The concert hosted by Michie ‘Zambia’s Sweetheart’, was opened by Zambia’s very own talented musicians Mumba Yachi, Moses Sakala and Angela Nyrienda who all brought their own flair to the show.

The atmosphere was electric, the music was a fusion of different styles, including African rhythms, jazz, and soul, which created a unique sound that kept the audience engaged and energized throughout the night.

The show had a special surprise, as songbird Wezi took to the stage and sang the hit song ‘7 Seconds’ with the legend, the crowd erupted in cheers and screams of excitement.

The concert was closed off with performances by El Mukuka and Kreative Natives, totaling more than six hours of entertaining music for the night.

Director at Alliance France de Lusaka Nail Munigilia said the event was all possible due to support of various entities which fittingly value cultural development.

“It started as a dream, all of this would have been impossible without the support, the trust of our sponsors like our historical sponsors Total Energies Zambia, because they want to trust and invest in culture,” he said.

Munigilia stressed the need to be consistent in organizing similar events so as to strengthen links between the country and others.

“We need to continue organising similar live events, celebrating the links between Zambia and the Francophonie world. These types of events should inspire us to think bigger and on how to connect the young generation of artists to their cultural heritage,” he stressed.

The historic event, was by far, the most important and successful celebration of Francophonie week Alliance Française de Lusaka has held.
