Classic Events has been advised to continue doing functions that will promote unity among Muslims in Malawi.
The call was made by South African based nasheed Maestro Zain Bhikha upon completing his two-day fundraising concerts tour in the country.
“I am very impressed with what these young professionals are doing in the country. They are very organised and seems to know what they are doing. I understand this is a second big function after Muslim Awards which have brought together all Muslims regardless of race, social and financial status. It is something that needs to be commended and encouraged at all cost,” he said.
The nasheed Maestro therefore advised the team to keep their intention clean and not allow shaytan to disband them.
He said: “What they have done is something that is big and very admirable. What is important is to keep their intentions clean and avoid listening to gossips. They have a very bright future if they continue working like this.”
In his remarks, Bashir Amin who is responsible for communications at Classic Events said it was very “encouraging” to get such feedback from someone “big” like Zain Bhikha.
“It is not easy to host an international artist like Zain Bhikha. People have tried and have failed. So this is a milestone to us. Everyone now knows how great Zain is– those who patronised one of the shows saw it with their naked eyes. So, getting such good feedback from him it is something very encouraging for us,” he said.
Bashir said the aim of the Classic Events is to change the way how Muslims think and how other people think a bout Muslims.
“And this is exactly what we are doing. Who thought Muslims would gather at Robins Park? Who thought Muslims could be organised like thaf? This is what we want and we promise more surprising things are coming,” said Bashir.
Zain Bhikha who is Islamic Relief Ambassador was in the country to help raise funds for 2015 Malawi Muslim Awards.
After learning the idea behind Malawi Muslim Awards initiative, Zain offered himself to come on charity, meeting all flight costs and without charging any honorium.
He performed on January 24 at Robins Park in Blantyre and January 25 at Crossroads Hotel in Lilongwe.
He described all shows successful and promised to put Malawi on the list of touring countries.
Classic Events was registered as a company and is being run by four young Muslim professionals namely; Marshall Dyton (Freelance Journalist & Multimedia Developer who is also founder of Malawi Muslims Official Website), Bashir Amin (Producer at Malawi Broadcasting Corporation) Ishmael Ntenje (Trainer at Malawi Savings Bank) and Ali Blessings Idi (Head of Presentation at Radio Islam).
