Event organizer for the Amapiano Winter Vibes, Biggie Lu through his label Myuziki Pusha Entertainment is calling for help following an unsuccessful show on Saturday at Dominic’s in Blantyre.
Initially, Biggie Lu had listed controversial South African dancer, Zodwa Wabantu to host the show but her entry into the country was denied by the ministry of tourism, culture and wildlife due to her erotic stage acts which was deemed not fit for Malawian culture.
According to Biggie Lu, Zodwa had already pocketed K6 million non-refundable fee as her payment before her entry confirmation into the country.
“What happens is that when these artists are being booked they also have some people looking for their services. The understanding is that they prioritise you over the others. If they were to return that money it would be a loss of business for them,” Biggie Lu said in an earlier interview with The Nation.
With Zodwa being denied entry, the event organizers had to proceed with the show having another South Africa Amapiano star, Vukani as a headliner.
However, things did not turn out as expected as reports indicate that the show flopped due to low patronage.
Following that, reports have emerged that the organiser, Biggie Lu has been left in huge debt to sort and has called on well-wishers to come in and help.
TV personality/artist, Blak Jak confirmed the situation on his Facebook page.
