidden talents as they were launching their careers.

At the end of an hour performances, there were not even a few things that went wrong; perhaps the size of the audience or the length of the performance was awe-inspiring on the stage as artists were performing.

But the lighting of the stage, the set up cascade with different shinning lights was well choreographed.

In one acoustic line, the event was about finding hidden talents in Malawi, as artists do not usually hear about or hope to launch their careers on stage.

This made Samantha and Rosevine, working in a creative industry to fill the gap by coming up with ‘unplugged Fridays’ concept.

“Working in the creative industry, I usually come across many talented musicians, I then noticed how there is always a market for those who have made it but not those who are still finding their feet,” explained Nampuntha.

Nampuntha further said being their first event, artists received a great audience and expanded their reach.

“The name unplugged came from Rosevine, we were looking to have a acoustic Fridays.

“As this is the first unplugged event despite me as I have been organizing events for six years now, people should expect beautiful music from artists as they never expected to find,” Nampuntha said.

In a separate interview with, one of the artists from the King’s Rifles, Simbaraishe Nicholas whose stage name is 5 Lettaz was so excited with the first performance.

“Am much honored to have been a part of the first unplugged session at Rosevine, the mood, the energy, and the atmosphere couldn’t have been scripted better.

“I look forward to many more and also look forward to experiencing the many different acts as well as talents Malawi has to offer. This was definitely one for the books,” Nicholas said.

The event had five acts performed from the King’s Rifles, Reality 808 and Focus Malawi from the record label, as well as the Connect Entertainment and there was a surprise performance from a King of Dancehall artist, Blasto.
