He is one of the pioneers of modern Zambian music and his rich collection of albums makes him an ideal entertainer to rock Chilenje’s Lay By Pub tomorrow after a long silence. Yes, Danny Kaya now called Professor Danny is back in action tomorrow with a show at the Pub that is now becoming home to most local stars. Well-known for his live performances especially for hits like ‘Yakumbuyo’, ‘Joni,’ ‘Live,’ ‘Champion’ plus more, Danny will be accompanied by his ever-fresh band, Mo Fire. He is expected to pull a huge crowd considering he is amongst the old favourites and trusted musicians when it comes to an all-live performance. Organisers at Lay By Pub have picked on Danny as a way of emphasizing on the need to promote authentic live music performances. They say the pub is purely dedicated to bring local entertainment to its clientele and Chilenje locals. Danny’s show tomorrow comes after several other shows that the fast-growing popular venue has hosted. Last week, Macky2 and Karasa rocked the house to the great satisfaction of the revelers who among other things enjoyed a mature crowd, secure parking space and good quality mix of sound. The venue also hosts every Thursday nights, Danny’s protégés Naso and Titus as they go live in a special session called ‘Unplugged’. It is therefore hoped that Danny’s highly anticipated show tomorrow will open more doors to majority authentic band performers that will help beef up Chilenje entertainment package.
