Yemi gets ‘yummy’ at L/stone’s Mosi Day of Thunder concertBy Diggers Correspondent on 23 Apr 2019
Zambian Breweries’ Mosi Day of Thunder has resonated the sound of Zambian music and culture with local superstars joined by Afro pop diva Yemi Alade drawing more than 10,000 fans to the tourism capital.
The cream of Zambian music hit the stage, Saturday night, along with the Nigerian artist, keeping fans in awe as they sang along to the thundering music at Livingstone’s Villa Grounds.
“Zambia is laka! I look forward to doing more collaborations with Zambian artists as I have done in the past with JK. I really love the music here!” exclaimed Yemi before her performance at the annual festival, which is now in its fourth year.
“I am grateful that I have been to the Victoria Falls, I love it! My entire band went out and we experienced it together. I felt like a kid all over again because I do love to play in the rain, and I got the opportunity to do that,” she said of the spray from the mighty falls.
And Yemi called for more collaboration with Zambian musicians: “When it comes to music, it does not matter where you are from.”
The music festival brought thousands of people together from all corners of Zambia and the region.
Zambian hip-hop star Slapdee was filled with excitement after performing on the Mosi stage about how fans responded and embraced local musicians at the event.
Other local artists on the Mosi stage included Mampi, Cleo Ice Queen; Jay Rox; Chef; Empire 408, Thunder Beats finalist K-Leb and team; DJ Mucky; DJ Drew and DJ Boogie on the line-up.
Zambian Breweries Head of Marketing Sibajene Munkombwe said: “This year’s Day of Thunder was bigger and better thanks to all the partners that came aboard to support, and to the fans that keep making the event super-thunderous year after year!”
“We had a fantastic selection of local artists that pulled the crowd, along with Yemi, to promote Zambian tourism and the Victoria Falls,” Munkombwe added.
The event also benefits local talent and local suppliers from Livingstone and other parts of the country, with hundreds of people making a living from the event through catering, security, transport and accommodation.
The “Mosi Day of Thunder” has grown to be one of the region’s leading music festivals, attracting fans from across Zambia and from neighbouring countries, boosting tourism and travel to Zambia’s tourist capital, Livingstone.
The event is a celebration of music and culture that brings together top local artists, a leading regional artist, and up-coming talent.
Previous performers have included South African hip-hop star Cassper Nyovest; Diamond Platnumz; and Danny Kaya, among others.
